oprainfall | Strange Telephone


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 his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

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.
