Mundaun was originally announced for a March 16th, 2021 release on Switch, but unfortunately, we'll have to wait a bit longer for the game. The dev/pub team have announced a delay for the Switch version, with it now set to release sometime in April 2021. You can see the full note on the delay below.
Independent game developer Hidden Fields and publisher MWM Interactive will release the folklore-inspired horror adventure game Mundaun on Nintendo Switch in April. The game will release as scheduled across PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on March 16.
“We want to take the proper time to ensure that every facet of Mundaun’s vibrant hand-penciled world is properly brought to life on the Nintendo Switch, so will be taking just a few extra weeks to perfect it,” said Hidden Fields founder and sole developer Michel Ziegler. “It has been an incredible journey working on the game and I look forward to delivering the best version of the game to all players this spring.
Mundaun is a lovingly hand-pencilled survival horror tale that follows a young man named Curdin who travels to a dark, secluded valley of the Alps to learn more about the mysterious circumstances behind his grandfather’s death. Along the way, he discovers that something diabolical is haunting the town’s residents and begins a journey to discover Mundaun’s secrets. Throughout their journey, players will solve intricate puzzles and learn more about the town, while avoiding sinister characters that trigger the game’s fear system, a “cause-and-effect” feature which disorients players when facing dangerous situations.
Mundaun has been a passion project for Ziegler since beginning development on the game independently in 2014, with all of the game’s characters and environments hand-penciled by Ziegler himself. Having spent summers in the Swiss Alps as a child, Ziegler has an adoration for the region, including the culture and its various folktales passed down for generations.
