Publisher Soedesco and developer Red Martyr Entertainment have announced that their point-and-click horror game, Saint Kotar, now has a release date!

Saint Kotar was funded via Kickstarter back in 2020 and received a successful PC release last October. The Croatian-developed game also had the honour of being named Croatian Game of the Year 2021 last December. The Switch release was part of the initial Kickstarter campaign and was originally due to release last year, however, the developers needed more time to polish the game up for consoles.

Here's a brief overview of the Lovecraftian-inspired horror from Soedesco's PR:

Lovecraftian horror set in a cursed valley in Croatia
Saint Kotar is a story-driven psychological horror game with point-and-click mechanics. Players can switch between two characters, Benedek and Nikolay, and experience everything through their unique perspectives while searching for their missing relative in the occult-ridden town of Sveti Kotar.

About Saint Kotar

In this story-and-choice driven psychological horror detective game, you play as Benedek and Nikolay – two troubled godly men in search for their missing relative in an ancient God-devoted town called Sveti Kotar. Here, an unknown presence preys upon the weak and sways on devil worship and witchcraft. Evidence points to your missing relative being involved in the grisly murders and the occult, but what is the truth? Are you also to blame for what happened?

Will you put the pieces together and unravel the truth behind the town's centuries-old horrid presence? Or is madness going to be your fate?

• Solve the mystery behind your relative's involvement with the town's bizarre and morbid rituals
• Switch between two realities to get to the bottom of the town’s horrifying secrets
• Take caution as your choices will affect both story and gameplay
• Discover hidden locations and complete side tasks to uncover the whole story
