Publisher and developer Wonderland Kazakiri have revealed a new puzzle RPG called Cassette Boy. It’s releasing on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in 2024. Pricing and the exact launch window are unknown at this moment.

At first glance, the 2D pixel art visuals of Cassette Boy are reminiscent of the Game Boy’s graphical style. If you look closer, though, the environment is actually complex and formed in 3D. The map can be rotated and viewed from different angles to uncover hidden items, solve puzzles, and find your way through mysterious places. 

Overview of Cassette Boy

Is the moon still there when I’m not looking at it?

If it isn’t…will the people I love disappear if I stop looking at them?

Is the moon still up in the sky when you aren’t looking at it?

Maybe this world only exists when you’re there to look at it.

What looks like a simple 2D world is actually a complex, deep place with more dimensions than you can see at a glance.

You could go up, climb down, maybe even turn around…

The only truth is what you can see. So change the world into the shape you want it to be and adventure through its mysterious lands.

Cassette Boy is a puzzle RPG in which the world looks like a 2D dot graphic, but it is actually 3D.

It is a puzzle RPG in which the map can be rotated and viewed from various angles to solve puzzles.

Using the Schrodinger system, objects that are hidden by walls or other objects disappear when the map is rotated.

You can proceed through the stages by erasing or displaying the objects you need.

Of course, there are enemies and boss monsters, so grab your weapon and fight them.

Find items, solve puzzles, defeat monsters, and solve the mysteries of the world!

-The Schrödinger System-

The state of matter is only defined once you observe it.

In Cassette Boy‘s world, what you can’t observe doesn’t exist. In other words, the only thing that matters is what you can see on the screen.

Yes, even the people you just talked to. They don’t exist unless you’re observing them.

Flip the world around and bring things in and out of existence.

Retro RPG Cassette Boy will make its way to PS5, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2024. The screenshots shown above are a mere peek at what to expect from this title; there are no gameplay videos available from the developer at present. Stay tuned to RPGFan for more indie title announcements.
