So you've got one of the best gaming chairs, have you? Does it play soothing music and massage you while you game? Thought not.

The last time we wrote about Spinch, back in 2018, we were expecting to get our hands on it that summer. That never panned out, but we've now got a new release date to look forward to, September 3, and a weird trailer to tide us over until then.
