“Paradise Lost” Coming to Nintendo Switch on 3 December
A Europe of Hell, a Hell of Europe” – John Milton (probably)
On Wednesday, publisher All in! Games announced that Paradise Lost is now available to preorder on Nintendo Switch ahead of its scheduled release on 3 December. The game was already released on Steam this past March.
Developed by Polish studio PolyAmourous, Paradise Lost is not based on the supernatural epic by Milton, but rather is described as a “post-apocalyptic alt-history narrative adventure” set in a nuclear war-ravaged Europe.
Here’s the official breakdown of Paradise Lost’s story & setting from All In!:
WWII persisted for 20 more years only to end in flames when the Nazis launched nuclear missiles on most of Europe. In the aftermath, the heart of Europe remains shrouded in the mystery of complete destruction and deadly radiation, inaccessible to the rest of the world.
It’s winter 1980, when Szymon, a 12-year-old boy raised in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, finds a massive, abandoned Nazi bunker, an underground world, where Slavic mythology mixes with retro-futuristic technology. Uncover the story of the bunker, from its takeover by Polish rebels to the ultimate fate of its inhabitants. What happened to them?
Despite the desolation of the bunker, a mysterious girl named Ewa contacts Szymon through the bunker’s technology. If he can find her, she might be able to help him learn about his past. If he can find her, he finally won’t be alone…
Paradise Lost is scheduled to release for on Nintendo Switch on 3 December, priced at $14.99/€14.99/£13.49 (or approximately 2.70 in Bison dollars). There will also be a wallet-friendly launch discount of 40% discount for a limited time.
On a personal note, how does anybody really think of anywhere in Europe as “paradise”, anyway, on account of all the vampires and communists?
