Surprise – releasing a Shakespeare game on Nintendo Switch? Although it is madness, it has a method. You see, something is wrong in the Kingdom of Denmark, and you need to fix it in Ryan North’s staff. To be or not to be, an adaptation of his video game wildly popular graphic novel, developed by Tin Man Games.
“Wait,” you say. “How do I know this name, Ryan North?” You know this, maybe from Dinosaur comics, or because he’s a successful and award-winning comic book writer working on Adventure Time and The Ultimate Squirrel Girl, or maybe because “To be or not to be” was extremely popular Kickstarter project with illustrations by other cool comics artists like Kate Beaton, K.C. Green and David Hellmann from Second quest and a scythe of glory? Is it one of those?
To be or not to be video game out Now, and you can choose between Hamlet, Ophelia, and the Ghost of Hamlet’s father, either choosing to follow the story or going wildly go off the rails with pirates and time travel and all the other stuff that Shakespeare was too BORING to include.
TBONTB costs $6.99 / £6.99 / €7.99 on the online store and includes narration, achievements and the like. According to North. The only question is: to buy or not to buy?
