Publisher Soedesco has announced that Monstrum, a survival horror game which has been reviewed well on Steam, is coming to Switch on 22nd May.

Combining deadly AI-driven predators, permadeath and a procedurally generated world, Monstrum aims to create "a truly re-playable horror experience". As we mentioned above, users have been singing its praises on Steam since it launched there back in 2015, giving it a 'very positive' rating.

It sounds like a pretty tense affair; a sneaky combo of permadeath and no save points means that once you're killed, you'll have to start from scratch. Here's an official description and feature list:

Stranded on an abandoned cargo ship, you find yourself hunted by one of Monstrum’s terrifying predators; each with their own strategy, abilities, and weaknesses. You’ll have to use your wits to outsmart your pursuer within the ship’s procedurally generated environment as you search for an escape. Death is permanent; get killed and you'll be starting all over again. Can you survive Monstrum?

● Survive a changing environment and monster with each new game
● Use whatever you can find to outwit the monsters and escape the ship
● Hide, distract, and run, but be careful not to fall into the numerous traps
● Death is permanent. Try to stay alive or you’ll have to start all over again

As mentioned earlier in the week, the physical edition of this game - and any other upcoming releases from Soedesco - are being temporarily put on hold due to the global crisis. As such, the game will only be available digitally at first.
