European TV channel ARTE and developer La Belle Games have announced a new joint project. The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature is a narrative adventure game coming to PC on October 31st. It'll also hit mobile and Nintendo Switch at a later date.

According to La Belle, The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature aims to get back to the roots of Mary Shelley's iconic novel. The goal is to recast Frankenstein's creature not as a horror monster but as a misunderstood traveler, much like in the source material. La Belle says the journey will be "emotional and challenging" for both the player and the creature.

Developer La Belle describes The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature as "a point-and-click narrative game" with a watercolor-inspired aesthetic. The game will take place across eighteen different painting scenes, each of which contains a series of decisions for the player to make. The landscape evolves and changes based on what you decide, leading to a series of different endings; La Belle says your actions "will shape the end of your story", so you should choose carefully.

If you want to get your hands on The Wanderer: Frankenstein's Creature, you don't have long to wait. It'll launch on PC via Steam on October 31st, but you can wishlist the game right now if you want to. A mobile release for the game is slated for November, and a Nintendo Switch launch will follow sometime in Q1 2020. We don't have exact dates for the mobile or Switch releases of the game, so hang on in there and we'll bring you more when we get it.
