04 MARCH 2020 - Developer Alan Edwardes is delighted to announce the launch of Estranged: The Departure on Nintendo Switch today.
The first person adventure game put players in the shoes of a lone fisherman who has found himself stranded on a strange island, shrouded in mystery.
Players will explore a rich, detailed landscape as they attempt to escape back to the mainland, encountering puzzles and enigmatic island inhabitants, unravelling a decades-old mystery along the way.
Edwardes' first person adventure game has been in development for over six years, designed as a standalone sequel to his first title Estranged: Act 1, a mod for Half-Life 2. That original mod has attracted 6,670 reviews on the Steam platform, 93% of which are positive.
Although a sequel in spirit, Estranged: The Departure is a completely self contained story which can be enjoyed independently of the original mod, with no prior experience necessary.
Estranged: The Departure expertly blends a rich first person narrative adventure with gripping action set-pieces and combat. Of the first game, PC Gamer wrote: "It's always nice to see a mod progress from humble beginnings to its own Steam product page, and Estranged is fully deserving of the achievement."
Developer Alan Edwardes said "I’m thrilled to release Estranged: The Departure on the Nintendo Switch! It has been a journey of just under 7 years of work in my spare time to get to this point, and I can’t wait for players to experience Estranged in handheld form."
Estranged: The Departure launches on Nintendo Switch today, priced £4.49 / $5.99 / €4.99.

PARIS – Mar. 4, 2021 – Today Quantic Dream and the Berlin-based studio Jo-Mei are proud to launch the definitive edition of Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut only on Nintendo Switch. The Director’s Cut brings exclusive features and additional content not offered in the original release.
Sea of Solitude: The Director's Cut follows the journey of Kay, a woman turned into a monster by her own loneliness and despair, traveling a beautiful flooded world on a quest for inner serenity and peace. On this journey, she will confront metaphorical beings evoked by her own personal emotions, which she will have to overcome in order to learn more about herself and the world around her.
“I couldn’t be happier to launch our game for the first time on Nintendo Switch with the support from our partners at Quantic Dream,” said Cornelia Geppert, Founder and Creative Director of Jo-Mei. “This partnership and release of the Director’s Cut will allow more people to experience Kay’s journey the way we intended, whether that’s on-the-go or in the comfort of their own home.”
This reworked version of the indie title, developed by Jo-Mei Studios and published by Quantic Dream, offers a lot of new features to players, in order to maximize the immersion proposed by the original title. Through dialogues rewritten in collaboration with the multi-award winning author Stephen Bell, a new cast of actors and reworked cinematics, the game benefits from a more advanced narrative experience, taking the player on a singular and moving adventure.
Sea of Solitude: The Director's Cut also takes advantage of the Nintendo Switch's unique features; players can now control the flair with the gyroscope and use a brand new photo mode, which allows them to change the set up and weather. The game is also fully dubbed in English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese.*
“Quantic Dream is proud to release a game that corresponds with our signature brand of storytelling and narrative experiences, bringing difficult subjects to light ,” said co-CEO and Head of Publishing Guillaume de Fondaumière. “We have been thrilled to work with Connie Geppert and her talented team at Jo-Mei and are excited to share their enhanced version of Sea of Solitude, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.”
Nintendo Switch streamers will also have access to The Director’s Cut-dedicated Twitch extension called “Bottle Of Hope” that allows viewers and streamers to share positive messages together during a live stream. Written in partnership with Take This, a mental health nonprofit decreasing stigma and increasing support for mental health in games, the extension encourages players to talk about self-acceptance, mindfulness, resilience, motivation and compassion on Twitch.

STOCKHOLM – March 4, 2021 – Everhood, the unconventional RPG adventure from Foreign Gnomes where nothing is as it seems, explores the boundaries of existence and rocks out to musical battles on Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC today.
Welcome to Everhood, a bizarre realm located on the edges of space and time. Its inhabitants are a peculiar lot. These otherworldly entities spend their days wandering labyrinthine castles. Clubbing and board games are popular pastimes here, as well. That is, until a gnome steals an arm from Red, the wooden doll. A seemingly simple quest to reclaim it begins to pull at the fraying threads of this strange world, unraveling a mystery and reality in the process.
Go on a trip through the doors of perception. Explore fantastical environments in the hunt for the pinched limb. Play hide and seek with animate mushrooms in the forest, win carnival prizes, and race go-karts against colorful characters like mages, sentient save points, robots, and vampires.
Learn about Red’s past and come ever-closer to finding the Absolute Truths of the universe.
But knowledge often comes at a cost. Some of Everhood’s eclectic residents aren’t content to let Red roam the realm freely. Face off against challengers ranging from multi-legged monsters to brothers who run a plank-selling business and the fearsome Gold Pig in musical battles. Avoid incoming attacks by moving, grooving, and leaping out of harm’s way while jamming out to bespoke battle themes as varied as the inhabitants of this curious community.
Red’s journey is teeming with secrets and world-alerting revelations. As Everhood’s true nature begins to appear, adventurers will make decisions that impact Red’s role in the fate of everyone – and everything – the doll encounters. Experience a twisting story and overcome dance-based trials across five difficulty modes, a range of accessibility options, and an unlockable New Game Plus feature that calls into question everything that’s come before it.
“Everhood began as a side project between my co-developer Jordi Roca and me,” said Chris Nordgren, co-founder, Foreign Gnomes. “Since then, it’s evolved into the strange, vibrant, and mysterious game that we are so proud to share with everyone on Nintendo Switch and Steam today. Sign the contact, sell your soul, and join us in Everhood!”
Everhood is now available on Nintendo Switch for $14.99 and Steam for $9.99. It features English, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and Japanese language options. The PC version launches with beta mod support in the form of a fully-featured custom battle editor. Additional updates will be available following launch.
