The Sundew

2054 have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: The Sundew, a dark cyberpunk, retro-styled adventure game. It will be released this Summer in Europe and North America.

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

Set in the aftermath of a devastating future war, where the world as we know it was twisted by flames into a terrifying new dystopia, The Sundew follows a lonely beat cop who soon holds the fate of the world in her hands.

Inspired by classic point-and-click adventure games from LucasArts and Wadjet Eye Games, The Sundew pays homage to those with its gameplay mechanics, style, and storytelling. Beautifully drawn pixel-art, stunning minimalistic sound design, environments brimming with atmosphere and interactivity, and a compact, thrilling tale brings this dark future to life and grounds you in a vision of humanity’s progress that is both alien and strangely familiar…

You are Anna Isobe, a cybernetically enhanced cop in a world that’s left you behind. Once a shining hope for the future, cyborgs have become taboo, replaced by drones and automata that make even your heightened abilities obsolete. Stuck in a thankless job surrounded by indifferent eyes you still have a duty to protect and serve, and that’s just what you’re going to do.

  • Guide Anna Isobe, a cyborg cop with a dark past, through the unravelling of a global conspiracy.
  • Experience a diverse cast of characters, each with their own secrets and history.
  • Explore Shibukawa and the remnants of the old world.
  • Make decisions that will change the fate of humanity, for better or worse.

The Sundew (Switch – eShop) comes out this Summer in Europe and North America.
