Taking it’s cues from the recently launched global phenomenon (for more reasons than sales) Cyberpunk 2077, Eastasiasoft’s own cyberpunk game experienced a delay in its release. Originally set for late 2020, Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is available for Nintendo Switch from today.
Inspired by the origins of the survival horror genre, Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story eschews horror tradition. The game celebrates the slow, cerebral creep of dread instead of relying on over-the-top action or jump scares. The player will need to search every nook-and-cranny, and some items may not be visible until specific events have occurred. Furthermore, they may be hidden from Mei’s cybernetic eyes, as if spirited away by the ghosts stalking her. Some may require quick wit – and have urgent consequences.
Set in Neo Hong Kong, 2083, a young woman named Mei Lin Mak is dragged into a maelstrom of supernatural horror. As she peers into the century old mystery, Mei is forced to question her perception of reality and her trust of her cybernetic eyes.
Under the neon lights of a cyberpunk cityscape, the ruins of the Chong Sing Apartments hide a bloody secret. Illuminated by traditions of Chinese folklore and innovations of the industrial future, Mei Lin finds more lurking beneath the surface. If there is any hope of escaping this nightmare, Mei Lin must piece together stories of 14 lost souls. Can she discover the truth of her own family curse?
With careful attention to pacing, atmosphere and storytelling, Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story blends 2.5D exploration and problem solving with suspenseful ghost encounters.
Inspired by classics such as Clock Tower and Fatal Frame, the game has been developed by Suzaku and Top Hat Studios. Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story can be downloaded for Nintendo Switch now, via the Nintendo eShop. Be sure to check out the latest deals on Nintendo eShop credit.
