Return Of The Obra Dinn IMG

One award-winning game that didn't receive quite as much attention as other releases last year was the first-person monochromatic puzzle title, Return of the Obra Dinn. Following its recent success at the BAFTA Awards, fans are now wondering if the computer game will sail onto the Switch anytime soon.

Speaking to Metro, the game's creator Lucas Pope said he had no specific details to share about a potential Switch port right now and hadn't really worked out anything "solid" just yet.

“A lot of people are asking for it. Actually the first response when I released it for desktops was, ‘When is it coming to Switch?’ So the writing is on the wall on that I guess. I haven’t figured anything out yet solid for it yet though.”

Here's the backstory, courtesy of the game's Steam page:

In 1802, the merchant ship Obra Dinn set out from London for the Orient with over 200 tons of trade goods. Six months later it hadn't met its rendezvous point at the Cape of Good Hope and was declared lost at sea.

Early this morning of October 14th, 1807, the Obra Dinn drifted into port at Falmouth with damaged sails and no visible crew. As insurance investigator for the East India Company's London Office, dispatch immediately to Falmouth, find means to board the ship, and prepare an assessment of damages.
