A highlight of Nintendo’s most recent Indie World Showcase livestream, Indonesian developer Mojiken and publisher Chorus Worldwide has commenced releasing their point-and-click puzzle game When the Past Was Around on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
When the Past was Around invites players to gather clues, solve puzzles and unravel secrets buried deep within the protagonist’s mind. Haunting violin music replaces the written word as gamers delve into Eda’s world, retracing memories of her love, from the first moments of happiness in a new relationship, through dates and fun adventures, to heart-wrenching moments of sorrow and the search for a new future.
When the Past was Around was first released in September 2020 for the PC, with these releases marking its console debut. Promoted features of the game include:
