Eastasiasoft recently ran a special Midsummer showcase to provide details on upcoming games. A total of 11 games were shown, and 7 of them are coming to Switch. Some we already knew about, and others were revealed for the first time. You can see a breakdown for each of the Switch titles featured below.
Quintus and the Absent Truth (July 6, 2022)
Alan Shaw’s daughter is missing, and the only one capable of helping him locate her may be a little mouse named Quintus. Join this odd couple in their search for answers, using height differences as an advantage.
Quintus and the Absent Truth is a horror-themed adventure told in first person. The puzzles encountered by Alan and Quintus often require you to figure out which character to use for the task at hand. Do you need Alan’s size to reach buttons, switches, and objects that are beyond Quintus’ reach, or is a hole just too narrow for Alan to fit through? Only by working together can they discover the truth they seek.
Rayland (July 13, 2022)
The inhabitants of Rayland use the energy of the Domus to survive, and to transport this energy they use a Reflectus, a type of equipment that reflects rays towards other Domus. Your mission is to help the inhabitants of Rayland to transport the energy of the Domus through the different lands contained in the path. To do this, you must position the Reflectus correctly and rotate them so that the energy rays reach the necessary Domus.
Rayland offers a variety of puzzles about reflecting a beam of light around an isometric playing field from point to point. The transmitter and receiver are fixed, and it’s up to you to reposition the mirror-like reflector panels to direct the beam path. The gameplay is simple, but the challenge is increasingly higher. Do you have what it takes to clear them all?
