Cooperative adventure game Blanc launches for Nintendo Switch and PC

Jerry on 2023-02-14
Cooperative adventure game Blanc by developer Casus Ludi is now available for Nintendo Switch, as well as Windows through Steam and the Epic Games Store.

The independent developer's announcement trailer premiered during June's Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase. Years in the making, Blanc depicts the journey of a wolf cub and a fawn stranded in a vast, snowy wilderness. Two players collaborate by controlling either companion through intuitive, text-free gameplay, either locally on the same screen or through online play.

All art for the game was completely hand-drawn on paper before translating those images into 3D graphics. Another stylistic choice informing the design of the game by creative director Rémi Gourrierec and illustrator Raphaël Beuchot was consciously limiting the protagonists' interactions to realistic animal behaviors.

A soundtrack bundle, featuring music by Louis Godart, is now available through Steam. The announcement trailer theme can be previewed on the composer's SoundCloud channel. Today's launch trailer can be viewed on the Gearbox YouTube channel.

From the product page:
Experience the poetic tale of a wolf cub and a fawn in the spectacular world of Blanc. Lost in a sudden snowstorm, they will have to lean on each other in order to follow the footprints their families left behind in the snow.

Immerse yourself in the stunningly beautiful black-and-white world of Blanc – completely hand-drawn on paper in 2D before coming to life in 3D. Blanc focuses on the journey and experience of the animals with text-free gameplay and storytelling, allowing players to dive completely into its wondrous world.
