PQube, Dual Effect and Abstract Digital Works have confirmed a release date for Tormented Souls, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.

This “modern take on the fixed-perspective adventure” takes inspiration from survival horror classics from Resident Evil to Silent Hill.

After Caroline Walker is lured to the small town of Winterlake by fate – or perhaps something far more sinister – she must fight for her life, for answers and to escape from the decrepit hell that she explores.

While investigating the disappearance of twin girls, something terrible happens to Caroline and she wakes in the dead of night, naked in a bathtub and hooked up to some worn-out medical equipment.

Now she must explore the halls of an abandoned mansion turned hospital, combining items to solve puzzles and using every resource available to her to uncover the secrets behind the building and its grounds.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Welcome To Winterlake: Led to the small, isolated town of Winterlake, something terrible happens to Caroline Walker. Waking in the dead of night, naked and alone, hooked up to decrepit medical equipment, Caroline must fight for her life as she explores the halls of the abandoned mansion. As the previous inhabitants run amok, you must scavenge essential resources and tools to decipher clues and create a variety of weapons to protect yourself from the darkness within.
  • Keep Your Wits About You: Nothing is quite as it seems in Winterlake. Cleverly combine items and scour your surroundings for clues as you face cryptic and unusual puzzles through-out the grounds of the mansion. Mirrors provide a gateway to another place and time – investigate even the seemingly mundane to discover ways to manipulate the very fabric of reality and seek your escape.
  • You Are Never Alone In The Dark: The mansion may seem desolate and abandoned, but the deeper you venture, the more overwhelming the horrors within become. From terrifying, wheelchair-bound atrocities to vile disembowelled crawlers prowling the halls, these tormented medical monsters aren’t the only threats that Caroline must face. There are also darker threats at play – quite literally. Early on, you are warned not to let the shadows embrace you…

Tormented Souls will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 14th April 2022.
