Visual novel Truer than You heading to Switch

Truer than You

Transcenders Media passed along its announcement that its upcoming project Truer than You is planned for Switch. It’ll be hitting the console sometime in 2025.

Truer than You is a visual novel and spiritual successor to the studio’s previous release, Knife Sisters. Players will guide gig worker Rin through a new job at a secretive company specializing in renting out actors for real-life situations, and face the challenge of balancing when to stick to the script or going full improv across a catalogue of unique situations.

Additional details can be found in the following overview:

While Rin, a non-binary 26-year-old, settles into their new job, they are free to make their own decisions about how they approach clients, with only a few rules to guide them and strict instructions not to expose themselves as an actor. From pretending to be someone’s date at a dinner party to filming anonymous videos for an activist group, Rin finds themselves dragged into a sequence of unusual events and meeting a series of fascinating characters with their own unique backstories.

But when the people you meet think you are someone else entirely, how do you know what’s real and what isn’t? Can you truly outrun your past by pretending to be someone else?

As Rin, you’ll be able to guide the story as you see fit by using Truer than You’s intelligent, flowing dialogue system, enabling you to decide when to speak and when to stay silent. From the beginning of the game, an emphasis on not having to immediately react, taking your time, and making your own decisions takes centre stage.
