2019-12-10 — Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase has just featured “Liberated” among its hand-picked, gloriously innovative indie titles coming to Nintendo Switch!
It’s official: Liberated will be coming to Nintendo Switch first in 2020, but you can already wishlist and follow on Steam today.
Liberated is a groundbreaking new vision for the future of digital comics. Seamlessly merging the art of hand-drawn graphic novels with interactivity and side-scrolling action, this is an action-adventure game that unfolds across the pages of a comic book.
Liberated asks difficult questions about modern issues. Government surveillance, state-driven misinformation, fake news, and weaponized personal data paint the world in shades of gray. Knowing which battles are worth fighting, and where to draw the line between revolution and terrorism, has never been more paramount.
It’s an honor to be chosen by Nintendo for the Indie World Showcase! With their support we’re excited to announce that Liberated will be coming in 2020 giving us more precious time and space to refine the experience and perfect its message.
The Switch-first release will shortly be followed on PC via Steam and GOG.
