Two games from Untold Tales are coming to PS4 and Switch
Untold Tales' The Hong Kong Massacre and Beautiful Desolation

Ex-Techland veterans join forces and form the Untold Tales, an indie publishing label with a focus on games that have an interesting story to tell, and two of their games are coming to PS4 and Switch.

BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION is a beautiful 2D isometric adventure game set in the distant future, where players can explore a post-apocalyptic landscape, solve puzzles, meet new friends, and make powerful enemies, mediate conflicts and fight for their lives as they unravel the secrets of the world around them. 

The story follows a man called Mark, a man out of time, who searches for his lost brother Don, in a far-flung futuristic era ruled by highly advanced technologies that are both revered and reviled. 

The world hold echoes of a desolate past, and glimpses of a dark future that has yet to be written by the player's actions. One should be prepared to face many tough choices that will shape this land long after the journey is completed. 

The music in Beautiful Desolation is masterfully crafted by composer Mick Gordon, known for his work on hits like Wolfenstein, DOOM, Prey, Killer Instinct, and Need for Speed.

The game is coming to PS4 and Switch, after the PC (Gog, Steam) version launched on February 26, but Untold Tales have yet to announce the release date for PS4 and Switch.

THE HONG KONG MASSACRE  is inspired by classic action movies, and it places you at the center of a hard-boiled revenge story, filled with brutal, cinematic shootouts and vivid underworld locations. 

Players take the role of a former police detective bent on exacting vengeance for his partner’s murder and use of a mixture of raw firepower, slow-motion shooting accompanied by dive/dodge mechanics to tear their way through the criminal ranks. 

Players must be aware of their surroundings all the time and exploit the environment to stay alive: dive through windows or dodge behind cover, as every bullet is lethal. Although limited, time can be slowed-down to plan the next move, or avoid bullets flying around. 

Each level features a range of challenges, allowing to unlock new weapons as you progress, trading bullets from restaurants to rooftops across a moody, crime-riddled city. 

It was also released on the PC early this year (January), and now it's announced for PS4 and Switch too.

The Nintendo Switch gamers should keep an eye on these two titles, as they are one of those beautiful indie games that are just so satisfying to play on the Switch console.
