I don’t know what she’s saying, but she’s speaking my language!
Game publisher Playism has announced that the unique puzzler 7 Days to End with You is coming to Nintendo Switch on 26 January 2023.
Developed by Lizardry, 7 Days to End with You is a narrative-driven puzzle game where players must decipher an unknown language to reveal the story underlying story.
7 Days to End with You has been available for Steam PC and mobile platforms since early this year, but this new version on Nintendo Switch includes a few extra features not found in previous releases.
Here’s the official breakdown of 7 Days to End With You from Playism, followed by the latest trailer:
To know a language, know the world, and finally know you.
- You don’t know a single word in the language of this world.
- Deduce the meanings of words the person before you uses to communicate with you.
- Then try to understand them like a puzzle, one piece at a time.
- You are free to perceive the meaning of the words you read.
- The relationship between the two characters is built on the words you interpret.
- And their story is also built on the words you interpret.
- Their world changes according to your understanding.
- Maybe their story is a short, ordinary story, or maybe it’s a long, peculiar story.
- Or both stories could exist at the same time. There’s nothing wrong with that.
- The story is only complete with your interpretation.
- So certainly, every story your interpretation results in is correct.
- Even if you don’t understand the story at first, you have the opportunity to repeat it over and over again.
- This is a short and long story, of only seven days.
- Coming to Nintendo Switch on January 26, 2023 with new endings and other features
