Dear Esther is also coming to mobile devices for the first time since its release back in 2012. Sumo Digital and The Chinese Room confirmed that since it launched Dear Esther had sold over a million copies across the platforms it had been released on. Dear Esther is an exploration title where the story isn’t quite the same on each playthrough where players must piece together clues in the environment to get an idea of what is happening. A release date and price is yet to confirmed though the game is scheduled to arrive at some point in 2019.
