Revealed during Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase earlier this year, I Am Dead has an official release date. The Nintendo Switch timed-exclusive will accept island visitors starting on Thursday, October 8th.



In an official press release:

Developed by Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg, the creators best known for Hohokum and Wilmont’s Warehouse, and published by Annapurna Interactive, I Am Dead follows the story of Morris Lupton, a recently deceased museum curator on the tiny island of Shelmerston. Morris is reunited with the ghost of his dog Sparky, only to discover that disaster is about to destroy his beloved island. Together, the duo must uncover ancient mysteries to prevent the island’s volcano from erupting and save their home.”


You can pre-order I Am Dead on the Nintendo eShop right now for $17.99 (a 10% discount). Now comes the hard part, waiting for another two weeks before we can discover the charming tales that Shelmerston holds.
