Return of the Obra Dinn lands October 18 for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One


*Cue 'Return of the Mack'*

Return of the Obra Dinn, a cool game for cool people created by known cool guy Lucas Pope, is coming soon to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The developer announced an October 18, 2019 release date for consoles with a neat little image that evokes the game's 1-bit monochrome style.

As a first-person detective adventure, Return of the Obra Dinn feels at home when played with a mouse and keyboard, but I'm stoked to see it reach a wider audience particularly the Nintendo Switch port, which has been repeatedly asked for, according to Pope. This game still has a long life ahead of it.

Don't forget your cork board. The ghost ship awaits.
