Publisher and co-producer ARTE and indie developer La Belle Games announced that their story driven adventure game The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature is coming to PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature goes back to the roots of Mary Shelley’s legendary novel, Frankenstein, and invites players to discover a being quite different from the pop culture icon: Starring a creature born neither good nor evil traveling through Europe in a search to find its origins and to learn about humanity. This journey is emotional and challenging for both the creature and the player as beauty and kindness are often followed by darkness, fear and hate.
Depending on the decisions made by the player, the landscape and the soundtrack evolve throughout the game. The handcrafted watercolor environments, three years in the making, change from light and colorful to dark and moody, underlining the emotional atmosphere of the game.
We wanted to bring the iconic scenes of the novel to life in The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature, seeing every level as an evolving painting inspired by the romantic era. The book isn’t about the monster that we know from popular culture, but about what it means to be human. When a child’s soul is part of an adult body, and that child doesn’t understand the way the world works.
The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature will launch on the 31st of October on Steam for PC. The game will release on mobile devices in November, and Nintendo Switch in Q1 2020.
