Developer Hollow Tree has announced that its first-person explorer Shape of the World will release on Nintendo Switch on June 6, 2018.
Shape of the World is a first-person explorer that casts you as an outsider experiencing a surreal world that reacts to your presence. Journey through vibrant ecosystems that spring to life with psychedelic colors, splashing waterfalls, luminous monoliths and graceful creatures.
A realm that leaves you free to progress at your own pace, without the incessant ticking of the clock. Find yourself pleasantly lost as you summit mountains, fly with whales, raise precipitous boardwalks and slide swiftly to new and ever stranger environments.
- First-person explorer:
Unwind as you wander at your own pace in surreal environments that beckon you to explore, hinting at distant landmarks and encouraging you to delve deeper into the woods.
- Play with an organic and mysterious ecosystem:
Interact with graceful animals, ephemeral flora, and intriguing monoliths. Your actions will alter the world you discover in vibrant and unexpected ways, leaving you to wonder what will happen with each new path you forge, each abandoned hollow you stumble upon.
- A living world:
The forest only materializes as you move through it, and regrows anew as you pass through areas you’ve previously explored. The handcrafted world offers you landmarks and familiar terrain to guide you through to the end of your trip.
- A dynamic soundtrack that responds to the player’s travels:
The audio shifts along with the visuals, providing an enveloping aural experience to match your psychedelic journey and amplify your immersion.
