Publisher Untold Tales and Brazilian developer Wondernaut Studio have announced a December 17, 2021 release date for sidescrolling adventure Aspire: Ina’s Tale on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. The game is described as “GRIS meets Limbo,” and people like both of those games — so hopefully they’ll like this one too! The simple premise is that the protagonist is trying to escape a living tower that is somehow feeding on her dreams. Here are the main features of Aspire: Ina’s Tale, in addition to its new release date trailer:
- EXPLORE A LIVING TOWER : Get lost in a mystical side-scrolling adventure through beautiful sprawling levels, each with their own distinct feel. Every region presents its own peculiarities to unravel.
- ENGAGING STORY: Ina’s dreams shape reality while the Tower feeds. Hopes and imagination satiate its hunger. How are the two connected?
- MEET THE TOWER DWELLERS: Learn about the other denizens of the Tower as you search for the truth. Uncover their pasts, their memories, and set them free.
- CONTROL SPIRITS: Ina was trapped for a reason, and her powers resonate with the spirits that inhabit the Tower. Use them to manipulate objects, solve puzzles, reveal hidden passages, and navigate the environment to find your way out.
This game had somehow not been on my radar at all until now, but it sure looks pretty. Maybe Aspire: Ina’s Tale will help make for a merry Christmas for Switch players when it arrives this December.
