Yesterday's Nintendo Indie World showcase introduced a nice selection of brand new games, but it also provided welcome updates for one or two we'd heard about before. Falling into the latter category was the news that Liberated will release on Switch first, before any other platform.
The announcement came alongside some new footage (you can check out the brand new trailer above) and we've also got an official description of the game waiting for you below. Things go by pretty fast in these presentations, but taking a moment to look back at this one has us cautiously optimistic - could we be looking at one of 2020's most exciting indies on Switch?
Liberated is a groundbreaking new vision for the future of digital comics. Seamlessly merging the art of hand-drawn graphic novels with interactivity and side-scrolling action, this is an action-adventure game that unfolds across the pages of a comic book.
Liberated asks difficult questions about modern issues. Government surveillance, state-driven misinformation, fake news, and weaponized personal data paint the world in shades of gray. Knowing which battles are worth fighting, and where to draw the line between revolution and terrorism, has never been more paramount.
The game was originally intended to release in 2019, but the developers say that pushing it back to 2020 will give them "more precious time and space to refine the experience and perfect its message".
