Curve Digital announced plans Wednesday to release Perfectly Paranormal’s whimsical behavioural comedy Manual Samuel on Nintendo Switch on Aug. 16th.
The companies say Manual Samuel is one of the wackiest titles to appear on the Nintendo eShop yet. Following the exploits of an arrogant trust-fundee who makes a deal with Death following a fatal car accident, Samuel is given one last shot at life if he can make it through a single day having to manually manage even the most instinctive tasks.
“Manual Samuel felt completely unlike anything else when we first debuted it in 2016,” said Perfectly Paranormal Director Ozan Drøsdal. “We hope the Switch’s convenient to carry Joy-Con controllers ensure more people try the comically challenging co-op mode.”
Manual Samuel features multiple game modes, including a Time-Attack high-score challenge and a co-op mode, in which two players collaborate to guide Samuel through the day.
“Manual Samuel is a funny game on its own, and it’s even funnier with a crowd,” said Project Manager Jakub Klitenik. “And thanks to the Switch’s portability, it’s now easier than ever to share its hilarious mishaps with friends."
The game is currently available for pre-order. It's rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
