Japanese company Gift Ten Industry is releasing a game on Switch that requires a pen and paper to play.

The game has a tentative title of Madolica and will launch on the eShop in Japan some time this summer, priced at 1,500 Yen.

The objective of the game is to escape from a monster-filled mansion within set time limit, and up to four players can take part. You can either print off the floor plan of the building or purchase pre-printed plans from the game's website; you'll need to use these to plot your escape in-game.

Given the portable nature of Switch - and the surprising popularity of table top gaming these days - this is a crazy idea that actually makes a lot of sense. There's no word on a western release, but we'd hope this makes its way out of Japan somehow.
