Digerati have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Grotto, a fantasy narrative game developed by Brainwash Gang. It will be released sometime in the second half of 2021.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

In development since 2018, Grotto is a fantasy narrative game that casts players in the role of the Soothsayer – a mysterious hermit who resides in the titular cave and is called upon to read the stars and provide counsel to a primitive tribe.

Grotto is a mystical, narrative-focused experience. You are the Soothsayer. The one capable of talking with the stars and unveiling their messages. In a time of turmoil, the tribe of the valley turn to your powers of divination and come to you for guidance.

Their fate will change depending on your auguries. Overthink every constellation, or let the stars freely enter your mind. You are the Soothsayer and yours is the way to read the future.

  • Look to the sky from the sacred rock, draw the constellations, and read the stars
  • Learn to read the bones and foretell the future or contact those who are gone
  • Get to know your people and help them face their problems
  • Choose wisely your answers as you’ll change the present and future of your tribe. They will thrive or die depending on your words
  • A visual style that mixes 2D and 3D art brings the confined world of Grotto to life
