Releasing this week on Nintendo Switch in Europe and the following week in North America is Fobia, an indie puzzle-platformer taking its first leap towards a console release.
Described as "a beautiful but challenging game", Fobia follows the story of a little girl who is trying to escape her fears. It's a tricky puzzle-platformer adventure set in a mysterious world which reminds us a little of games like Limbo; you'll need to overcome various obstacles as you explore, taking on dangerous situations, enemies, and puzzles.
The eShop listing for this one notes that "anything in the game can kill you", which is a lovely thought to dwell on as you check out this feature list:
– A beautiful world where a misstep means death.
– Unique and peculiar hand drawn 2D Art-Style and 2D animation.
– A big variety of puzzles designed with different levels of difficulty.
– Atmospheric sound design.
– Two different endings.
The game will be available on 25th July in Europe and 1st August in the US, priced at £8.99 / $9.99 respectively. A 30% discount is currently available on the European eShop for those who choose to pre-purchase.
