Pine Studio announced that their upcoming game, The Academy: The First Riddle, will be released on PC, iOS, and Android on June 19, 2020. Following that will be a PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch release later in the summer. The Academy: The First Riddle is heavily inspired by series such as Harry Potter and Professor Layton – Harry Potter for the Hogwarts like setting and Professor Layton for the colorful puzzles.
The game will place players in the shoes of Sam, a freshman at Arbor’s famed, yet mysterious, Academy. Over the course of this roughly 20-hour adventure, fans will sink their teeth into over 200 puzzles and riddles scattered across the campus. The puzzles will guide the players through the central story of the game and the mystery looming over the school. When fans aren’t busy unraveling the school’s past, they’ll be able to engage in a host of fun activities with an array of memorable characters.
The Academy: The First Riddle will launch June 19 on PC and Mac via Steam for $19.99, on Google Play, and the App Store for $9.99. The title will arrive to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch later this summer.
