UNTIES and 3rd Eye Project have announced that 3rd Eye will release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
This “visually-striking and horrific” point-and-click adventure is set in the Touhou Project universe and stars Koishi Komeiji, a quirky child with no friends but an incredible gift.
When her 3rd eye awakens, she can see “lingering traces of the past” as well as to glimpse inside people’s hearts – brought to life as “surreal, hand-drawn visual manifestations.”
That will see you explore the mysterious world and souls of those around Koishi, as you use the 3rd eye to discover items and clues. Overuse the 3rd eye and it will become bloodshot, restarting the level. So, you will need to use it sparingly.
With a narrative that explores universal themes of loneliness and isolation across six chapters, more than 10 characters, a 20,000-word script, and three possible endings to reach, you must help Koishi learn to ease her solitude.
“3rd Eye takes a visual approach to the loneliness we all feel at some point in our lives and the ways we learn to connect with others,” explains UNTIES G&R representative Akinari Itoh.
“The talented development team at 3rd Eye Project have given life to these common struggles through compelling illustrations, revealed through gameplay and depicting the woes we all face.”
3rd Eye will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q4 2019.
