Nintendo Switch will be receiving a brand new choice-driven point-and-click adventure next year thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign.
Saint Kotar, a "modern 2.5D story-driven" take on the genre, generated a total of $58,000 (or 129% of its funding goal) to secure a release on Switch. It's all set within a hand-painted world plagued by murders and strange goings-on and looks like it could be a good fit for psychological horror fans.
In Saint Kotar you follow the frightening tale of Benedek Dohnany and Nikolay Kalyakin as they try to find the truth behind a macabre series of murders and strange phenomena, allegedly related to devil worship and witchcraft.
Play with two fascinating characters to unravel a captivating and branching story set in the small rural town of Sveti Kotar. Your actions and words affect the storylines you experience and the characters you meet in this dark place tormented by agony and sorrow.
