It’s spooky season, which makes it the perfect time to discover 2D horror title Clea. After a successful release on PC (with an overall Very Positive review rating), Clea launches tomorrow on Switch, bringing its off-kilter creepiness to Nintendo’s console.
It’s a unique horror adventure, given that there’s no pre-scripted jump scares (the blurb for the game goes out of its way to genuinely promise this!) – instead relying on unsettling atmosphere and audio design to get under your skin.
The game casts you as the eponymous Clea, who – along with her brother – must escape from the mansion she’s been trapped in, which is overrun by monsters. It has a hand drawn, animated feel with classic inventory-based puzzle design and saves limited by the number of candles you have available (not unlike the ink-ribbon save method in the original Resident Evil).
Clea looks like the perfect game to spend playing on Halloween and beyond – you can find the game’s eShop page here.
