Quirky Puzzle Game I Am Dead is Releasing This October on Switch and PC
Annapurna Interactive and Hollow Pond's quirky puzzle game I Am Dead is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC on October 8.
Publisher Annapurna Interactive has announced that puzzle game I Am Dead is releasing on October 8 on PC and Nintendo Switch.
I Am Dead follows Morris Lupton, a deceased museum curator who’s living on an island called Shelmerston. He later reunites with his dog Sparky in the afterlife as his island is on the brink of destruction. It’s up to Morris and Sparky to uncover mysteries in the island in order to save it. Throughout the game, you’ll solve puzzles that relate to connecting objects from people that are deceased.
The game was announced back in March during Nintendo’s Indie World presentation. It’s the latest game from developer Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg, who are known for games like Wilmot’s Warehouse and Hohokum. DualShockers’ own Charlie Wachloz got a chance to play it back in August. From its unique art style, story, and quirky puzzles, I Am Dead looks like another great addition to Annapurna Interactive’s lineup.
Speaking of Annapurna Interactive, this isn’t the only game they’re releasing this holiday. Later this year, they’ll release The Pathless, the latest game from the developers of Abzu. The game recently released a new gameplay trailer before it launches on the PS4, PS5, Apple Arcade, and PC. Another game coming from them is 12 Minutes, an interactive thriller starring Willem Defoe, Daisy Ridley, and James McAvoy. Additionally, games like Solar Ash and Stray will release in 2021. For those like me that love buying physical games, Annapurna Interactive has partnered with iam8bit on a collection of eight games. The games in the collection include Donut County, Outer Wilds, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Sayonara Wild Hearts.
I Am Dead launches on October 8 on PC and Nintendo Switch. You can watch a trailer below. As more news comes about upcoming Annapurna games, we’ll be sure to let you know.
