I've seen stranger things than this
Unusual Findings was announced for Switch at the start of the year, and now we have an official release date. You can look forward to giving this game a go on October 12th, 2022, and check out the new release date trailer above.
Unusual Findings is a classic point-and-click adventure game set in the 80s in a world full of synthwave, 8-tracks, arcades and many other references to cinematic classics of the era where players will have to explore, investigate and work to stop an alien invasion and save the world.
It’s the 80s and Christmas is coming. Vinny, Nick and Tony are young and their new cable signal descrambler just arrived. While trying to decrypt a pay per view adult channel, they pick up the distress signal of an alien spaceship crash-landing in the woods near their town. Things only get weirder as they realise that the towering alien is killing specific members of their community!
Immerse yourself into a world that pays homage to 80s classics such as The Goonies, Monster Squad, Terminator, Aliens and The Lost Boys amongst many others, and gameplay that combines the mechanics of a classic point and click adventure such as “Full throttle”, but with it’s own unique twist and much more. A world that is designed to ooze nostalgia from every pore, check the Video Buster Store out for clues, challenge other kids at the Laser Llamas Arcades, learn a new trick at the Emerald Sword comic store, try to get along with the Lost Boys with their punk aesthetic in their hideout, or perhaps even dare to ask The Bull -the quintessential 80s action hero- for some help!
Each decision you take directly affects the relationship between the three friends as well as affecting the entire story, changing the way they solve each puzzle, how they visit each location, the answers that they find along the way, and much more. Uncover the hidden truth behind the alien invasion… well sort of. Why choose Earth? Why kill the locals? How can the three boys stop the invasion? Will they tune into the adult channel after all? The answers to these and many other questions can be found… in Unusual Findings.
