It seems that by the time we’re done writing about a new indie game coming to the Nintendo Switch, three others are announced! And the one introduced in this post should please fans of point ‘n click and adventure game: it’s Violett, from Forever Entertainment, which is coming to the Nintendo Switch “soon”.
But what kind of game Violett is, exactly? The developers describe it as a 2,5D point-and-click adventure game, set in a “world full of wonders, quirks and things from beyond our reality”. The developers promise that it will “will push your brain to the limits and engross you completely.” That’s… quite the bold claim, isn’t it!
Here’s what Violett is all about:
Dragged by her parents, a young and rebellious teenage girl – Violett, moves to an old spooky house in the middle of nowhere. Forced away from her friends and life in the city; she imagines how boring life in countryside will be: spending day after day, bored in her room with absolutely nothing to do. But what she cannot imagine, is that in just few moments, she’ll have the adventure of her life.
A spark of light from the nearby mouse hole catches her attention, she reaches inside and in a blink of an eye she’s in a completely different place. So familiar, yet so distant. So magnificent, and yet dangerous. A place where frogs singing operas are daily occurrence, garden gnomes are emissaries from another dimension and power of telekinesis is not freaking anyone out. Now only your wit and luck can help her unite with her parents.
Just like any point ‘n clikc / adventure game worth its salt, Violett has various (more or less) intricate puzzles, that you need to solve in order to progress through the story. You can also use your telekinesis power, which will definitely help you fight the evil spider queen that wants one thing… turn you into a her new trophy!
According to the developers, the wold was inspired by works such as Alice in Wonderland, Sandman, Dali, and various others.
Here’s the main features of the game, along with some screenshots (not from the Nintendo Switch version, unfortunately):
- Fantastic 2,5D point-and-click adventure game
