Dismemberment and other violent methods are the means to solving puzzles in this platformer.
White Owls Inc.’s newest game The Missing, helmed by Hidetaka “Swery65” Suehiro of Deadly Premonition fame, is out now for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The grisly mystery focuses on J.J. as she navigates Memoria Island to locate her best friend, who’s gone missing.
This isn’t your typical side-scrolling puzzle platformer though. To make any progress, J.J. has to suffer all manner of harm, from dismemberment and immolation to electrocution and being crushed. Due to the island’s mysterious powers, J.J. can seemingly revive herself an infinite number of times. Why exactly is all of this happening? Where did her friend go?
You’ll have to actually play The Missing to find out. Published by Arc System Works, The Missing features a gorgeous art-style to offset the macabre premise. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart regardless, but if yet another unorthodox adventure from the oddball mind of Suehiro interests you, check it out today.
