When your young daughter goes missing, your first thought would probably not be to recruit the help of a mouse named Quintus. However, that is exactly what distraught father Alan Shaw has turned to, and it’s probably a good idea to be accompanied by a companion – albeit a rodent companion – as the dynamic duo will be experiencing the newest horror game on the market.
Quintus and the Absent Truth is today debuting on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, putting you in the boots of both Alan and Quintus – your role is to switch between the two according to the task at hand. As you navigate through the four chapters of horror exploring, you will be actioning high-up buttons with Alan, or crawling through tight spaces as Quintus, all in the aim of solving a number of puzzles and riddles in this cel-shaded environment.
Full features of the game include:
- Experience a narrative-rich horror adventure in first person!
- Alternate between man and mouse to navigate riddling environments.
- Solve puzzles across 4 main chapters!
- Immerse yourself in a unique 3D visual style.
- Discover a museum of secrets upon completing the story!
So, if you are looking for a new first-person horror mystery to solve, akin to recent releases such as Layers of Fear, then you can pick up a copy of Quintus and the Absent Truth on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Switch right now. For Xbox – you’ll be looking over on the Xbox Store, where a copy costs £8.39.
Take the role of a man and his mouse across a sprawling first-person horror adventure! Alan Shaw’s daughter is missing, and the only one capable of helping him locate her may be a small mouse named Quintus. Join this odd pairing on their search for answers, using the differences in their size as an advantage. Quintus and the Absent Truth is a horror-themed adventure told in first-person perspective. Puzzles that Alan and Quintus encounter often require you to work out which character to use for the task at hand. Do you need Alan’s height to reach buttons, switches and items that are out of Quintus’ reach, or is a hole simply too tight for Alan to fit through? Only by working together can they discover the truth that they seek.
