After releasing for PC last month, developer Nerd Monkeys’ hand-drawn puzzle platforming title Out of Line has made its way to Nintendo Switch today. If you’re the type who enjoys colorful, creative puzzle adventure, this one might be worth picking up and adding to your collection.
Out of Line is heavily inspired by the animation of Studio Ghibli, which is clear by its striking painterly visuals. The beautiful aesthetic blends perfectly with the game’s tale of main character San and his quest to recover his memory, clearly bringing the focus on existentialism and mystery. Nerd Monkeys designed the game so that the narrative is at least somewhat up to personal interpretation, ensuring that each player derives something different from the experience.
Gameplay in Out of Line features dozens of puzzles that see San using a magical spear to climb walls, activate switches, and move platforms as he navigates various landscapes. Mastering how the spear works is the only way players will make it through the many perilous locations and earn San’s freedom. If you’ve played similar puzzle titles, though, you should be right at home here.
Out of Line is available today on Switch, but you can also get your hands on it on PC if you’d prefer. If you’re not interested in playing it on either platform, though, it will eventually be available sometime later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well.
