Baltoro Games is partnering with Arbitrary Metric to bring the retro-inspired first-person horror game Paratopic to Switch, the company announced today. We’ll be seeing it on the eShop before the end of 2020.

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 An anachronistic blend of modern and outdated production as glitches and textural pads meet synthesis & sampling akin to 1990s Unreal Engine soundtracks.

More information regarding the Switch version of Paratopic, including a final release date, will follow in the future.
