Triple-I Games - a development studio made up of veterans from BioWare, ArenaNet, and Sucker Punch - is bringing a new action-adventure game to Switch called Hindsight 20/20.
The game is a single-player affair with morality-based decisions seemingly at its core. These decisions you make will have long-lasting repercussions and the game deals with some pretty serious topics; it's said to explore "themes of morality at times of crisis, segregation, regret, peace, and self-criticism", with the press release talking of a scene where a character is considering suicide as just one example.
Here's some PR:
The peaceful town of Champaner holds life sacred above all else. A calamitous virus capable of turning people into blood-thirsty beasts called Raakshasas threatens Champaner’s harmonious ways. In response, King Marcos orders the kidnapping and execution of all Raakshasas including Seth, the leader of the beasts. Seth flees and forms a rival town called Gibsonia, a safe haven for anyone who has or could turn into a Raakshasa. He then opens a powerful rift over Champaner, capable of destroying the kingdom at any time.
At the center of this developing war is a fated one-armed man named Jehan who lived in Champaner, until his father was killed. Jehan’s malleability and freedom of choice form the crux of Hindsight 20/20. Will he uphold the values of his hometown by avoiding bloodshed? Or will the murder of his father fuel him with a rage that can only be quelled with the death of those responsible? Perhaps there is a middle ground, where violence justifies a peaceful end. Survive in a world of grey by deciding who Jehan really is and what motivates him.
Also mentioned in the press release are environmental puzzles, side quests, and a "fantastical world that merges technology and magic". The stylised aesthetic is also said to be inspired by classic Zelda games, just in case you needed any more persuading to keep this one on your radar.
The game is scheduled for a 2020 release (we see what they did there) on Nintendo Switch, as well as other major platforms. We'll make sure to keep an eye out for more news on this one going forward.
