Brain Tickling Puzzles A Go-Go As Relicta Launches On Nintendo Switch
Ravenscourt and Mighty Polygon are releasing the critically acclaimed game Relicta on Nintendo Switch as well as Xbox Series X today.
Exploring a mysterious space station, players have to solve a selection of physics-based puzzles which get progressively harder.
As of today, players on PC, Xbox, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia will be able to download a patch that includes two free content DLCs: Aegir Gig and Ice Queen. Relicta players on Nintendo Switch get the complete edition upon release.
You can watch the fantastic new trailer and see it for yourself.
Relicta is a first-person physics-based puzzle game. Played through the eyes of a scientist, you’ll need to use your creativity to play with the laws of physics, utilizing magnetism, polarity and gravity to unravel the secrets of a research facility on the moon.
The first of the two free DLCs - Aegir Gig - has you playing as Nic, a bioengineer tasked with testing the gravitomagnetic interfaces in the environments he helped design for AEGIR Labs years before the events of the main game, with 12 new and even more challenging puzzles to solve as you experience the Chandra Base in a whole new way.
The second DLC - Ice Queen - follows on from events in the main story, as you play as one of the survivors of Chandra Base after the end of Relicta. Alone in the depths of the moon, you discover a new biome with 12 additional puzzles that will challenge you in unique ways by using two new mechanics, combined with your toolset from the main game, to escape and find out more about what happened in the derelict lunar base.
