Cyberpunk horror game Observer, from developer Bloober Team, is coming to Nintendo Switch soon.
Released on other formats back in August 2017, Observer was, for us, one of the highlights of the year. The game puts you in the shoes of Daniel Lazarski, a cybernetically-enhanced agent who has the ability to infiltrate other people’s minds to dig out information they may be hiding. The game begins with Lazarski receiving a message from his estranged son, who may be in danger.
When we reviewed Observer in 2017, we awarded it an impressive 9/10, saying:
“An audio and visual tour de force, Observer doesn’t pull any punches. It would appear that Layers of Fear was simply foreplay for Bloober Team; a warm up for the full-on fuckfest that Observer is. Combining investigation, exploration, stealth, puzzles, and a near constant barrage of horror, Observer is a meticulously created game that rarely puts a foot wrong. If you think you have the stomach for it, this could be one of the biggest surprises of the year.”
There’s no release date for Observer on Switch just yet, but we expect to see it sometime in the next few months. If you have yet to play Bloober Team’s wonderfully dark futuristic thriller, then its Switch release is definitely one to watch out for.
