Daedalic Entertainment has announced that their futuristic thriller State of Mind will release on Nintendo Switch, a game that will delve into transhumanism.
Exploring themes of separation, disjuncture and reunification, players will wander a world torn between a dystopian material reality and a utopian virtual future. With multiple playable characters and two separate game worlds, this third-person adventure will explore the existential drama that develops in a society on the brink of post-material existence.
You are Richard Nolan, a father and journalist born in Berlin, who inadvertently discovers that he, his wife and son have been subjects to mind uploads. Richard’s upload has gone wrong, and, as a result, he still lives in real-life reality but an incomplete second version of himself exists in a secret Virtual Reality project.
Realising his predicament, Richard sets out on a dangerous search for salvation as he looks to reunite with his family and his own being. It will soon dawn on him on that journey that it isn’t only about him, but the very future of mankind.
“We’re so excited to announce that State Of Mind will not only appear for PC, Xbox One and PS4 consoles later this year, but is also planned for the latest Nintendo console!” the developer shared on Facebook.
State of Mind will release on Nintendo Switch in 2017.
