To atone for his wicked crimes, Adam, a soldier with a dark past, must set out on a quest for redemption and face off against monstrous enemies based on the seven deadly sins. His vile deeds and history with these beasts will unfold as he draws closer to absolution.
Sacrifice a part of Adam before each duel and receive a permanent debuff, resulting in reduced health, strength or equipment for the entirety of the journey. Each battle will become tougher than the last as debuffs stack, but new gear can be obtained by successfully conquering trials.
If all hope is lost, revive a defeated enemy to regain a sacrificed attribute and revisit the battle later. Experiment to find the optimal path to redemption or take on all debuffs simultaneously from the start for a challenging and rewarding journey.

Earlier this week, FIFTYTWO and Jetdogs announced that Kensho was headed to the Nintendo Switch. Here’s all you need to know about it:
The animated graphics in Kenshō allure and charm at first glance, with their fascinating play of light and shadow, colors that change depending on the state of nature, and flowing lines and transitions of light: all this magical beauty makes gamers forget they are playing a simple 2D game by immersing them in a truly rich visual experience.
The name of the game refers to two terms from the Japanese philosophical concept, Zen: “Ken,” which means “seeing,” and “shō,” which means “nature.” It is shō, nature—its pricelessness, beauty and fragility—that is at the heart of the game, which takes place in a surreal room. Doors inside that room lead to different worlds and breathtaking environments, including lush jungles and stormy seas. The game of Kenshō tells its story through ingame cutscenes and emoji-style conversations that are fun to watch.
Kenshō’s Key Features:
- Rich visual experience
- Unique color-matching puzzle gameplay
- Physical environment and weather conditions
- Emoji-style fascinating storyline
- 11 original songs created by Oscar Rydelius to build a unique Kenshō atmosphere
Kensho (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet, but it’s already been added to the Upcoming Games page!
