The video game publisher Koch Media and Germany-based indie games developer illius are today very happy and proud to announce that their unique adventure game “Nordlicht” is now available for the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo Eshop.
Put on your warmest coat and bundle up to traverse the cold North today, thanks to “Nordlicht” a truly unique adventure game on Nintendo Switch™. Nordlicht is out on the Nintendo eShop as off now and takes players on a journey alongside the curious girl Aurora.
Together with her trusty guinea pig Peter Parsley and her father Rupert she explores the cold North diving deeper and deeper into a mysterious story filled with riddles.
Nordlicht is an adventure game in which you accompany an unusual family on a fascinating journey to the cold North. You control the curious Aurora, Peter Parsley (her guinea pig and best friend, who refuses to leave her side), and her clever dad, Rupert. Along their way, they discover the mysterious constellations of the polar night sky, and will have to face the dangers created by mother nature and their own fears. Sometimes, you’ll use and combine items you find in the traditional point-and-click manner. Other times, you’ll have to put your dexterity and reaction time to the test as you brave icebergs, giant waves, and thunderstorms in your little sailboat. The intuitive controls, atmospheric music, and lovingly hand-drawn graphics make Nordlicht an unforgettable experience—fun for all ages.
