Text-Based Adventure Game Subsurface Circular Hits Nintendo Switch Next Month
Bithell Games has announced that Subsurface Circular will release on Nintendo Switch, their acclaimed text-based sci-fi adventure game that will see you investigate a series of disappearances among the city’s robotic working class.
This is the first title in the “Bithell Shorts” series and is meant to be experienced as a single-session story.
The game is a text-based adventure with a graphical twist in which players collect words and phrases, to then use them in dialogue puzzles to uncover the world’s secrets and ultimately determine its fate.
“Nintendo Switch is an ideal platform for players to experience Subsurface Circular, a game perfectly suited to playing on an actual train,” shared Mike Bithell, founder of Bithell Games. “Nintendo has displayed a commitment to the success of independent gaming on Nintendo Switch, and we’re thrilled to join their expanding library of games.”
With the Subsurface Circular having been well received on Steam and the App Store for iPad, the Nintendo Switch port has been developed in partnership with developer Ant Workshop – a name that some may know already from playing Binaries on the portable home console.
“We have admired Mike’s work for a long time, and were thrilled at the opportunity to team up with Bithell Games to adapt the game onto Nintendo Switch,” explains Anthony Gowland, founder of Ant Workshop. “We have a lot of love for the Switch at Ant Workshop, and wanted to make the most of the platform to bring Subsurface Circular’s thoughtful story to a new audience.”
Subsurface Circular will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on March 1st, priced at £4.79 ($5.99).
