With the increasingly long and dark nights (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) the prospect of going on a relaxing walk is a little less appealing right now. If seeking a chilled and contemplative few hours of gaming 'walking simulators' can be the way to go, then, and another is arriving on the Switch eShop this week.
Drizzlepath: Deja Vu arrives on 24th November priced at $6.99USD / €6.99, with a 20% launch discount also on the cards. It's a game from Tonguç Bodur, a prolific developer that focuses on this genre and storytelling. It's been quite well received on Steam, and below is part of the official description.
A vast and mysterious world lies before you, one that hides the truth of your existence and echoes the memory of past lives. As the tenth game created by Tonguç Bodur, Drizzlepath: Deja Vu is a reimagining of his first creation, a standalone experience accessible by any kind of player.
In Drizzlepath: Deja Vu, you’ll take the role of a nameless man climbing towards a mountaintop in search of answers. Witness events as you explore, each gradually adding to the larger existential narrative. Ponder the enigmatic and cyclical nature of memory through abstract storytelling and beautifully detailed environments, punctuated by ominous imagery that’s more mysterious than it is frightening, a beacon to guide you forward.
It's very much a game that's intended to be experienced for its atmosphere, with a likely playtime of 1-2 hours.
Is this the sort of experience you fancy trying out on Switch?
