February is certainly the month that keeps on giving. Forge Reply have announced that Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf is heading to the Nintendo Switch on February 16th. Unlike most RPGs, Lone Wolf has you blaze your own path in it’s non-linear story telling, much like the “choose your own adventure” books that were popular in the 90’s.
Here is the official Press Release, courtesy of Forge Reply:
“The unique blend of non-linear storytelling and RPG combat takes full advantage of the Nintendo Switch™ versatility.”
Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf has become a classic in the indie role-playing games scenario over the last few years, with its mix of non-linear reading content, deep character customization and a rewarding combat system. When the Nintendo Switch™ was released in 2017, the game immediately looked like a great fit for the new console.
Now, the time has finally come for Forge Reply to announce the release of Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf on Nintendo Switch™, on the 16th of February. The game is currently available for pre-order at a special price on the Nintendo eShop.
Watch the trailer here:
Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf is based on the “choose your own adventure” gamebooks of the 80s, written by worldwide famous author Joe Dever. Mr. Dever was involved personally in the development, writing the story and driving the work of the whole team with his inspiring passion. Lone Wolf, the last of the order of the Kai Lords, must face yet another threat posed by the dreaded Darklords. No-one has heard from the border village of Rockstarn in weeks, and Lone Wolf travels to the very frontier of the Kingdom of Sommerlund to find out what happened.
He will find challenges and adventures awaiting for him, memorable characters and meaningful choices to make as the story progresses. Epic battles will take place at the wild frontier, deep down in ancient ruins and even across the border, trespassing into the terrible Darklands. Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf presents the player with an enhanced gamebook that includes classic RPG elements, such as an interactive world map, quests and merchants to acquire and upgrade powerful battle gear. When the moment for action comes, battles are played in dynamic turns, with abilities that range from melee to ranged, to the mighty magical attacks of the Sommerswerd, the legendary Sword of the Sun.
Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf will be available for Nintendo Switch™ in digital format. The game will be released on February 16th 2018, published by Forge Reply.
