STEAM PAGE COMING SOON! I am so incredibly proud of Mrs. Switchmania and all her hard work as she brought Sammy the Sock to life! Whether you are a fan of children's rhyming books, have a young one who's ready for an adventure, or just looking for an amazing gift, Sammy the Sock is for you. Grab your softcover or hardcover copy here!

Also, we're making a game! Here's our first teaser trailer to introduce you to Sammy the Sock: A Picturebook Adventure!


Do you wish your 1st Party Nintendo Switch games included an instruction booklet? Then you're in luck because my friend Rowan is here to save the day! Make sure to visit his website here to grab all the instruction booklets he's created as well as follow him to be kept up to date on future releases.

Limited/Indie Physical Publishers

Please note that due to the constantly changing availability and releases, I have decided to just provide links to the limited/indie publishers' sites. I encourage you all to visit their sites, see what they have, and support their continued efforts to help bring digital only games physically!

If I am missing any companies, please let me know so I can have them added.
