Top Hat Studios and Suzaku have revealed that Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story will release on Nintendo Switch.
The Kickstarter-backed 2.5D game will mix cyberpunk themes with traditional Cantonese folklore, and seeks “to return the horror genre to its roots.” That will return to the slow, fearful creep of dread rather than relying on over-the-top action and jump scares.
“After lots of drafting, feedback, and help from an established publisher and fellow developers, I think I found a solid look and feel, and most importantly, I feel was finally able to craft something unique and exciting,” explains Suzaku lead developer and owner Benjamin Widdowson.
With inspiration taken from Clock Tower and Fatal Frame, Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is set in 2083 Neo Hong Kong.
After a young woman called Mei-Lin Mak is dragged into a maelstrom of supernatural horror, peering into the century-old mystery will force her to question her perception of reality and her trust of her cybernetic eyes.
The ruins of Chong Sing Apartments hide a bloody mystery that is illuminated by both the traditions of Chinese folklore and the innovations of the industrial future.
To escape her nightmare, Mei-Lin must explore this complex – working to piece together the stories of 14 lost souls to discover the truth behind her own family curse.
Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
