Save the dying world of Umbra with Earthlock for Nintendo Switch!
Earthlock: Festival of Magic
Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: Old-school RPG
Through the ages, people have been always fascinated by the fabled worlds portrayed both in literature and folklore, all of them awed, and eluded us from the normal daily life through the ages. From the epic poets of antiquity to the post-modern writers of sci-fi, hundreds of storytellers have created imaginary and mythical lands, projecting in them human dreams, ideals, and fears.
Video games make no exception, they accompany us through these beautiful fantastic lands showing us their inhabitants, their heroes and antagonists, and, above all, their story. People like Homer, Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, Hironobu Sakaguchi or Shigeru Miyamoto inspired us to overtake our routines and enter in new worlds to confront things that are too incredible or challenging for our limited real-world influencing also the sensibilities and worldview of all of us.
Obviously, the best genre to live these experiences is RPG!
