Perfectly Paranormal’s peculiar comedy Manual Samuel is also coming to Switch this summer, offering Nintendo players one of the wackiest titles to appear on the eShop yet! Following the exploits of an arrogant trust-fundee who makes a deal with Death following a fatal car accident, Samuel is given one last shot at life if he can make it through a single day having to manually manage even the most instinctive tasks.
Players will have to manually control Samuel’s walking, blinking, exhaling, and inhaling if they’re to guide this hilariously helpless human through an exciting day of getting dressed, drinking coffee, going to work, and navigating whatever hijinks ensue for a person incapable of peeing without the deepest of concentration and ninja-like reflexes.
Manual Samuel features multiple game modes, including a Time-Attack high-score challenge and a co-op mode, in which two players collaborate to guide Samuel through the day.
“Manual Samuel is such a humorous game, and the Switch’s portability makes it easier than ever to share its hilarious mishaps with friends,” said Jakub “Koobs” Klitenik, Product Manager. “Clumsily controlling Sam with a friend is a riot, there’s nothing on the Switch quite like it!”
