A new game, titled Metropolis: Lux Obscura, appeared on the North American Switch eShop today. Coming in at $7.99, this is a budget title with an interesting gameplay premise. The game essentially breaks down to a motion comic, with a non-linear plot and match-3 style puzzle battles.

The publisher for this one is Sometimes You. For those unfamiliar with the games they deliver, check out our reviews for both North and Energy Invasion, and temper your expectations for this one.

The description from the eShop is as follows:

You can’t even tell night from day in this hell where big money runs everything. And the best way to prove you’re right is with brute force.

Jon Lockhart walked through the prison gates a free man, after spending years imprisoned as the supposed murderer of an old friend. He returned once more to the city where it all started intent on figuring out who it was that framed him for the murder and make them pay in blood for the crime. It’d take some work with the key witness dead, but that just meant he’d have to flush out every rat from hiding.

Old friends and new enemies. Search for the truth, for loyalty and sanity – but all you can find here is redemption, betrayal and death.

Welcome to Metropolis.
