An adorable musical adventure game called Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley is coming in 2023 from developer Hyper Games, and as Moomin fans we’ve got our fingers crossed that “PC and Consoles” means “and Switch” in this case.
You take on the role of the titular Snufkin who must restore balance to Moominvalley and restore its nature after a series of ‘grotesque’ parks has appeared.
The game combines open-world mechanics with puzzles, stealth, and melodic elements and is currently confirmed for PC and consoles – we presume (hope!) this includes Switch.
Here’s some key features from the game’s Steam page:
– A cozy adventure game in a gorgeous storybook art style
– Story-rich gameplay and charming characters to meet, each with their own charming stories to uncover and quests to solve, inspired by Tove Jansson’s work
– Explore Moominvalley’s open world and solve musical and environmental puzzles along the way to uncover its secrets
– Get the strict Park Keeper and his horrible parks out of Moominvalley with the help of your trusty harmonica, a bit of stealth, and the friends you’ll meet along the way
The game looks absolutely delightful and we’ll be sure to keep an eye on this one in the coming months. It’ll come to Switch, right? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
