'Mundaun' (ALL) Delayed On Nintendo Switch Until April

by Rainier on Feb. 25, 2021 @ 10:34 a.m. PST

Mundaun is a hand-penciled horror tale set in a dark, secluded valley of the alps where you explore various areas full of secrets to discover, survive hostile encounters, drive vehicles, fill your inventory and solve a variety of puzzles.

Mundaun takes players on a journey of a young man who travels to a dark, secluded valley of the Alps to face off with a malevolent entity that resides there and uncovers the mystery of his grandfather’s death.

Mundaun is a survival horror game set on the darker side of the Alps, and follows a young man named Curdin who travels to the Swiss town of Mundaun to learn more about the mysterious circumstances behind his grandfather’s death, and soon discovers that something diabolical is haunting the town’s residents. Throughout their journey across Mundaun, players will solve intricate puzzles to uncover the town’s secrets, while avoiding sinister characters that trigger the game’s fear system, a “cause-and-effect” feature which disorients players when facing dangerous situations.  

Mundaun has been a passion project for Ziegler since beginning development on the game in 2014. Having spent summers in the Swiss Alps as a child, Ziegler has an adoration for the region, including the culture and its various folktales passed down for generations.

Developer Hidden Fields and publisher MWM Interactive will release Mundaun on Nintendo Switch in April 2021.

“We want to take the proper time to ensure that every facet of Mundaun’s vibrant hand-penciled world is properly brought to life on the Nintendo Switch, so will be taking just a few extra weeks to perfect it,” said Hidden Fields founder and sole developer Michel Ziegler. “It has been an incredible journey working on the game and I look forward to delivering the best version of the game to all players this spring.”

Key Features:

  • Immerse yourself in a unique setting: An alpine world where reality and myth intertwine.
  • Experience a unique greyscale aesthetic thanks to hand-pencilled textures.
  • Explore varied and open levels from green meadows to snowy peaks. Beware of the creatures roaming the landscape.
  • Inventory system to keep you focused on collecting, find out the story secrets.
  • Fear resistance factor – A “cause and effect” for the player within the game eg: the stronger the fear the more slowly you move.
  • Solve Puzzles that are integrated into the game world as you make your way up the mountain.
  • Interact with its eccentric inhabitants who even have their own obscure spoken language.
  • Control vehicles such as sleighs and hay loaders.
  • Find out the dark secret behind grandfather's death.
