Games are often about a simple rule: Don’t Die. But none more so than the survival games, which are more like: Don’t Die, But We Still Really Want To Die. We’ve seen quite a few survival games in recent years, many of which are bloody brilliant, and we’re now at that stage where we see survival-meet-other-genre games that mix things up a bit.
With this in mind, Residual is a spatially generated pixel art survival program in space. With the help of your practical but annoying robot companion, you will try to stay alive in a hostile alien world while trying to find a way home. Spoilers: A lot of things want to kill you. It’s a survival game, after all.
The rest will arrive on the Nintendo Switch in Q3 2021, some time towards the end of the summer.
