While there has been no shortage of narrative-based indie titles, the beautiful and charming Wayward Strand is still an interesting prospect. This game looks to be a good addition to the Switch store's lineup of rich, story-based experiences. With a release date set for late July of this year, fans of narrative games will have an excellent new addition to their library.

Wayward Strand Release Date Information

Wayward Strand is an indie, storytelling game that centers around a student journalist traveling to a floating airship doubling as a retirement home. It's your job to explore the halls and buildings of the institution and gather stories of the various residents and hospice workers. Your goal is to wrangle all these stories out of a variety of people, with a variety of temperaments and personalities, and do your best to piece together a story with multiple sources of information (which is an experience I can personally relate to).


Fortunately, the game has a scheduled release, unlike games such as Cult of Lamb. At the time of writing the release date is set for July 21, 2022. The game will be available on all major consoles including the Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and all current-gen Xbox consoles.
