Agnès Vuillaume, the one-woman developer behind studio 2054, has announced plans to release the point-and-click adventure game The Sundew on Switch. It will launch next Thursday, October 14.

The premise behind The Sundrew is that the world is on the brink after a devastating future war, and Japan is in ruins – with the exception of the Shibukawa. Anna Isobe, a cyborg, is now the only hope. You’ll play as Anna as she navigates through the megalopolis and beyond in her search for the mystery behind a growing conspiracy. The game has various locations to visit, including the backstreets of the city, far-flung isles, and the most notorious prison this side of the Steppe.
