Hidden Fields, the one-man development team founded by Michel Ziegler, has announced that the company’s horror title Mundaun will launch for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on March 16, 2021. The game is heavily inspired by folk-lore and is Ziegler’s first full-length project to see the light of day.
Speaking in a press release, Ziegler commented:
It’s exciting to finally have a release date and share the experience of Mundaun with the passionate community that has been following the game over the past several years. The Alps hold a special importance to me and everything from the game’s story to the hand-pencilled characters and environments celebrate the remarkable culture of the Swiss region of Grisons.
I’m glad to have worked with MWMi to bring this project to the finish line and look forward to players uncovering Mundaun’s secrets.
Mundaun follows the journey of a young man who travels to face off against a ‘malevolent entity’ in a dark, secluded valley of the Alps. In doing so, the protagonist hopes to uncover the mystery behind the death of his grandfather.
Players can expect to solve puzzles and uncover the titular town’s secrets while avoiding characters who trigger Mundaun’s “cause-and-effect” fear system, which disorients players during dangerous situations.
