Polish indie developer, Draw Distance, has announced that Midnight Evil is gearing up for a spooky Switch release.
The game is a story-driven first-person horror where players take on the role of William Crinkle, a child who is being attacked by goblin-like creatures known as Urklings. These beasts love nothing more than to feast on the flesh of children, and it's up to you to make your way through a bedtime story to defeat them.
This one actually launched on Steam earlier this year with a neat little trick which lets you use a microphone to literally read the story out loud to progress. Sadly, this feature is impossible on Switch thanks to the lack of a microphone, so this version is fully voice acted throughout instead. Here's a quick description and feature list:
It's late at night while you've discovered a mysterious book that seems to have its own evil agenda. As you begin to read through it, you realize that you are not alone, the monsters are coming. The only way to free yourself from this fiendish nightmare is to keep reading and finish the book.
- A familiar Sit-And-Survive play style!
- A full spooky narrative about ancient beings!
- Fully voice acted!
- Unlockable minigames
- Charming cheesy '80s horror environment and comedic relief!
We don't have an exact Switch release date or specific pricing just yet, but we do know that it's coming in Q3 of this year. It costs £7.19 on Steam.
