ARTE and La Belle Games have announced that The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature will release on Nintendo Switch.
This story-driven adventure game returns to the roots of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein. The experience stars “a creature born neither good nor evil,” as it travels across Europe searching for its origin while learning about humanity.
The developer promises an “emotional and challenging” journey, in which beauty and kindness are soon followed by darkness, fear, and hate.
Your decisions will change the landscape and soundtrack throughout the game, changing the watercolour environments from light and colourful to dark and moody.
“We wanted to bring the iconic scenes of the novel to life in The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature, seeing every level as an evolving painting inspired by the romantic era,” explains La Belle Games producer Cédric Bache.
“The book isn’t about the monster that we know from popular culture, but about what it means to be human. When a child’s soul is part of an adult body, and that child doesn’t understand the way the world works.”
The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q1 2020.
