Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo announced for Nintendo Switch

Microids have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, an adventure game based on the classic movie by Alfred Hitchcock. It’s developed by Pendulo Studios, who previously worked on Blacksad: Under the Skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the game, though we do have a teaser trailer… that doesn’t show much:

Writer Ed Miller came out unscathed from his car crash down into Brody Canyon, California. Even though no one was found inside the car wreckage, Ed insists that he was traveling with his wife and daughter. Traumatized by this event, he begins to suffer from severe vertigo. As he starts therapy, he will try to uncover what really happened on that tragic day. Prepare yourself for a most disturbing investigation inside the human mind: truth is sometimes worse than madness.

However, if you want to learn more about the game, Microids also shared a Dev Diary video where Josué Monchan discusses the Hitchcock inspirations for the game:

Finally, here’s the list of key features and some screenshots:

  • An original story about obsession, manipulation and madness, inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo.
  • Live a powerful narrative experience paying tribute to the visual and storytelling techniques of the thriller genre.
  • Investigate through the vision of three characters: everyone has a different story to tell.
  • Explore several timelines to cross-check the events and separate reality from deceptive memories.
  • Developed by the award-winning adventure game studio Pendulo Studios.
