Hot on the heels of a big reveal for the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, Eastasiasoft has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch will be getting it’s own dose of future dystopia. Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is set for launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch later this year.
Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is a 2.5D game inspired by horror adventure games of the PlayStation 2 era. Promising careful attention to pacing, atmosphere and storytelling, the game hopes to return the horror genre to its roots. A slow, fearful creep of dread instead of relying on over the top action and jump scares, Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is unlike anything currently available on Nintendo Switch.
Set in Neo Hong Kong, 2083, a young woman named Mei-Lin Mak attempts to solve a century old mystery. But in doing so is dragged into a maelstrom of supernatural horror. She is forced to question her perception of reality trusting only in her cybernetic eyes.
Under the neon lights of a cyberpunk dystopia, the ruins of the ‘Chong Sing Apartments’ hides a bloody mystery illuminated by both the traditions of Chinese folklore and the innovations of the industrial future. If there is any hope of escaping this nightmare, Mei-Lin must explore this complex, piecing together the stories of 14 lost souls, and discover the truth of her own family curse.
The ghosts – as glitches in our reality – act as spiritual and paranormal threats. These are not monsters to be killed. The horror of the game comes from atmosphere and storytelling, opposed to loud sound and artificial effects.
Eastasiasoft has taken to delivering many alternative game experiences on Nintendo Switch. The recently released BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre is evident to this. Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story will launch as both digital and physical editions later this year.
