Pixel Horror Game ‘Ellen’ Releasing on Nintendo Switch

Red Mount Media announced the release for their 2D pixel horror game Ellen on the Nintendo Switch. As announced yesterday on Reddit the game will release for Switch on September 13, just a smidgen over a month from now. Here is the trailer below along with a description of the game:

“If you don’t believe in paranormal events, meet the people from White Hill. It’s been years since all but the daughter in the Smiths’ family were found brutally murdered. The people of the town are getting uneasy as more and more witnesses have spoken about seeing the silhouette of a little girl standing in the house. Rumors spread that the silhouette has to be Ellen, the daughter of the Smith family, whose body was never found during the investigation of the murders. One year later, James, a bright and eager investigator, has taken matters into his own hands to reveal the truth of what happened that horrible night.”

Horror Game Ellen previously released in February on Steam, though with the game’s art style it will probably feel more at home on the Switch. It also seems to include great hallmarks of the more classic survival horror genre, so hopefully, we get a little bit of thinking with our scares. Hard to doubt it when the developer describes the game as a “pixel art horror game.” And it’s not the only horror game releasing on the Switch soon.

Ellen will be priced at $7.99 on the Switch eShop, and is currently priced at $9.99 on Steam. You can also follow developer Red Mount Media on Twitter.
