Walking simulators that have horror elements are a bit of a mess on the Switch and while Mundaun has a far more interesting art style and general feel than many of the lesser examples of the genre on the system that isn’t to say it doesn’t have issues. The great hand-drawn black-and-white aesthetic fits the pretty empty and bleak space you’ll find yourself in, though the barrenness of the environments doesn’t always feel so stylistic as just lacking in detail. If you’re looking for jump scares and thrills you’ll also want to steer clear as this relies more on tension and a growing sense of dread than pop scares, so just be sure to have an idea of what to realistically expect in terms of play. The exploration and puzzles can be a bit obtuse and leave you meandering about wondering what to do next at times but on the whole the experience is surely a unique one, and that at least has some merit.
