Suddenly releasing a Shakespeare game on Nintendo Switch? Although this is crazy, there are methods in ‘t. You see, something’s broken in the state of Denmark, and you have to fix it in Ryan North’s Exist or not exist, a video game adaptation extremely popular graphic novels, developed by Tin Man Games.
“Wait,” you say. “Where do I know that name, Ryan North?” Do you know that, most likely, from Dinosaur ComicsOr because he’s a successful and award-winning manga writer with his work Adventure Time and Invincible squirrel girl, or maybe because To Be Or Not To Be is a Extremely popular Kickstarter project with illustrations by other interesting cartoonists like Kate Beaton and KC Green and David Hellmann’s Second mission and Braid reputation? Is it one of them?
The To Be Or Not To Be video game is out right away, and you can choose between Hamlet, Ophelia, and Ghost Of Hamlet’s Dad, deciding to go with the plot or go extravagant off the rails with pirates and time travel and all the other stuff that Shakespeare was TOO HUGE to put in.
TBONTB costs $6.99 / £6.99 / €7.99 on the eShop and includes narration and achievements etc. according to the North. Now, the only question is: to buy or not to buy?
