Assemble Entertainment and developer TriTrie Games announced that their investigative full-motion video (FMV) title Jessika, is now available on the Nintendo Switch. Featuring found footage, the game’s story takes a series of twists and turns covering a range of emotions.
Presented as a tale of terrible loss, mysterious circumstances, and the apparent suicide of the title’s character Jessika, the game examines the lengths one will go to cover up their mistakes. For players, they can expect to experience an emotional journey that ranges from loss to obsession in this gripping tale.
A father is convinced that his daughter’s death was not suicide. To prove his belief right, the father hires a private investigator or rather the player. Now hired, players must probe into the suspicious suicide and the events leading up to the moment. Using only a laptop, the investigation journeys through the victim’s digital footprint and pieces together the tangled web of events that unfolded leading to the apparent suicide.

As part of the Ubisoft Education initiative, this category aims to prepare promising new developers for an extensive career in the video games industry. Additionally the game was showcased at Gamescom Digital 2020 in the Indie Arena Booth.
Jessika is available now on the Nintendo Switch from the Nintendo Store for $14.99 USD. A limited time 20% off discount is available on the Nintendo Store.
