Update [Wed 25th Nov, 2020 00:15 GMT]: It seems the action-adventure Olija will no longer be released this year. Skeleton Crew and Devolver Digital have now confirmed it’ll wash up on the Switch in 2021. Above is an updated trailer.
Original article [Sun 12th Jul, 2020 08:45 BST]: Apart from Carrion, one other Switch game showcased during Devolver Digital’s recent broadcast was the action-adventure title Olija. It’s developed by the Kyoto-based team Skeleton Crew and is arriving at some point this Fall.
The game is focused on Faraday – a man who is shipwrecked in the mysterious country of Terraphage with other castaways. He’s armed with a legendary harpoon and must now attempt to escape this hostile location so he can return to his homeland.
The title of the game is named after an enigmatic lady that Faraday finds himself bound to over time, and the game is inspired by “swashbuckling tales and cinematic adventure games” of the past. Here are some details and screens, courtesy of Steam:
– Explore a mysterious and handcrafted world inspired by sailor’s legends and Asian fantasy.
– Wield the Harpoon of legend and rethink movement through platforming, puzzle and combat.
– Rescue fellow castaways and meet curious characters to learn more about Terraphage and the enigmatic Olija.
– Beautiful melancholic soundtrack inspired by Flamenco, lo-fi and traditional Japanese music.
– Craft magic hats!
