Posted on August 7, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop


Baltoro Games and Arbitrary Metric have set a release date for the Switch version of Paratopic. The retro-inspired first-person horror game launches as an eShop download on August 21.

Here’s an overview of Paratopic, along with a trailer:

Playable both in TV and handheld mode, experience a short-story masterpiece and enjoy the story anywhere. Take the horror with you.

Paratopic, an experimental first-person horror game named by Rock, Paper, Shotgun as one of the best games of 2018, and by FACT mag as having one of the top 10 soundtracks of the year now will be available for new audiences.

Cutting between numerous detailed and varied vignettes, unravel how the stories of three individual characters intersect. Explore the detritus of forbidden industry, kill, drive through the night, find yourself in conversation with some very off-kilter individuals.

A leisurely playthrough should take forty five minutes give or take, with plenty more to discover in the detailed, grimey low polygon environments. Just ideal for the pocket, isn’t it?

Over an hour of gorgeous dark ambient music is used to create our subtly dynamic soundscape. An anachronistic blend of modern and outdated production as glitches and textural pads meet synthesis & sampling akin to 1990s Unreal Engine soundtracks.
