Lucas Pope’s celebrated puzzle game Return of the Obra Dinn is currently exclusive to PC, but that is changing soon. Pope announced on Twitter that the swashbuckling game will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 18.
The London-based Warp Digital handled the console versions of Obra Dinn. According to Pope, the different console versions have “feature and performance parity” across all versions.

All the heavy lifting to get it on consoles is being handled by @WarpDigitalUK, who hit feature and performance parity on all platforms. Harder than it might look for a 1-bit 800×450 game.

GameSpot picked Return of the Obra Dinn as one of the best games of 2018. In the game, you play as an insurance adjuster working for the East India Company in the early 19th century. Your job is to discover the fates of all 60 crew members and passengers aboard the Obra Dinn, which was lost at sea only to drift back to harbor several years later with no one on board alive.
