HZ3 Software, Active Gaming Media Inc., and Playism are happy to announce that the Nintendo Switch version of Strange Telephone is available now in the eShop. for digital download. There is also a 10% discount for the first two weeks after launch.

The game was developed by HZ3 Software. Its worlds are randomly generated depending on the number you dial on the phone. Shortly after launching on mobile, Strange Telephone became the second most download game on the Japanese AppStore. It also got critical acclaim for the PC version. Here is the trailer for the new Nintendo Switch version:

 

Trapped in a dark world with a large floating door, we find the protagonist, Jill. She is not alone, though. Graham, who takes on the form of a telephone, will help her. Making phone calls with Graham creates various worlds to explore. Each of these worlds contains items that can be found as you explore, like a key that will lead Jill to escape. However, the longer you stay in a single world, the more the glitches will build up! Eventually they will lead to the collapse of that world! You can find out more about the game at its official website and the Nintendo Switch eShop page. Lastly, here are some screenshots from the press release:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
