South African-based studio, The Brotherhood Games, the same team behind the popular game Stasis, has announced that its 2D isometric adventure Beautiful Desolation is headed to PS4 and Nintendo Switch next month.
The game originally released on PC last year and saw players exploring an African-inspired landscape in beautiful 2D isometric art. The game follows classic point and click gameplay while delivering challenging puzzles, a deep story with thousands of lines of dialogue and loads of unique characters to meet along the way.
I have never played Beautiful Desolation before, or Stasis, but I have been following The Brotherhood Games for some time now and the studio’s unique approach to gameplay and art is definitely one of a kind. It merges modern-day storytelling with a classic point and click style gameplay to deliver something truly remarkable.
The console release of Beautiful Desolation is being handled by publisher Untold Tales. While we don’t know how the game’s movement system is going to work and whether or not the controls have been optimised for a controller yet, the idea of playing this on a massive TV on my PS4 is pretty exciting. The game is set to launch on 28 May for PS4 and Switch. Stay up to date with things by visiting The Brotherhood Games on Facebook.
