Publisher Wales Interactive has shared release dates for two upcoming titles heading to Switch. Stealth survival horror game Maid of Sker will be launching on 26th November, while interactive rom-com Five Dates arrives one week earlier on the 17th.
If you're wanting to learn more about these two games, we have gameplay trailers and official descriptions for you below. Dive in:
Maid of Sker
Maid of Sker is a first-person survival horror, set in a remote hotel with a gory and macabre history from British folklore. Armed with only a defensive sound device, you’ll utilise stealth tactics to avoid death amongst a cult of sound-based AI enemies. Set in 1898 and inspired by the haunting Welsh tale of Elisabeth Williams, this is a story of a family empire driven by torture, slavery, piracy and a supernatural mystery that suffocates the grounds of the hotel.
Created and developed by Wales Interactive with a plot crafted by the writing talent and designers behind the likes of SOMA, Don’t Knock Twice and Battlefield 1.
Five Dates is an interactive rom-com about the unpredictable world of digital dating. With five potential female matches, Vinny explores whether compatibility, chemistry and connection is still possible in a world where physical touch is no longer an option.
Vinny, a millennial from London, joins a dating app for the first time while living in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic. With five potential female matches, Vinny must pluck up courage to video date with wildly different personalities, starring Mandip Gill (Doctor Who) and Georgia Hirst (Vikings).
The viewer’s choices will define Vinny’s interactions with each date and their interest in seeing him again. Amidst a branching, multi-directional chain of conversation topics and deep-dive questions, Vinny is faced with digital game dates, awkward scenarios and unexpected truths.
Either of these taking your fancy? Feel free to share your thoughts on each game in the comments below, and let us know whether or not you plan on picking them up.
The writers behind SOMA? OK, that game was fantastic. In my opinion, way more polished than Amnesia, and the story was one of the greatest parts. You've sold me.
Trying to not be negative about that second 'game'.
Not sure about these games
They also made don't know twice and I completed it with in 30 minutes and it was boring
Think will have to wait and see the review for maid of sker
The other I have no interest in
5 Dates looks like a super creepy simulacrum of human popularity designed for people without reciprocal emotions who seek to immerse themselves in a feeling of belonging.
I’m sure it will be horribly panned by critics but also fervently enjoyed in secret.
As someone who spends most of my game time butchering with a sword or shooting with a gun, I’m probably throwing stones inside of a glass house.
So a date is eating by yourself and face timing someone now? And this is the kind of dream date we need to simulate with a switch because it's something that is going to be interesting?
Dating with simulated humans is the COVIDsafe™ way to date!
At least until our ever-loving and totes honest governments impart their sage wisdom on socially-distant lovemaking (also called the Nada Sutra).
