Due for release later this year, Estranged The Departure is a first-person adventure game heading to the Switch, then later on the Xbox One.
A six-year development process, this is the follow up to developer Alan Edwardes Half-Life 2 mod, Estranged: Act I – a game with 93% positive reviews at the time of writing.
Despite being a follow-up, Estranged The Departure is a self-contained story that is independent of the original. Telling the story of a lone fisherman stranded on an island after a storm, it’s just job to help him escape.
A mysterious inhabited island, players can expect to tackle many puzzles and unravel a decades-old mystery along the way, that appears to be narrative-driven.
Key features include:
- Experience the unique first person adventure
- Immerse yourself in the rich narrative and unique characters
- Interact with items, computers and audio logs for environmental storytelling
- Protect yourself with guns and melee weapons, with familiar shooter combat
With humble beginnings as a mod and inspired by titles such as Half-Life: 2, Estranged: The Departure includes traditional first-person shooter themes, with an engaging story and action/adventure gameplay. I am very excited to bring it to the Nintendo Switch platform, to allow it to be experienced anywhere, any time.

Expect to see the game on the Nintendo Switch in Q4, with the Xbox One following up in due course. Alternatively, you can pick it up now for Steam.
