Recently released on the Nintendo Switch by Sometimes You, The Mooseman tells the stories of an old Pagan religion and its beliefs. In order to navigate this two-dimensional living cave painting, you’ll need to utilize the Mooseman’s ability to phase between worlds.
The Mooseman is almost a walking simulator, but there are minor interactions with the environment. There isn’t much action, but a few of the puzzling situations you come across may give you a bit of a challenge. For the most part it is an educational game, as every checkpoint you come across is a totem that will give you folklore from the tribes in Northern Europe. There are also collectibles to go through and find in the game that represent actual artifacts from the era.
If you are interested in picking up The Mooseman, I’d definitely recommend grabbing it on the Nintendo Switch. It’s great to be able to take a game like this on the go, and it’s easily playable in short sessions.
