Team Gotham and Merge Games are very excited to announce that their colorful, thought-invoking puzzler, Solo: Islands of the Heart, is coming to the Nintendo Switch next month. The game will be launching on August 1st.
Solo: Islands of the Heart is about love, and how it drives us. It is experienced a little differently by each person, and the game explores this introspectively with a branching narrative. Its goal is to have players reflect on their own experiences and how it shapes them. They call Solo a “contemplative puzzler” that takes place on a vibrantly colored, dream-like archipelago. Of course, nature can often trigger contemplation too, and so it also plays a large part in the game. Players can explore and contemplate its living world as fast or slow as they please. Take pictures of the scenery, play guitar for cute creatures, and more.
In said world, there are a number of islands, and each represents a puzzle that the player must solve if they wish to reach the Sleeping Totems and awaken them. Sailors exploring the islands can use various boxes with different properties to make their own way to their destinations on each island. There are multiple solutions for most puzzles in Solo: Islands of the Heart. Here are a handful of screenshots from the press release:
