Semispheres Coming to Switch on September 14

Posted by TurtleGirl On September - 7 - 2017

Vivid Helix has announced parallel puzzle title, Semispheres is coming to Nintendo Switch via the eShop on September 14 in Europe and North America. Take a hop, skip and jump to check it out the trailer below.
 


 

Semispheres is a beautiful, 2D puzzle game, with a gorgeous, synth-led soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, composer of Antichamber and The Stanley Parable, that places dual realities at the heart of its challenge. Featuring a bichromatic art style comprised of warm blues and oranges, it’s a game that seeks to reunite two parallel worlds.
 

“With its unique single-player split-screen mechanic, Semispheres challenges your mind by putting you in control of two characters at the same time,” said Radu Muresan, designer of Semispheres. “With a minimalist art style and a soundtrack by visionary composer Sid Barnhoorn, we are excited to launch Semispheres on the eShop for a new generation of Nintendo Switch players.”
 

In Semispheres, each analogue stick controls a different avatar in environments that might initially appear identical but reveal profound differences crucial to progression. Portals allow the avatars to enter each other’s reality, creating fiendishly complex inter-dimensional puzzles, with success reliant on methodical planning and skilful execution. It’s not all esoteric brain workouts, though. Tension is introduced through the sentries that guard these worlds, whose fields of vision you must evade in order to find safe passage and the eventual resynchronisation of the worlds.
 

With fiendish puzzles that escalate in complexity, Semispheres presents a real challenge for both puzzle aficionados and newcomers to the genre alike. Yet the game’s beautiful audio and visual presentation ensure things never get too much, making it as soothing an experience as it is challenging. Semispheres is also available on PC through Steam and for PlayStation 4 on the PlayStation Store.
