Estranged: The Departure is a first-person puzzle adventure game that follows the story of a fisherman, stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm.

Little does he know his adventure has just begun, and the island is home to more than it first seems.

Experience what the island has in store as you uncover the secretive Arque Corporation, burrowing ever deeper into their dangerous and haphazard operations.

Estranged: The Departure expertly blends a rich first person narrative adventure with gripping action set-pieces and combat. The enigmatic first person adventure game has been in development for six years, designed as a completely standalone sequel to Edwardes' first game, a Half-Life 2 mod called Estranged: Act I.

Players will explore a rich, detailed landscape on their attempted escape back to the mainland, encountering puzzles, inscrutable island inhabitants and unraveling a decades-old mystery along the way.

Developer Alan Edwardes said "Estranged: The Departure has been a labour of love for 6 years and has been shaped by its community for the 3 years it was in Steam Early Access. With humble beginnings as a mod and inspired by titles such as Half-Life: 2, Estranged: The Departure includes traditional first-person shooter themes, with an engaging story and action/adventure gameplay. I am very excited to bring it to the Nintendo Switch platform, to allow it to be experienced anywhere, any time."

Key Features:

  • Experience the unique first person adventure
  • Immerse yourself in the rich narrative and unique characters
  • Interact with items, computers and audio logs for environmental storytelling
  • Protect yourself with guns and melee weapons, with familiar shooter combat

Currently available for PC (Steam), Estranged: The Departure will be coming to Nintendo Switch in Q4 2020, followed by a later release on Xbox One.
