Lydia Is An Upcoming Switch Game Based On The “Tragic Childhood Memories” Of Its Developers
Later this month sees the launch of Lydia on Nintendo Switch, a narrative game that’s based on the real experiences and “tragic childhood memories” of its developers.
The game has players experiencing the story of a child who lives with ‘drunk and broken’ parents, with “emotional graphics, music and dialogue” said to be present throughout. It’s a short adventure, with the average playtime apparently lasting around one hour, but the asking price reflects that with just $4 / 4€ securing your copy.
It first launched on Steam back in 2017, gaining ‘very positive’ user reviews ever since. The trailer above should give you a better understanding of what you’ll actually see while playing through the adventure.
Speaking of trailers, a second video has also been shared by the game’s publisher, Nakana.io. It talks about the ‘Lydia Donation’ DLC package which will actually serve as a way for players to donate their money to Fragile Childhood, a non-profit organisation preventing harm caused by parental substance abuse. The DLC will cost $1 / 1€, with all net revenue going to Fragile Childhood. Players will receive an in-game colouring book for Lydia in return.
Lydia launches on the Switch eShop on 17th January. Feel free to share your thoughts with us on this one in the comments below.
