During today’s Indie World Showcase, the final release date was announced for A Highland Song. The game is confirmed to launch on December 5, 2023.
As a reminder, here’s what to expect:
Moira McKinnon has never seen the sea. For fifteen years she’s lived with her mum in a small house on the edge of the Scottish Highlands—then one day she receives a letter from her Uncle Hamish urging her to come to the coast. If she can reach his lighthouse in time, a wonderful surprise will be waiting… And so, Moira runs away. The hills are full of secrets and stories, but what you find will depend on where you go. The narrative is not branching but weaving; a mesh of history, mythology and family secrets. What truths will you discover?
In the Highlands, every peak has a story to tell and every valley echoes with song. Giants sleep, ghosts sing, crows carry messages, and eagles lift the dead. But the Highlands’ crags are unforgiving and its summits are cold—Moira’s trek will not be easy. Can you help her find a way across this winding wilderness in time?
- Moira McKinnon is running away. To reach the sea, Moira must first cross the Scottish Highlands—a wilderness of paths, peaks, shortcuts, dangers, and song.
- Platforming: Climb peaks to orient yourself and plan your next steps. Spelunk caves, scale cliffs, jump from rock to rock and slide down scree slopes as you make your way forward.
- Survival: Wind, rain, cold and hunger are your enemies. Moira is no superhero, and the Highlands are not to be underestimated. Shelter to survive.
- Navigation: Collect and position 100 map fragments to discover faster routes. The hills crisscrossed with paths: well-trodden, others hidden away.
- Narrative: Learn the stories and the secrets of the hills, which are filled with lost things, echoes, and memories.
- Rhythm runs: Skip and jump through the valleys to the incredible music of TALISK and Fourth Moon. The landscape itself forms itself around the shape of the music.
- Replay: Get ready to make the journey more than once, because a single trip isn’t nearly enough to discover the Highlands’ deepest secrets.
