Emotional Adventure My Brother Rabbit Available on Nintendo Switch!

KATOWICE, POLAND – Sept. 21, 2018 – My Brother Rabbit, the heartwarming adventure game from Artifex Mundi, explores children’s incredible power to cope with gloom through imagination on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac today.

Sudden illness overcomes a family’s cherished daughter. While the parents work hard to seek out the best treatment to help their child, their son takes it upon himself to help his sister cope with the cold and unfamiliar hospital. A combination of love for his sister, earnest imagination, and a beloved stuffed toy rabbit enables him to create a wondrous landscape and story to comfort her.

Through the lens of make-believe, the rabbit is a living denizen in a brilliant, surreal world. His friend flower is similarly ill, so he sets out on a voyage to help her. No obstacle can stop him on his quest to find the cure to her ailments. Clues and items necessary to progress hide behind every leaf and in every corner. Once found, these objects unlock over 30 entertaining puzzles including building fantastical vehicles to continue the rabbit’s trek.

As the rabbit edges ever closer toward his destination, the imaginary world increasingly incorporates details from the children’s true surroundings. Though the circumstances are grim and the unfamiliar hospital can feel sterile, they pull from what they see and twist it into a positive light. An aquarium becomes an aquatic adventure, and the doctor becomes a sweet bear eager to heal the flower. Perspective is everything, and their youthful eyes perpetuate hope even when the world is scary.

A melancholy score dreamt up by Arkadiusz Reikowski (Layers of Fear, Seven: The Days Long Gone) and Emi Evans (NieR: Automata, Dark Souls) accompanies My Brother Rabbit’s awe-inspiring, hand-painted vistas. Lush sights and sounds drive home how creative children can be when creating entire worlds in their noggins. With no spoken dialogue or written words throughout, the ethereal soundtrack and the universal of languages of love and commitment guide players on this magical quest.

“As strange as the pretend world is in My Brother Rabbit, children’s innate ability to perceive the world in amazing ways is very real,” said Łukasz Sałata, lead artist at Artifex Mundi. “Our own children helped us create the game, and we are ecstatic to finally share their creativity with players.”

My Brother Rabbit is available for $14.99 in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Turkish on Nintendo Switch, Steam, Windows Store, Mac App Store, GOG, Humble Store, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One now.

Heartwarming Adventure My Brother Rabbit Coming Sept. 21 To Nintendo Switch!

KATOWICE, POLAND – Sept. 6, 2018 – My Brother Rabbit, the heartwarming adventure game from Artifex Mundi, invites players on an emotional trip into the dreamlands of imagination on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch September 21.

After their beloved daughter falls ill, a family hopes to restore her health with the treatment she needs. Her caring older brother wants to help however he can and turns to the power of imagination and wonder to help take her mind off serious matters. While life appears dreary and cruel, the fantastic and surreal world conjured up by the children offers a wonderful reprieve.

In the siblings’ land of make-believe, a sweet little rabbit takes care of his friend flower, who recently became afflicted by a strange sickness. To reach those who can heal her, he sets out on a journey that requires both a keen eye and smart thinking. Collect hidden objects including butterflies, insectoid lightbulbs, and other items and apply them to the riddles hiding throughout the world.

After observing each area and uncovering secret objects, these items are used in over 30 minigames. Some are as simple as connecting threads in a color-matching game. More complex puzzles involves repairing a fantastical musical machine. Each part adds another musical layer to the song emitting from the device, until a full symphony heralds the rabbit’s triumph.

As the rabbit gets closer to making his friend flower better, the joyful scenery begins to blend with the cold hospital surrounding the children. Though their situation is dark, the children use their creativity as a torch to light their way out. Kids have the incredible ability to explain what they don’t understand. This isn’t a way to ignore what they fear, but to instead both cope and understand the strange ways of an ever-changing world. The game’s designers worked with their own children to better understand they way they perceive our reality.

My Brother Rabbit’s gorgeously bizarre hand-painted landscapes are reminiscent of Dali, and the surreality is underscored further by the music. Arkadiusz Reikowski of Layers of Fear and Seven: The Days Long Gone fame penned an inspiring score that helps accentuate the whimsical delights of this world. Players will delve into their imagination and experience an emotional connection like no other.

“We feel that players will form a bond with the children in My Brother Rabbit because of their enduring spirit,” said Tomasz Grudziński, CEO at Artifex Mundi. “Though this story begins with a tragedy, these children always hope for a brighter future.”

My Brother Rabbit will be available for $14.99 on Nintendo Switch, Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One September 21.
