We’re all saddened by the death of Miiverse, and even Splatoon 3’s attempt to bring it back won’t ease the pain of not being able to sample the delights of one-bit art from around the world. But One Night Stand developer Kinmoku announced today that its next game, videoverseit is directly inspired by Miiverse, and now we just hope that, unlike the real Miiverse, it will come to Switch.

Videoverse is set in the early days of the Internet, and anyone who remembers old technology like Teletext, MSN Messenger, and the chaotic 90s Internet that was a pastiche in Hypnospace Outlaw will find themselves catapulted to Nostalgia Town by the game’s design:

The game is a narrative decision-based adventure that takes place over about six hours of playtime. You’ll play as Emmett, a video game-obsessed teenager, as he explores the online community, makes friends, shares artwork, and even denounces trolls. And yes, just like on the real internet, he can choose his own avatar and set his own personal quote. EVEN IF YOU WANT YOUR QUOTE from him to LOOK LIKE THIS.

Videoverse has no set release date or confirmation on which platforms it will hit, but it’s got be on the only Nintendo console, right? We will only have to perform a summoning ritual with a group of pink Tamagotchis, Furbies and iMac G3 in a pentagram…
