Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac

La Poule Noire have announced their first game for the Nintendo Switch: Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac, a “point-and-cluck” about a chicken and the colourful city of Boulzac (and more precisely its dark secret). It will be released later this year in Europe and North America.

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

Join 40’s something, eccentric outcast Edgar as he sets out to Boulzac to save his beloved squash alongside his trusty hen, and instead uncovers an unearthly secret at the heart of the city. A colourful, surreal and utterly bonkers point-and-cluck narrative adventure, Edgar is a comic narrative game set in a weird and rich universe. The action takes place in a small city, reminiscent of the french countryside with its share of cliché and fascinating characters.

  • Story Rich – A comical story-based adventure based around unravelling a conspiracy. Not everything is as it seems in Boulzac.
  • Weird things are afoot – Explore a strange and comic universe, meeting its unhinged (and unforgettable) inhabitants and discovering ancient secrets.
  • Whip-smart, surreal and satirical – Equal parts whimsical and dark: you’ve not met a cosmic horror like this before.

Edgar – Bokbok in Boulzac (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
