Froach Club in collaboration with Poppy Works are behind this retro-inspired story-exploration game. After her friend Cantaloupe goes missing, melon factory employee Honeydew abandons her shift at Eglantine Industries to head to Hog Town – where melons are outlawed and corruption is rampant.
As her search begins, intertwining mysteries start to unfold. Is the Cavity Crew as dangerous as they seem? Is Kitten King responsible for Hog Town’s troubles? You will need to comb every inch of the green-tinted pixelated world to uncover the truth.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Fully Interactive Investigation: Comb every inch of Hog Town to collect clues, interrogate shady characters, and sneak through the seedy underworld, using keen observational skills and quick wit to piece together the whole picture before it’s too late.
- Mystery at Every Turn: While looking for Cantaloupe, Honeydew will encounter dozens of curious characters with unique personalities and backstories, adding additional mysteries for her to unravel along the way.
- Jazzy Lo-Fi Soundtrack: Enjoy more than 90 different electronic- and jazz-inspired tracks from composer markeryjane while exploring Hog Town and working the case.
- Gorgeous Retro-Style Graphics: The green-tinted, pixelated world of Melon Journey is filled with loving detail, a nostalgic ode to the Game Boy generation with plenty of modern twists.
Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 7th March 2023.
