Beautiful Desolation

2D isometric adventure game Beautiful Desolation, which first launched for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and GOG on February 26, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Switch, publisher Untold Tales and developer The Brotherhood announced. A release date was not announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via Untold Tales:

Beautiful Desolation is a 2D isometric adventure game set in the distant future.

Explore a post-apocalyptic landscape, solve puzzles, meet new friends and make powerful enemies, mediate conflicts and fight for your life as you unravel the secrets of the world around you.

Mark, a man out of time, searches for his lost brother Don, in a far-flung futuristic era ruled by highly advanced technologies which are both revered and reviled. Your surroundings hold echoes of a desolate past, and glimpses of a dark future that has yet to be written by your actions. Be prepared to face many tough choices that will shape this land long after you complete your journey.

The score is masterfully crafted by composer Mick Gordon, known for his work on Wolfenstein, DOOM, Prey, Killer Instinct, and Need for Speed.

The inhabitants of this world will help and hinder you, as you make new discoveries and navigate the spectacular African-inspired landscape.

Negotiate your passage with local leaders, healers and warriors, or find yourself embroiled in a battle against nanite swarms, enormous scorpions, and rocket-equipped robots.

From thriving villages to crumbling cities, petrified forests and bone-dry ocean beds, this strange new world holds a multitude of terrains to uncover, beautifully rendered in 2D isometric art.
