Shape Of The World, Zen World-Building Sim Announced For Nintendo Switch

Shape of the World

It’s not often you get to use “zen world-building sim” in a headline. It’s a rare occurrence given the fact that zen games are most times relegated to itch.io or the backwaters of mobile devices, and world-building simulators are oftentimes put into the category of city management games like SimCity or Tropico.

[Disclosure: A review copy was provided for the contents of this article]

Whilst I often find myself disillusioned by walking simulators, I do enjoy the very best of them, especially when there are horror themes or good stories to keep me interested. For example, both Layers of Fear and Outlast are among my favorites, whilst Gone Home and Firewatch also feature in my memory because of their exceptional and emotive storyline. I’ve often wondered how I’d feel about a walking sim that covers both these bases, ramping up the chilling scenes whilst underpinning them with a great story.
