RedDeer Games has announced that the gloomy, comic book-inspired The Blind Prophet will be making its way over to the Switch eShop on 26th May.
The game will see you take on the role of Apostle Bartholomeus, as you venture into the grimy streets of Rotbork to purge the city and its inhabitants of the Great Evil.
All of this is achieved by the point-and-click gameplay, which will have you searching through several different hand-drawn landscapes, solving puzzles and completing mini-games to continue the story. This is captured through a comic book visual style, which makes the gloomy streets and dark themes appear as if they are straight from the pages of a Hellboy issue.
Developed by Ars Goetia games, The Blind Prophet released on Steam back in 2020 and has since racked up a number of very positive reviews.
For a little more information about the game itself and a look at some screenshots, check out the following from RedDeer:

"has to be in the running for best character name of the year"
That is the name of a real historical figure - Saint Bartholomew - one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus.
If they do their usual RedDeerGames huge launch sale, I'm definitely interested.
