Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is one of the most beloved science fiction horror stories ever made. Published over a hundred years ago, the book’s themes of prejudice, romanticism, and revenge are as relevant today as they were then, not to mention the cautionary tale of science running amok. While it’s a story that has been examined and interpreted exhaustively in film and television, in video games there haven’t been any truly notable adaptions of Frankenstein. Enter La Belle Games’ and ARTE’s upcoming release The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature:

Here’s what fans can expect from the upcoming title, which is set for a Q1 release in 2020 on Nintendo Switch:

The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature goes back to the roots of Mary Shelley’s legendary novel, Frankenstein, and invites players to discover a being quite different from [sic] the pop culture icon: Starring a creature born neither good nor evil traveling through Europe in a search to find its origins and to learn about humanity. This journey is emotional and challenging for both the creature and the player as beauty and kindness are often followed by darkness, fear and hate. Depending on the decisions made by the player, the landscape and the soundtrack evolve throughout the game. The handcrafted watercolor environments, three years in the making, change from light and colorful to dark and moody, underlining the emotional atmosphere of the game.

The watercolor visuals are on full display in the trailer, but it will be very interesting to see how the final product utilizes this unique art direction to enhance the gameplay. Will you be looking forward to The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature launch next year? Tell us in the comments and on social media!
