Publisher PLAYISM announced that LiEat will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch. Previously released on PC, the Nintendo Switch version will be newly optimized for the console and feature 5 new illustrations. Preorders open on May 20th and the game will release on May 27th for $9.99.
LiEat is the brainchild of Japanese indie developer △○□× (Miwashiba), selling over 200,000 copies on Steam and receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from players all over the globe. Developed with the Wolf RPD Editor, LiEat has been optimized for release on the Nintendo Switch. It also features 5 brand new illustrations created by developer △○□×(Miwashiba).
The epic tale of LiEat is composed of three fantastical, bite-sized chapters, with strong focus on storytelling. Battle and expose “lies” that you cross paths with, appearing as enemy symbols in-game. Upon victory, Efina will proceed to eat up the lies, literally.
Efina is a very special young girl. She’s curious. She’s optimistic. She has the power to make lies manifest themselves as physical beings, which then become her own sustenance.
She’s also a dragon.
LiEat is an RPG that follows Leo, a informant-slash-conman, and Efina, a lie-consuming dragon, on their adventure through a strange world, buying and selling secrets while attempting to uncover the truth about themselves.
Come across bewildering incidents as well as a host of unusual characters throughout your journey, as you gradually learn of Leo’s and Efina’s past history.
