Launching this December on Nintendo Switch is Simulacra, a found-phone horror game that's sure to give you the chills this winter.
A spiritual successor to Sara Is Missing, this follow-up title has players discovering the lost phone of a woman called Anna. On the phone, you see a desperate cry for help in the form of a video message and the phone behaves strangely as you dive deeper to investigate. You'll need to check out texts and emails and find clues in her photo gallery to find her before it's too late.
As you can tell from the video above, this is a full-motion video title, adding to the modern and believable horror vibes presented throughout. The game has received 'overwhelmingly positive' reviews on Steam since its launch in 2017, and the Switch version is said to have been revamped with full controller and touchscreen support.
Here's a feature list:
• Explore a fully realised world through the lens of a mobile phone.
• An expansive narrative with hours of gameplay that leads to 5 possible endings.
• A unique gameplay experience within a dating app, a social media app, a web browser app and more.
• Filmed with live actors and an extensive VO cast.
• Solve the recurring image and text decryption puzzles to learn more about Anna’s story.
The game will be available on Switch on 3rd December.
