Launching on Switch later this month is Unforeseen Incidents, a point-and-click adventure game from the team behind The Longing.

Available on Steam for some time now, the game will be bringing its hand-painted, mystery-filled world to Nintendo's platform on 27th January. You'll be joining protagonist Harper Pendrell to experience a challenging investigation that, judging by the new trailer above, comes with a nice chunk of humour on the side. Let us set the scene:

Unforeseen Incidents is a classical style interactive mystery set in a beautifully hand-painted world. When small-town handyman Harper Pendrell meets a dying woman in the street, he unwittingly stumbles into a diabolical conspiracy – a mystery only he can solve.

An unknown disease is spreading across the country, and between them a scientist, a reporter and a reclusive artist hold the key to stopping it. A perilous journey awaits, and every step brings Harper closer to a cabal of dangerous fanatics. Before he knows it, he finds himself in a fight for the future of humankind armed only with his trusty multi-tool.

And that's not all! Here's a feature list:
