Following on from an age rating leak, Red Candle Games have officially announced that their horror game, Detention, will be making its way to Nintendo Switch.
Set in 1960s Taiwan, Detention is a smart and deeply unsettling horror game, steeped in a unique history and culture that isn’t usually explored in games like this.
As the name suggests, you need to explore the mysteries surrounding a creepy school. It’s a 2D side scroller that plays like a point and click, and favours hiding from monsters rather than facing off against them. Of course, the school has a dark past.
“Greenwood high school, located in a remote mountainous area, two students found themselves trapped and vulnerable. The place they once knew has changed in unsettling ways, haunted by evil creatures. To escape, they must explore the mysterious campus filled with ominous objects and puzzles. How will they survive in this ever threatening environment? Could they return to safety in one piece?
Set in a fictitious world in the 1960s Taiwan under martial law, Detention, the story-driven atmospheric horror incorporated East Asian elements rarely used in games. Taoism, Buddhism, Chinese mythology, the game draws on local Taiwanese cultural references to tell an unique and terrifying story.” (x)
Detention will be making its way to Nintendo Switch at some point in the future.
