Publisher Viridian Software is bringing its new visual novel Gloom and Doom to the Switch on July 19th, promising throwbacks to ’90s slacker movies but with a supernatural twist.
It stars Winona, an ordinary ’emo’ teenager who is secretly an immortal doom-bringer who could bring about the end of the world – except she doesn’t want to. She befriends a wraith and together they embark on a quest to prevent the coming apocalypse.
Here’s some more info from the game’s eShop page:
Gloom and Doom is a visual novel throwback to 90s slacker movies with a supernatural twist.
A depressed wraith is trying to earn his way back into heaven by hunting demons. After killing demons for 500 years, his final mark is a girl who believes she will cause the end of the world.
However, even his formidable powers are unable to kill her, and they go on a quest to find death and peace for her.
Featuring a cast of moody characters and a 90s superhero comicbook style, your choices will lead you to one of seven endings.
Will you save the girl or save the world?
