Modus Games and developer Sketchbook Games have announced that Lost Words: Beyond the Page, a critically-acclaimed narrative adventure, will be launching on Nintendo Switch on 6th April.
Described as “a captivating adventure wrapped in an overarching and undeniably touching narrative,” the game was penned by Mirror’s Edge and Tomb Raider writer Rhianna Pratchett, also known as the daughter of famed fantasy writer, Sir Terry Pratchett. It’s earned a number of awards leading up to this console release, including ‘Best Indie Game’ at Game Connection Paris and ‘Excellence in Narrative’ at DevGAMM.
“When Izzy comes to terms with the trauma of losing a loved one close to her, she envelopes herself into a surreal story that evolves and shapes itself in ways no one could ever see coming.”
The game has players interacting with words written in Izzy’s diary to solve puzzles and build new platforming segments. You’ll unlock new puzzle-solving methods and chapters to explore as you go, and if the new trailer (up above) is anything to go by, it looks like it could be a real treat.
As noted above, the game will be available to download from the Switch eShop from 6th April. Feel free to share your thoughts on this one in the comments below.
