Die Gute Fabrik has confirmed a release date for their story-driven adventure game Saltsea Chronicles, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Set in a post-flood world known as Saltsea, Captain Maja’s misfit crew must recover their impounded ship and mount a rescue of their missing leader. The flooded world was betrayed by the so-called Hoarders, but no one remembers a time before the Flood.

That will see you challenged to guide your crew across islands on which you will experience strange and wonderful communities built on the ruins of the world that came before, uncover a deep conspiracy, choose where to go and with which crew members to investigate, and chart your own journey through the story.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Distinctive print-inspired art style: A unique art style inspired by risograph print techniques brings a storybook aesthetic to the fantasy-tinged world of Saltsea Chronicles, brought to life with beautiful bespoke animation.
  • Try your hand at Spoils: Spoils is a trick-taking card game from the world of Saltsea Chronicles. Play cards with each local community, but watch out – some islands have their own house rules!
  • An original soundtrack by Eli Rainsberry: IGF-nominated composer and sound artist Eli Rainsberry (No Longer Home, A Monster’s Expedition) presents a musically hybrid score and soundscape guided by the spaces and characters of Saltsea Chronicles.
  • Navigate the drama as well as the seas: Tensions between crew members are represented by Issues, small ‘relationships quests’ you can track, resolve, or, sometimes, just have to leave unsolved.

Saltsea Chronicles will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 12 October 2023.
