Timothy and the Mysterious Forest

QubicGames have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Timothy and the Mysterious Forest (developed by Gamera Interactive). It will be released on January 22nd in Europe and North America.

Here’s some details and some screenshots:

Timothy it’s an “old school” style title with some modern-age ideas. A mix of retro graphics along with meta-narrative, stealth system action combat!

Timothy, a common child, wants to save his grandfather from certain death. The old man fell ill and he’s now fighting for his life. Timothy, who loves his grandfather very much, decides to take a risky journey to the infamous Mysterious Forest. Legends speak of a magic mushroom able to cure any disease that grows into the forest. Timothy bravely begins his journey to find the magic mushroom.

The game mixes elements from adventure/exploration games with puzzle and stealth: exploration, reading and keeping a slow pace is the best tactic. The high difficulty level is the base: Timothy is basically defenceless and dies with a single touch from enemies or traps.

The world is full of ruins, graveyards and tombstones, caves, swamps and weird characters: every place is made to look wild, abandoned and dangerous. Except for Timothy’s grandfather, most characters are often mean or clearly driven by not-so-nice feelings.

Timothy and the Mysterious Forest (Switch – eShop) comes out on January 22nd in Europe and North America. No release date for Japan yet.
