Bigmode and Shared Memory have announced that Animal Well will release on Nintendo Switch later this year.

After hatching from your flower, you will have the chance to spelunk through Animal Well’s beautiful and sometimes haunting world – pitched as “a pixelated wonder rendered in intricate audio and visual detail.”

You will encounter lively creatures both small and large as well as helpful and ominous, in your efforts to discover unconventional upgrades and unravel the well’s secrets in an “experience that can make you laugh in fear, surprise, or delight.”

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

Explore – Illuminate the Dark

  • Dense atmospheric puzzle box world with tons of secrets
  • Light candles for safety and gradually fill out your map
  • Nonlinear – explore and collect items in whatever order you choose

Solve puzzles – Observation is rewarded

  • Enemies, environment, and items interact in surprising and systemic ways
  • All items have multiple uses
  • Learn how innocuous details can become meaningful

Survive – Tread Carefully

  • Assess for yourself what is safe and dangerous
  • Focus on tension and suspense rather than action
  • You are disempowered, but can make clever use of your environment and items

Animal Well will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2023.
