Publisher Sold Out Games and developer White Paper Games have announced a November 2, 2021 release date for Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The game is a “gripping observational thriller set in 1950s England.” Retired detective Robert Conway is investigating the disappearance of 8-year-old Charlotte May, and there are “puzzles to solve and dark secrets to uncover,” as one would expect. Some of the investigation occurs at your window sill, seemingly Rear Window-style.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will offer options for 4K or ray tracing modes, and the PS5’s DualSense controller will incorporate haptic feedback and adaptive triggers as well. Unfortunately, no such bells or whistles seem to accompany the Switch release, but that’s nothing we aren’t already used to. Check out the Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View release date trailer to get a better idea of what awaits you this November on Switch.
White Paper Games’ previous titles include experimental titles Ether One and The Occupation, neither of which released on Nintendo Switch. However, first-person adventure Ether One was particularly well received with its unique and reportedly accurate portrayal of dementia. The Occupation received a rockier reception but is a unique real-time investigative puzzle game that plays out over a span of a few hours. Whatever Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View turns out to be, it’s bound to stand out in the Nintendo Switch library upon its release in November.
