‘Evan’s Remains’ Releasing in June

Developer maitan69 and publisher Whitethorn Digital took to Twitter to announce that their upcoming adventure puzzle platformer Evan’s Remains will release on the 11th of June on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. There is a demo available for a limited time, until the 23rd of March, on Steam.
Evan’s Remains has been designed so that players proceed through the story after they’ve solved two to three puzzles, and new mechanics are then introduced. Puzzles aren’t focused on player skill, but rather on player discovery on what to do. The path forward is not always clear, so players are encouraged to investigate and seek out the path forward. As players move forward, the difficulty will increase, and puzzles will become more complex by combining two or more previously introduced mechanics.
Evan was a genius boy who has been missing. One day, a letter from him is signed and received, claiming that he’s on an uninhabited island located somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Unbeknownst to anyone, he specifically asked for a girl named Dysis to go and look for him. You’ll play as the mysterious Dysis, and embark on a grand adventure full of puzzles. Slowly players will unravel the story of Evan, Dysis, and all of the little puzzle pieces which seemed unrelated in the beginning will now begin to slowly fit together as the truth is slowly revealed. Other features are as follows:
- As Dysis, you’ll need to solve an intricate series of puzzles to unravel the entire mystery—and bring Evan home.
- It creates an almost mystical environment, transporting us to an island paradise in appearance, but which brings dark secrets.
- Steeped in inspiration from Japanese graphic adventures, Evan’s Remains is a mystery-thriller puzzler that’s part graphic novel and part puzzle platformer.
- Navigate your way through the strange island to complete the puzzles, find Evan, and uncover the truth about his disappearance.
- An intricate narrative that creates more questions than answers
- Approachable and simple controls
