Indie developer HomeBearStudio Tuesday revealed plans to release its upcoming point-and-click adventure, Nairi: Tower of Shirin, is set for release on Nov. 29th, 2018.
Launching simultaneously on Nintendo Switch and Steam, the game tells the story of Nairi, a young girl from the rich district of Shirin. A sudden incident forces her to abandon her rich, sheltered life, and she eventually ends up in the seedy lower district of the city ruled by gangs. Nairi meets a former gang member called Rex, who joins her throughout their adventure as they uncover a dark mystery involving the mysterious Tower of the oasis city of Shirin.
"It's been an exciting and creative time for the team developing a game with not only with a unique setting, and strong and endearing cast, but one inspired by many facets, including Japanese anime but also Disney Pixar. A synergy with so many ideas, strong storyline and tantalising puzzles, plus appealing to a wide audience with compelling gameplay has been our goal. We believe that we have achieved this through our love of the adventure genre . We wanted to offer something a little bit special - NAIRI: Tower of Shirin - is the result,” says Joshua van Kuilenburg, founder of HomeBearStudio. "NAIRI: Tower of Shirin is a point and click adventure puzzle game that offers up stunning graphics, engaging cast, superb audio, powerful narrative and puzzles that are a seamless part of the appealing storyline.”
Nairi: Tower of Shirin is rated PEGI-3. The ESRB does not yet list any rating information for this title.
