Publisher Forever Entertainment and developer Different Tales today announced that Wanderlust Travel Stories is coming to Switch. It’ll be out on the eShop sometime in February, though a specific date hasn’t been shared just yet.
Here’s an overview of Wanderlust Travel Stories, along with a trailer:
In a bar, on the world’s most remote island, a group of strangers share their stories. Step into their shoes and experience travel from distinct perspectives. This collection of playable novels is inspired by real events and places – but the course of each journey depends on your choices.
A bridge between literature and gaming
Wanderlust Travel Stories is a book that you shape. If you’re seeking something a little bit different it is for you – and if you can read this, you have all you need to get started.
An anthology of travel stories
Four long stories and five short ones, each written by its own team of authors. Every journey offers a unique playstyle as you experience travel through the eyes of distinct individuals. Like an idealistic student, a jaded reporter, or a man who’s simply a terrible planner.
Authentic, grounded and well researched
Inspired by true stories and set in real places. Travel to the mysterious statues of Rapa Nui, bustling streets of Bangkok, pristine expanses of the Antarctic, grasslands of the Serengeti, and more. Dive into tales created by passionate travelers and experienced reporters, see the world they saw throughout their journeys.
Emotions color perception
Your choices shape the characters’ mood. This, in turn, changes how you see the world. All emotions are valid: happiness or enthusiasm aren’t everything, feeling sad or fatigued is perfectly natural.
Tasteful aesthetic, bespoke photography, and immersive soundscapes set the tone. Just enough to stir your own memories or feed the imagination.
Introducing Slow Gaming
Like a peaceful afternoon with a cup of tea and a novel, it’s a slow-paced and meditative experience. You don’t have to rush or fight, you can take in every moment at your own pace. If this is what you seek, check out our Slow Gaming Manifesto.
