2054 Games has announced that The Sundew, its retro cyberpunk adventure game, is currently in development for Switch. The title should be ready for release this summer.
Inspired by classic point-and-click adventure games from LucasArts and Wadjet Eye Games, The Sundew pays homage to those with its gameplay mechanics, style, and storytelling. Beautifully drawn pixel-art, stunning minimalistic sound design, environments brimming with atmosphere and interactivity, and a compact, thrilling tale brings this dark future to life and grounds you in a vision of humanity’s progress that is both alien and strangely familiar…
You are Anna Isobe, a cybernetically enhanced cop in a world that’s left you behind. Once a shining hope for the future, cyborgs have become taboo, replaced by drones and automata that make even your heightened abilities obsolete. Stuck in a thankless job surrounded by indifferent eyes you still have a duty to protect and serve, and that’s just what you’re going to do.
Guide Anna Isobe, a cyborg cop with a dark past, through the unravelling of a global conspiracy.
Experience a diverse cast of characters, each with their own secrets and history.
Explore Shibukawa and the remnants of the old world.
Make decisions that will change the fate of humanity, for better or worse.
The Sundew will be sold digitally for Switch via the eShop.
