It’s not Cyberpunk 2077, but rather Cyberpunk 2083? Taking stock of the recent trend of Cyberpunk themed games, Top Hat Studios and eastasiasoftare bringing a futuristic game to the Nintendo Switch.
Originally funded through Kickstarter in 2018, the project generated nearly ten times its $10,000 goal.
Inspired by classic adventure games and the origins of the survival horror genre, Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story celebrates the slow, cerebral creep of dread instead of relying on over-the-top action or jump scares. With careful attention to pacing, atmosphere and storytelling, this futuristic tale seamlessly blends 2.5D exploration and problem solving with suspenseful ghost encounters that act as paranormal glitches in our own reality.
In Neo Hong Kong, 2083, a young woman named Mei Lin Mak is dragged into a maelstrom of supernatural horror. As she peers into the century old mystery, Mei is forced to question her perception of reality and her trust of her cybernetic eyes. Under the neon lights of a cyberpunk cityscape, the ruins of the Chong Sing Apartments hide a bloody secret illuminated by the traditions of Chinese folklore and innovations of the industrial future. If there is any hope of escaping this nightmare, Mei Lin must explore this complex, piecing together stories of 14 lost souls and discovering the truth of her own family curse.
Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story was released on Steam back in October and arrives on the Nintendo Switch on January 7th. There are also plans to bring the game to PS4/PS Vita (Kickstarter stretch goals) as well as Xbox One.
