Following its well-known release on PC previously this year.
Developer Polygon Treehouse’s well-known “dark and modern fairy tale” Röki is concerning Switch this Thursday, 15th October.
Röki follows the experiences of lead character Tove as she starts a mission, which takes her throughout a beautifully stylised performance of the Scandinavian wilderness, to conserve her household.
In more useful terms, that manifests as a point-and-click-ish mix of narrative-driven expedition and perplexing, including a little curio gathering and map illustration for great step, as Tove traverses her cold homeland experiencing long-forgotten beasts.
“It’s about household,” discussed GamingOverpowered’s Christian Donlan in his Recommended evaluation of the PC variation previously this year, “still woozy from a destructive loss that none can correctly deal with, and it has to do with the surrounding landscape, which is shimmering with ice and frost and abundant with weird beings and dark histories.”
“To step into this game is to be small and lost in the woods, and to be determined in that bright and undiminished way that characters in the best children’s books are,” he continued. “I was gently moved for a few hours and then I was clobbered, gorgeously, over the head. This game hurts. I love it.” Those interested in experiencing Roki’s weird magic on their own on Switch can choose it up for £17.99 when it comes to the eShop this Thursday, 15th October.
