Return of the Obra Dinn is an award-winning, monochromatic investigation game set on a spooky 19th-century ship, and it's heading to Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the fall. Obra Dinn landed on PC last October and gobbled a handful of prestigious awards, including a BAFTA for artistic achievement. Nintendo announced the Switch version during today's Nintendo Direct, and creator Lucas Pope confirmed the additional platforms on Twitter.

Obra Dinn is Pope's follow-up to Papers, Please, and it's a brilliantly detailed, fantastical, black-and-white take on the whodunit genre. In the game, players take on the role of an East Area Trading Company assessor who must figure out why, after five years lost at sea, the Obra Dinn has returned without its crew. The Memento Mortem stopwatch allows players to turn back time at the source of someone's death, providing insight into the ship's path and its passengers' demise.
