Good Shepherd Entertainment has revealed a new partnership to publish independent South African developer Nyamakop’s world-busting puzzle platformer Semblance later this year on Nintendo Switch™ via the Nintendo eShop, as well as on Windows PC and Mac, for which the game had previously been announced.
Semblance is a puzzle platformer where your soft, bouncy character and its soft, bouncy world are almost entirely deformable. An infestation of hard material has started to spread throughout the land. Squish, squash, mould and deform yourself and the environment to solve challenging puzzles, squeeze through tight spots and restore your delicate world back to life! Semblance pops with gorgeous minimalist art style, atmospheric sound design and an engaging storyline to organically unravel as you explore its world. The game has received special honours for its unique gameplay and aesthetic at multiple gaming shows throughout development.
The game is non-linear in terms of exploration, and allows you to move between puzzles as you like, never forcing you to find a solution to progress, allowing you to tackle it later on. The game’s narrative is also presented expansively, which allows for a piecing together of the story in the players’ minds as they explore the game in their own fashion.
Semblance is available on Steam now, and is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB.
