Here’s two trailers for the game and some details:
It’s very simple, the player controls Lydia and interacts with items and characters. Several dialogue options are available and trigger different reactions but lead to the same final path.
A grim, oniric and anxious climate is set by gray-scale graphics hand-drawn by published graphic novel artist Henri Tervapuro and by an emotional music/voice composed by renowned film composer Juhana Lehtiniemi.
The tale of a girl who wishes for a happy childhood but can never have it. Grow up with Lydia, witness and try to understand the feelings, behaviours and events that moulded critical moments of her life. How may a little girl full of imagination perceive the twisted and manipulative family dynamics? How do you fight a monster you can’t see?
Lydia (Switch – eShop) comes out on January 17th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
