During today’s Nintendo Indie World live presentation, Atomic Wolf announced that their side-scrolling noir Liberated will be coming to Nintendo Switch next year. Set in a near-future dystopia, people live in constant fear of an overarching government that watches its occupants through online monitoring and other forms of surveillance. Unlike platformers we are traditionally accustomed to, Liberated stands out for being a combination between 2-Dimensional and posing as a visual novel.
The new trailer that subjects just a brief look at the game shares some instances of the four different issues that will be playable throughout the progression of the story. Each will be interconnected in its own way as all are set within the same unnamed metropolis. You can watch the trailer below:
Earlier this year, I featured the project here on Rectify Gaming during my time at PAX East 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts. Discussing some primary development obstacles that the team shared to be the biggest issue was consistency of the game’s direction and art style. Co-founder of the game’s publisher L.INC Robert Purzycki shared with me that the keeping true to source material to give off the appearance of a comic book as you seen in the trailer proved to be the most difficult in keeping on a tight leash.

Do you plan on picking up liberated later on in 2020 for Nintendo Switch?
Liberated is listed for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
