Lorelei and The Laser Eyes was announced for Switch over a year ago, and it’s slated to arrive in 2024. Ever since the game’s reveal, the devs at Simogo have been hard at work crafting the experience…and trying to figure out what the hell it is.

In an interview with Engadget, we learn that the dev team started of Lorelei and The Laser Eyes’ development with the game’s name. Usually a name comes later in development after ideas have already been fleshed out. With this title, the name was the starting place for the game itself.

“There wasn’t a single a-ha moment. We had the title which we really liked, and from there we have been trying to figure out what laser eyes are.

The project has been transformative to make, which reflects in its themes. It’s not a singular concept, it’s rather more of a collection of ideas over a long time. Thematically, there are a lot of ideas about stories within stories, stories reflecting each other, memories, dreams and parallel events and worlds.”
