Press release:
Arbitrary Metric are today very happy and thrilled to announce that their experimental first-person horror game “Paratopic” is coming to the Nintendo Switch on August 21st, 2020 (the launch price has been set to 5.49$/5.49EUR).

Paratopic, an award-winning indie horror game experience where PlayStation-style graphics and experimental cinema blend together finally arrives on console. Smugglers, lost highways, assassination and long-forgotten forests await you in your pocket. A leisurely playthrough should take around forty-five minutes, with plenty to discover in the detailed, grimey low-polygon environments.

“Paratopic is a short first-person horror game which draws ideas from Thirty Flights Of Loving but takes them somewhere terrible, leading them down an alley and through an unmarked door into a world which looks a bit like ours but just isn’t right.” – Rock,Paper,Shotgun

“Paratopic brilliantly plays on horror imagery and freaky sound design to put you inside of a nightmare place.”Waypoint

“Paratopic‘s city is a sooty husk, a ruin whose scarce inhabitants eke out day-to-day existence by taking dangerous smuggling jobs, murdering for money, or reconfiguring their flesh in agonized cathode-ray rapture.” – Heterotopias

Just ideal for the pocket.

Over an hour of gorgeous critically-acclaimed dark ambient music is used to create our subtly dynamic, IGF award-winning soundscape. An anachronistic blend of modern and outdated production as glitches and textural pads meet synthesis & sampling akin to 1990s Unreal Engine soundtracks.

Developed by Arbitrary Metric, and ported by Baltoro Games (Urban Flow, Moto Rush GT), Paratopic will bring the horror to you this month.

About the developers:
Arbitrary Metric: Esoteric, haunted, and experimental games designed by programmer & artist Jessica Harvey (@oysterFAKE), and music/audio developer Lazzie Brown (@Lazarus_Audio), accompanied on Paratopic by writer & designer Doc Burford (@docsquiddy).

Content Warning:
The game contains weirdness, dismemberment, gore, body horror and coarse language.

We provide review codes for the game. If you need one, please reply to this email. Codes are limited.
