Release Trailer (Nintendo Switch)
Embracelet is an exciting and emotional game set in a fictitious, Northern Norwegian universe where you play 17 year old Jesper who inherits a mysterious bracelet from his grandfather. You are given the task to return the bracelet to the island up north where he grew up, and on your journey you must use the magical abilities of the bracelet to solve puzzles.
As Jesper begins to piece together the mystery behind this curious artifact, he will also need to learn to deal with an unfamiliar community torn between old traditions and new, invasive industries. You get to know the two other teenagers on the island, Hermod and Karoline, who will challenge you with ethical and personal dilemmas.
At the same time the bracelet pulls you towards a dark secret, away from your friends and into a mysterious ghost world. Will you find out the secret behind the bracelet’s powers?
