Pine Studio has announced that The Academy: The First Riddle will soon see release on Nintendo Switch.

You play as Sam in this 20-hour puzzle adventure, for which the developer took inspiration from Harry Potter and Professor Layton,.

A freshman at the famed but mysterious Academy, you will be challenged to solve 200 puzzles and riddles across the campus as you work to uncover the secrets surrounding the school.

“We’re huge fans of the Professor Layton series and its colourful puzzles,” explains Pine Studio’s Boris Barbir. “We wanted to make a game that would allow players on all platforms to experience that thrill of getting a puzzle just right.

“We are big fans of Harry Potter, so the school is greatly inspired by Hogwarts, but it’s also inspired by the architecture of our city, Zagreb. Early on in development, it became clear that what we actually set off to achieve was to capture the essence of being a kid – the feeling that adventure lies around every corner.”

The Academy: The First Riddle will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2020.
