GAMEPLAY

It’s very simple, the player controls Lydia and interacts with items and characters. Several dialogue options are available and trigger different reactions but lead to the same final path.

VISUALS/AUDIO

A grim, oniric and anxious climate is set by gray-scale graphics hand-drawn by published graphic novel artist Henri Tervapuro and by an emotional music/voice composed by renowned film composer Juhana Lehtiniemi.

STORY

The tale of a girl who wishes for a happy childhood but can never have it. Grow up with Lydia, witness and try to understand the feelings, behaviours and events that moulded critical moments of her life. How may a little girl full of imagination perceive the twisted and manipulative family dynamics? How do you fight a monster you can’t see?

Lydia (Switch – eShop) comes out on January 17th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

UK Sales (2019)

GamesIndustry have shared Gfk data for the United Kingdom in 2019, which show a drop in sales for the first time since 2012. Here’s some raw data:

  • Sales of physical games: 17.6 million units (-19.8%) / £602.5 million (-21.7%)
  • Total sales: £3.77 billion (-3.4%)

The Top 10 below is quite interesting, because 4 of the games were released before 2019, which is due to a lower number of big hits last year.

1 FIFA 20 1,502,191 (1.9 million units sold last year)
2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1,192,211
3 Mario Kart 8: Deluxe 465,062 (+ 7 000 units compared to 2018)
