Mango Protocol has announced that its “puzzlevania” mystery adventure CLeM will release on Nintendo Switch.
This is the next quirky game from the developer behind MechaNika, Colossus Down and Agatha Knife.
After a voice wakes you and gives you a purpose, to achieve it you are given a notebook with mysterious entries to complete and are left to explore an entire house. And then you wake up, in a dark room that is cold and damp. Unsure whether you slept there last night, seeing as your head is cloudy, swollen and has something inside it.
Unzipping the nape of your neck, you take out a notebook with the word CLeM on the cover – opening it to find that some pages have entries on them, which look like notes on insects and other bugs. There are drawings and symbols that look familiar but you can’t work out why, and, after studying them, you hear it once more… “Hey you, wake up and bring me beauty.”
The developer has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Delve into this puzzlevania mystery adventure with a twisted story to unravel and countless challenges to overcome.
- Explore an apparently abandoned house accompanied only by an obscure voice and a notebook full of notes and drawings on alchemy, insects and other creepy-crawlies.
- Craft magic toys to unveil hidden secrets, access unreachable spots and reclaim items from the past.
- Choose your fate in this dark story of manipulation, submission, pride and redemption.
CLeM will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
