Effie launched digitally on the Switch eShop this April and will join Meridiem Games’ European boxed lineup this autumn. If you haven’t played this one before, here’s an official description taken from the eShop:
Effie is a 3D action-adventure game that combines the classic elements of the genre, such as combat, platforming and puzzles, with the exploration of an expanded world. In the game, we play as Galand, a young man in his quest to recover his youth after a witch cursed him with premature old age. A powerful black magic controls the cities of the region of Oblena and to face evil, we will carry a magic shield called Runestone. This shield has a very important role in our adventure because it will be our only weapon and tool. It will allow you to defend yourself, to fight and to surf across the red grassland.
Delve into the adventure of Galand, a young man in his quest to recover his youth after a witch cursed him with premature old age. Defeat all the sinister creatures, overcome all the platforming challenges and solve the most complex puzzles!
