The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow is coming to the Nintendo Switch this month. If you haven’t already played this, and you’re a point and click fan, add it to your list immediately. If you like.
Set in rural Bewlay, Victorian England, you play as antiquarian Thomasina Bateman. She’s been contacted by a resident who’s asked her to investigate a barrow with an array of undiscovered treasures waiting to be discovered. Alas, on her arrival, her contact is nowhere to be found, and the locals aren’t entirely accommodating either.
A quick Switch trailer:
The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow Switch is available from the 25th of January. If you’ve stumbled here after getting the game and already stuck, here’s a link to the full walkthrough.
