Red Ego Games and Green Man Gaming have announced that the 2D side-scrolling horror adventure Re:Turn - One Way Trip will be releasing September 29th.
Starring protagonist Saki, Re:Turn tells the story of five college friends on a post-graduation vacation when Saki wakes up to find all her friends have disappeared. Lured to an abandoned train that had seemingly been waiting for its final passenger, she finds herself trapped on board searching for her lost friends as the barriers between past and present begin to dissolve, facing with otherworldly horrors.
Featuring two playable characters, of which Saki is one, Re:Turn - One Way Trip has you solving puzzles and putting together the story of the ghostly inhabitants of the train. Most pressingly perhaps, is the story of the evil that haunts it and seems to be avenging an unrequited love.
If September 29th sounds like it is a long time to wait, then there is some good news - Re:Turn One Way Trip will be taking part in the Steam Summer Game Festival next week. Starting on June 16th, you'll be able to download a demo of the game to give a try to the gorgeous pixel art on display. If you are on console, while there is no demo, Re:Turn One Way Trip will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, in addition to PC.
I'm not generally too much into horror games - I find many of them too much focused on cheap scares for my taste - but the story focus and beautiful pixel art of Re:Turn - One Way Trip caught my eye and definitely stands out. This September may be busy (Cyberpunk is coming out after all) but it seems like Re:Turn may well be worth a return trip to after the demo next week.
