inkle -- the creators of 80 Days, Heaven's Vault, and last year's surprise hit Overboard! -- have pulled back the curtain on their next adventure, A Highland Song. The game is in development for PC and Nintendo Switch.

Check out the trailer here.

Enter the Highlands. Lose yourself. Find harmony. Reach the sea. A narrative adventure with rhythm and survival elements, from the creators of Heaven’s Vault and 80 Days.

The Story
Moira McKinnon has never seen the sea.

For fifteen years she’s lived with her mum in a small house on the edge of the Scottish Highlands—then one day she receives a letter from her Uncle Hamish urging her to come to the coast. If she can reach his lighthouse for the solstice, a wonderful surprise will be waiting…

And so, Moira runs away.

The World
In the Highlands, every peak has a story to tell and every valley echoes with song. Giants sleep, ghosts sing, crows carry messages, and eagles lift the dead.

But the Highlands’ crags are unforgiving and its summits are cold—Moira’s trek will not be easy.

Can you help her find a way across this beautiful, winding wilderness in time?

The Game
A Highland Song is a narrative adventure game from inkle, the creators of 80 Days, Heaven’s Vault, and last year's surprise hit Overboard!

Explore hills crisscrossed by routes—some well-trodden, others hidden away—that are filled with stories, lost things, echoes, and memories.

Climb peaks to orient yourself and plan your next steps. Then hop, slide, and jump through the valleys in time with the music.

And be prepared to make the journey more than once, because a single trip isn't nearly enough to discover the Highlands' deepest secrets.

This 2.5D side-scrolling adventure brings the Highlands to life with a blend of hand-drawn animation, impressionistic painted scenery, and dynamic lighting/weather effects.

The Music
The music in the game is provided by composer Laurence Chapman alongside two multi-award-winning giants of the Scottish folk scene, Talisk, and Fourth Moon. Royalty of the festival circuit, these two bands combine virtuosic instrumental playing with fast, inven


Happy Gaming!

Thanks Ana! The graphics look nice, but the game seems to be more of a sidescrolling platform game than an adventure game.
