Today’s Annapurna Interactive Showcase held several different game reveals, including a few games for Switch such as Storyteller. Unveiled by Annapurna Interactive and Daniel Benmergui, Storyteller is described as a “reactive puzzle game” that enables players to build the story. Annapurna provided the following brief trailer and overview.
Experience some of history’s greatest stories like never before. Storyteller is an award-winning reactive puzzle game that lets you build the story.
Storyteller’s charming animations and comic-panel design allows for a unique puzzle mechanic. Use your wits to retell iconic tales — or experiment and find something new.
Play with a library full of characters and themes, featuring heroes and villains, dragons and vampires, infidelity and remorse, love, lies, madness, and more! Use the blank canvas to manipulate secrets and desires, slay monsters or terrorize people with them, betray lovers or bring them together. You know how the stories go — but this time you are the author.
We don’t have a release date quite yet beyond “coming soon,” but what we’ve seen and heard so far is enough to get me excited. Storyteller looks like the kind of game that’ll be excellent for the inner author in all of us, with the potential to bring out all sorts of interesting stories, ranging from epic to heartfelt to sadistic.
