Amanita Design’s adventure game Pilgrims is coming to Switch on November 3

Amanita Design will release an adventure game pilgrims for Switch via Nintendo eShop on November 3 in the Americas and Europe, and a week later in Japan and Asia, the developer announced.

pilgrims first launched on PC via Steam and Apple Arcade on October 7, 2019.

Here’s a preview of the game, via Amanita Design:

pilgrims is a short, non-linear adventure game set in a charming little kingdom, inspired by old Central and Eastern European fairy tales and, in part, the books of John Steinbeck. It tells the story of Tramp, Granny, Bandit and Devil – four different characters, each with their own quirks and advantages – who end up traveling the country together, dealing with strangers and helping each other.

Thanks to the versatility of the Nintendo Switch and multiple input methods, pilgrims is playable in different modes on the console. Along with the usual handheld, tabletop, and TV modes, the game fully supports touch controls and includes an option to switch between landscape and portrait views.

The game’s key gameplay mechanic was inspired by a puzzle featured in Samorost 3, one of Amanita’s previous titles, in which players had to solve a problem by experimenting with the interaction of various playing cards. The player would then be rewarded with mild humor, fun animation accompanied by sounds. pilgrims is therefore filled with all kinds of surprising and light situations, encouraging the player to try different combinations because many problems can be solved in different ways. The game supports replayability with 45 unlockable achievements.

pilgrims was developed by a team led by Jakub Dvorsky, who designed the game and provided visual art. He was joined by his longtime collaborator, animator Vaclav Blin, programmer Michal Berlinger, and classic duo Tomsa “Floex” Dvorak and Tomas “Motak” Dvorak on music and sound effects, respectively. The game received the main Czech Game of the Year award in 2019 and a CEEGA Award for Best Mobile Game in 2020.
