Saturnalia: A new Survival Horror is coming to Nintendo Switch

With October approaching, you are of course thinking of Christmas Halloween, the perfect opportunity to get into horror games. Expected on Nintendo Switch and competing media,  Saturnalia is a Survival Horror which will arrive on October 27, 2022 . We let you discover its trailer below.

Honorable Mention for the Seamus McNally Grand Prix at the 2022 Independent Games Festival and nominated for the Grand Prix at the A MAZE. and IndieCade Awards 2021, Saturnalia is a kaleidoscopic adventure inspired in equal parts by authentic Sardinian folklore and the classics of Italian giallo horror cinema. The story involves a mysterious centuries-old ritual that takes place every year on the night of the winter solstice in the Italian village of Gravoi. Each of the game's four playable characters must use their unique abilities and face personal revelations in order to unravel the secrets that haunt the town and ultimately escape their fate.

Saturnalia invites players into a daring neon-folk nightmare:

  • Look for clues in a maze-like village with no landmarks or compass to guide your steps.
  • Explore the ever-changing town of Gravoi, using matches to ward off the darkness.
  • Running and stealth are your only options, as you cannot fight the creature chasing you.
  • Immerse yourself in Saturnalia's stop-motion animation and expressionist art style for an eerily beautiful atmosphere that's as mesmerizing as it is spooky.
  • Control your destiny through non-linear progression and dynamic, adaptive storytelling, with unique endgames that depend on player choices.
