Soul Searching

System: Nintendo Switch Release date: 25/10/2019

Sail away from your homeland, visit new islands, discover the stories of their people, and learn about souls.

DO IT YOUR WAY

The gameplay is about exploring and surviving, alone or as a crew of up to 4 travelers. You must deal with hunger, thirst, energy loss, merciless beasts, and the weather. You can fish, purchase new boats and tools, and even cast magic spells. There is not one correct play style or path to follow. Go where the wind blows and experiment on your own. Can you actually get lost when the journey is the destination?

WHAT IS LIFE?

The "Story Mode" of Soul Searching invites you to reflect on existence and search for meaning with contemplative moments and thought-provoking dialogues. Seven extra “short stories” also introduce you to various art and storytelling experiments. You may find them innovative and inspiring.

ASSEMBLE A CREW

The "Random Mode" generates a unique map at the beginning of each new game, to explore by yourself or with up to 3 other players. But beware if you choose to cooperate: more people means more mouths to feed, and only good teamwork will lead to your survival.

FEATURES SUMMARY

  • Meaningful single player “Story Mode”
  • “Random Mode” for 1 to 4 players with auto-generated maps for more replay value
