Focus Entertainment, Umanimation and Un Je Ne Sais Quoi have confirmed a release date for Dordogne, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.
Pitched as “a nostalgic and moving narrative experience,” you play as Mimi and must explore the precious recollections of your childhood and the time that you shared with your late grandmother.
Created with “sumptuous art direction across hand-painted, watercolour landscapes,” as the past meets the present you must confront your adult choices with your fond childhood memories to discover lost family secrets.
The publisher has outlined the game’s features, which are:
- A wholesome family story: Discover the close relationship between Mimi and her grandmother through touching and fun gameplay moments. We hope that these slices of life, from the most trivial to the most symbolic, can make you remember your own positive childhood memories.
- Explore the beautiful Dordogne region: Through the quests of young Mimi, discover the beautiful environments of Dordogne. Faithfully adapted into watercolour, they’ll immerse you in this charming French region, so dear to Mimi. Forest walks, climbing, kayaking, cave explorations… Discover these typical activities of the region.
- Puzzles and mysteries to progress in the story: While playing as Mimi in the present (as an adult) and in the past (as a child), you’ll need to be resourceful and patient to solve puzzles and mysteries left by her grandmother.
- Craft Mimi’s journal: With pictures, sounds, objects and words that Mimi collects, let your creativity flow and create Mimi’s journal, unique to each playthrough. A truly symbolic object of a high sentimental value, it reflects Mimi’s adventures and memories of Dordogne, and the connection she shares with her grandmother
Dordogne will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 13 June 2023.
