Manual Samuel on Nintendo Switch could prove that life is harder than you think
The game sounds like it could be a breath of fresh air... if you remember to press the right buttons.
In 2010, David Cage released an interactive adventure called Heavy Rain, which was memorable for (among other reasons) the fact that you could fail one of its scenes because you couldn't quite brush your teeth right or turn a doorknob. Those moments felt out of place and more than a little frustrating because of it, but now there's a whole game dedicated to such moments and it is coming to Nintendo Switch.
The game's premise is that you are a spoiled rich boy named Samuel who died in a car crash but got a new lease on life, courtesy of Death. If you want to avoid an early trip to hell, you have to survive an entire day while manually controlling your body's functions in a variety of scenarios.
