Semispheres launches next week on Switch


Indie studio Vivid Helix today announced that Semispheres, its meditative parallel puzzle game, is set to launch on Nintendo Switch on September 14th, that is next week.



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.


The game is also on PC via Steam and PlayStation 4, so have a look, it is very different.
