Another title that was revealed in the Devolver Digital Direct yesterday – and is coming to Nintendo Switch – is Olija. This intriguing indie platforming-puzzler game from Skeleton Crew hasn’t been given a release window yet, but it certainly looks great from the trailer. Check out the overview of Olija below, and as always, make sure to give the trailer a watch which has also been included.
Olija is a game about Faraday’s quest, a man shipwrecked then trapped in the mysterious country of Terraphage. Armed with a legendary harpoon, he and other castaways try to leave this hostile country to return to their homelands.
Through adventurous exploration, narration and razor sharp combat, the player will discover a strange world and its inhabitants, including Olija, an enigmatic lady that Faraday finds himself bound to over time. Inspired by swashbuckling tales and cinematic adventure games, Olija is a story about facing the unknown in adversity.
