Embracelet is an upcoming adventure game by indie developer Machineboy. Machineboy may remember from Milky Way’s excellent Milkmaid. Embracelet has been well received on Steam and Nintendo Switch, and currently holds 86 and 80 respectively on Metacritic, so it will be released for iOS later this year.
The player requires an iOS device capable of iOS 13.0 or later to play the Embracelet on a mobile phone or tablet. The game adjusts the user interface for touchscreen play by adding on-screen controls.
The game itself is a story-driven adventure that tells the story of a young teenager who inherits a magical bracelet owned by his grandfather who grew up in a small Norwegian fishing village. This special bracelet is psychokinetic, and it’s up to the player to explore the island, discover the mystery behind this magical jewelery, and return it to its true owner.
Despite the magical side of the story, Embracelet also heralds the arrival of an era that addresses the challenges of growing with the challenges that small communities often face. It promises an uplifting, emotional adventure with many twists and turns. The ending may also change depending on how you interact with people.
According to the developers, it will take 3-6 hours for the game to complete. If you don’t want to wait for the iOS version, or if you’re an Android user looking for an emotional adventure game, it’s already available on Nintendo Switch and Steam.
Embracelet will be released on the App Store later this year for devices running iOS 13.0 or later. The developer hasn’t set the price yet, but it will be a premium title.
