Horror Anthology Stories Untold Is Coming To Nintendo Switch Very Soon
Includes the excellent text adventure The House Abandon.
Stories Untold is coming to Switch next week, bringing No Code's horror anthology to a console for the first time. The game's release is right around the corner--it'll be available on the eShop on January 16.
The game collects four short horror experiences in one package, each of which involves interacting with strange in-game objects and narratives that make inventive use of the game's mechanics.
The original release was designed specifically with a keyboard in mind, and required a lot of typing. The controls have been reworked for Switch, so you can play the game using Joy-Con without issue. The trailer below shows a simplified control system for The House Abandon, the game's excellent opening text adventure.
GameSpot gave the game a 7/10 in its original review, published in 2017. In my review, I praised the first three of four parts of the anthology, calling the game a "unique package with a strong sense of identity, one that finds a new, exciting way to weaponize nostalgia."
No Code followed up Stories Untold with Observation, an excellent horror adventure set on an abandoned space station.
