This week in trailers (that weren't from BlizzCon): 'The Stretchers,' 'PUBG' Global Champs, 'Cardpocalypse,' more

Check out trailers for surprise release "The Stretchers," sweet prologue chapter to "When the Past Was Around," and world-saving cartoon card game "Cardpocalypse," with a congratulatory round of praise for demon-slaying "Valfaris" and a heads up for the "PUBG" world championships which start this weekend.

The Stretchers

[Launch trailer:]
Feeling a bit dizzy? In the world of "The Stretchers," that means it's time to call the ambulance -- and that's where you come in as a comedy paramedic, hauling patients, impossible loads, time-sensitive deliveries and even, it would seem, towering tree trunks to where they need to be. Out now as a surprise immediate release on Nintendo Switch.

When the Past Was Around - Prologue

[Prologue Trailer:]
Announcing the release of a free playable introductory chapter to this March - May 2020 PC game about the connection between a young woman and an anthropomorphic owl, about love and letting go, about memories, time, tea and laundry. Another of Brigitta Rena's previous point-and-click puzzle adventures, A Raven Monologue, is also free; She and the Light Bearer has a free demo.


[Official Story Trailer:]
Go to school and save the world from disaster using your powerful deck of Mega Mutant Power Pets cards against the Mega Mutants themselves. On Apple Arcade and PC (Epic Games Store) now, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on December 12.


[Accolades Trailer:]
