'Semblance' Also Comes to Nintendo Switch - Screens & Trailer

Semblance is a puzzle platformer where your soft, bouncy character and its soft, bouncy world are almost entirely deformable.

An infestation of hard material has started to spread throughout the land. Squish, squash, mold and deform yourself and the environment to solve challenging puzzles, squeeze through tight spots and restore your delicate world back to life!

Semblance pops with gorgeous minimalist art style, atmospheric sound design and an engaging storyline that unravels organically as you explore its world. The game has received special honors for its unique gameplay and aesthetic at multiple gaming shows throughout development.

Explore a world where the default is soft, where the property of 'hardness' doesn't exist. Each of the game's three worlds explore a new consequence of a planet that can shift, change and deform. Beat back the strange, crystalline infection of hard material by freeing the world's life essences and uncover the dark cause for its appearance.


Key Features:

  • Unique and innovative deforming platform gameplay: Can’t reach a collectible? Just deform and elevate a piece of the ground so that the point you jump from is higher. Nasty spikes in the way? Just deform and push-down the ground lower so that you can pass by. Squish, bounce, squash and transform the world- and yourself to solve problems.
  • Beautiful Minimalist Aesthetic Design: Explore 3 worlds bursting with colorful minimalist charm, quirky critters, and calming vistas. Become hypnotized by each world's dynamically layered score, each with a hint of African aural distinction.
  • Explore non-linearly The game allows you to move between puzzles as you wish, never forcing you to find a solution in order to progress and enabling you to come back later. Similarly, the game's narrative is presented expansively, allowing you to explore- and piece together the story for yourself as you roam the game.

Previously only announced for PC/Mac, Semblance is coming to Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop later this year.
