Mundaun, a horror game with hand-drawn visuals and a unique fear system, is coming to next-gen. Developer Hidden Fields has been working on the game since 2015 and has finally revealed its release date. Mundaun will come to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in Q1 2021.
The game, a horror experience set in the Swiss Alps, is inspired by designer Michel Ziegler’s own experiences holidaying in the Alps as a child.
At least some of the dialog in the game will be recorded in Romansh. This language is exclusive to a very specific region of the Alps and spoken by only 44,000 people as of 2017. The game is aiming for authenticity–an example was given of an in-game art studio you explore, which was modeled after a real house used by an artist in the region during the 1950s.
