The Astronauts has announced that The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is now available on Nintendo Switch.
This first-person story-driven mystery game is focused on exploration and discovery, in which you play as occult-minded detective Paul Prospero.
After receiving a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter, Paul realizes that the boy is in grave danger and travels to his home in Red Creek Valley.
However, things are even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which, as Paul soon comes to understand, might not be the only local murder worth looking into.
“It’s always exciting to do something for the first time, so we can’t wait to hear from the players,” explains The Astronauts co-founder Adrian Chmielarz.
“Switch is a completely different platform from the previous Nintendo consoles and it seems to get along well with The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Never before has touring Red Creek Valley under a blanket been so comfortable. And unsettling.”
The Astronauts lead tech artist Andrzej Poznanski adds: “Moving to Unreal Engine’s new version was a challenge and many parts of the codes were written from the scratch, but it was worth it. [The] nice thing about Unreal Engine 4 is how it can scale, so the engine works great on Nintendo Switch.”
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide priced at £17.99 ($19.99).
