Narrative poker game Sunshine Shuffle is out now for PC

From Press Release:

El Paso, TX – May 24, 2023 – Prolific independent publisher and developer Strange Scaffold today released its latest project, Sunshine Shuffle. This crime-drama-meets-poker-sim challenges players to uncover the truth behind a decade-old heist while out to sea, on a cozy little tugboat manned by adorable animals/bank robbers.

Also, you can decorate the boat.

Fans can now download Sunshine Shuffle on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam for $9.99. Catch the official launch trailer below and view the official Steam page for additional details.

The latest game from Strange Scaffold (An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator, El Paso, Elsewhere), Sunshine Shuffle tells an engaging story about loss, family, and armed robbery that unfolds between high-stakes hands of Texas Hold ‘Em. As players bluff, call, and raise their way to the top, they’ll engage opponents in guarded banter that unfolds into respect and friendship. It’s a neo-noir tale told with equal parts intrigue and empathy.

In addition to playing cards and learning about crimes, players can earn decoration options to make the S.S. Sunshine their own. Spruce up the place with new cosmetics and props, or go wild and dress everyone up in unlockable outfits. Just remember: the kitten at the table is a card shark.

Key features include:

  • A fusion of poker and narrative adventure, with a story that unfolds as you play;

  • Deep neo-noir story told with style, care, and the pain of hindsight;

  • Unlockable conversations that further reveal the story of the Morning Shift and their lives before and after forming the infamous heist crew;

  • Rewards for careful strategy that let you decorate the S.S. Sunshine your way, with plastic skeletons and fish bowls and a dice-themed carpet;

  • Original ska soundtrack from acclaimed musicians JER (Skatune Network, We Are The Union) and RJ Lake (Unbeatable, Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator);

  • A seadog with an eyepatch named Fidelius.

Sunshine Shuffle is rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB. For more information on Sunshine Shuffle and Strange Scaffold, visit
