AER – Memories of Old Launches on Nintendo Switch Today
The winner of the “Game Concept Challenge 2013” and “IndieCade Select 2016” invites you into its floating world full of Mysteries
Hamburg, August 28, 2019 – Daedalic Entertainment, in collaboration with Swedish indie developer On The Outskirts, is proud to announce that AER – Memories of Old is now available on Nintendo Switch.
In AER – Memories of Old the player takes on the role of the young nomad girl Auk, who, in the shape of a magnificent bird, explores the floating islands of her world. After the vanishing of the Gods, which left only a few nomad tribes behind, Auk faces challenges that have not been overcome for generations. The abandoned ruins of a long-forgotten civilisation amidst a fragmented and slowly decaying world are portrayed in a contrastingly bright and colourful low-poly style. But the peaceful look is deceiving: Every step leads closer to the end of the world.
- Explore the world freely by turning into a bird at any time
- As the game’s story unfolds, ancient secrets are revealed and great discoveries are made
- A pilgrimage full of mysteries, puzzles and temples
- A focus on atmosphere and aesthetics with vivid, low-poly graphics
Previously available on PC, Mac, Linux, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, AER – Memories of Old is rated Everyone 10+ and is available now on the Nintendo eShop.
