ARTE and La Belle Games reveal the release date for their story-driven adventure game, The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature, and it’s Halloween! That’s right, the game hitsWindows PC and Mac on October 31st, and will come to mobile platforms in November. Nintendo Switch users can expect it in Q1 2020.
The Wanderer goes back to the roots of the legendary novel by Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, and has players discovering a being quite a bit different from the original pop-culture icon. The creature is born neither good nor evil and will travel through Europe to find its origins, and learn about humanity. It aims at being emotional and challenging for the creature and the player as beauty and kindness are often followed by darkness, fear, and hate. The landscape and soundtrack will evolve based on decisions made by the player, and the handcrafted watercolor environments (three years in the making) are absolutely gorgeous.
Cédric Bache, Producer at La Belle Games had this to say:
“We wanted to bring the iconic scenes of the novel to life in The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature, seeing every level as an evolving painting inspired by the romantic era. The book isn’t about the monster that we know from popular culture, but about what it means to be human. When a child’s soul is part of an adult body, and that child doesn’t understand the way the world works.”
