The past few weeks have been extremely busy for the Nintendo eShop of the Nintendo Switch, and the good news for players (bad news for their wallets and free time!) is that the pace of new releases isn’t going to slow down any time soon. One of those scheduled for next week (on November 30th) is a really unique game called Opus: The Day We Found Earth.
This game is described as a “stargazing experience handcrafted for people who enjoy story driven games and arguing about Pluto”. Your goal is to help a childlike robot called Emeth carry on his creator’s will: find humanity’s long lost home. After spending eons spreading across the cosmos, people lost their way back, and it’s up to that courageous little robot to find it.
Here’s the key features:
- STORY – Millions of years in the future, mankind has forgotten its origin – Earth. Help Emeth carry on his creator’s wish of finding it, as he realizes a greater purpose inside his tiny mechanical heart. An atmospheric, heartfelt story written by a multi-award winning writer awaits you!
- SCAN – Operate a space telescope to scan for nearby stars like a NASA scientist! SEARCH – Explore a spaceship full of mysterious items to uncover the history of a centuries-old mission.
- ART – Dive into outer space to explore a vibrant starscape full of lovingly crafted planets, nebulas, stars and galaxies.
- MUSIC – Enjoy 17 beautiful bittersweet soundtracks, and prepare to lose yourself in the organically generated soundscape while you wander through the galaxy!
And here’s the trailer for the game, that will cost $5 / 5€:
