I hope you’re ready for something spooky. RedDeer Games has confirmed that the dark retro adventure with a 90s PlayStation style, Boreal Tenebrae, is coming to Switch on April 8th, 2022. The game, which is steeped in a horror atmosphere, also utilizes a synthwave soundtrack to deepen the experience.

If you’d like to learn more about Boreal Tenebrae, you can check out the trailer and press release below.


In such a small town, Dusky Rivers, set in an idyllic landscape, this story begins. A technological anomaly suddenly appears.

This phenomenon bends reality and absorbs what is in its vicinity from time to time. And its first victim was your sister Sarah.


Play as Bree, the main character, Sarah’s sister, as well as her friends, and city residents.

Each of the characters looks at the town differently, has a contrasting story and diverse insights, but each of them is important in the attempt to solve the mystery of the anomaly that Sarah was accused of causing.


Explore and discover the town and its alternative, dark version. Collect and redo items, discover diary recordings to learn more about the story, and play cassette tapes.

Complete the ritual started by Sarah, save her and others from the alternate world, and discover the dark secrets of a slowly decaying town.


– Retro game stylized as classics from the 32bit PS1 era – Bizzare horror adventure with dark atmosphere, surreal elements, and gore – The contrast in the form of cartoon-retro graphics, and a dark story – Story-driven quests with multiple characters – Simple adventure game controls – Deepened figures, different points of view on the same phenomena

Boreal Tenebrae was nominated for Best Art Direction and Best Narrative at the Canadian Game Awards 2021.
