If you're in the market for a new, thought-provoking puzzler, you'll probably want to keep an eye out for The Almost Gone.
Happy Volcano's award-winning narrative-based puzzler is headed to Switch this summer, bringing a variety of diorama-like head-scratchers along for the ride. It'll be launching on the Nintendo eShop on 25th June. Here's an official description and feature list:
Poised between life and death, isolated and alone, you must unravel the poignant truths that led to your fate. Dig beneath the beautifully rendered façades and interiors of an ordinary suburban lifestyle to discover a contemporary tale crafted by an award-winning author.
From your own home to eerily deserted streets, beautiful apartment blocks to abandoned hospitals, you must search forensically for clues and the path forwards. Each new revelation takes you one step closer to understanding, and to the people and places that surrounded you, in your all too short life.
- Experience an emotional and immersive story written by award-winning author Joost Vandecasteele
- Explore every nook and cranny of each beautifully rendered diorama
- Play through five compelling chapters, with each revealing more secrets and twists that will lead you to the truth
- From an unassuming sitting room, to a tent in a forest, from a police car in a tree to an abandoned hospital, a hauntingly different suburbia is yours to discover
It'll be available on Switch for $14.99 / 14.99€ / £13.49, with a 20% off launch price also being available for a limited time.

I haven't heard of it before that I can recall but it looks quite interesting. I'll look into it more when I have time and might pick it up.
Aight, that's my jam, sign me up, please!
@BenAV Me neither; I agree; so will I; me too. Apparently I have nothing new to add.
Looks interesting, I do enjoy a good puzzler. A search of the Apple App Store shows it's releasing there on the same day, but for $3.99. Seeing as how puzzlers usually work quite well with touchscreens, I think I'll save myself 11 bucks and play it on my iPhone instead, I just don't see the need to spend more than 3 times the price to play it on Switch.
Sounds reasonable enough. Though I know that I'd personally struggle with paying Apple any amount at all for software I could get elsewhere.
