Glob Games Studio has announced that MicroMan is in development for Nintendo Switch.
This single-player experience will see you play as a laboratory worker who, after an unfortunate incident, tumbles into an experimental reduction capsule and is shrunk to the size of a small insect.
In an experience that will look to combine adventure, action and survival, you must discover a way for him to return to his normal size.
“When we were young, from time to time most of us thought about already becoming big and adult. But the reverse situation could also be fascinating,” explains Glob Games Studio vice president Karol Marcinkowski.
“This theme was employed as early as around 200 years ago by Jonathan Swift in Gulliver’s Travels, where the main protagonist found himself in the land of giants. In more modern times, it has appeared in the Ant-Man comic books or the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movie. MicroMan is obviously inspired by these works, among others, but at the same time it will be something quite new and unique in the gaming industry.”
Marcinkowski adds: “Our new game will allow you to look at the human world from a completely fresh perspective. MicroMan will have to face adversities that the average person would not even think of.
“We will provide the players with a surprising, dynamic and – at the same time – very multifaceted adventure. We will be fighting rats, running away from a hedgehog, looking for a way to get on the bus or trying to avoid getting crushed by human feet. And these are just some of the things MicroMan will offer. All this will be wrapped in stylish audio and visuals and sprinkled with a good dose of good humour.”
MicroMan will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
