Indie developer HomeBearStudio is gracing us with a brand-new point and click adventure game called NAIRI: Tower of Shirin and announced that the game will see the light of day on November 28th 2018 on Nintendo Switch and Steam.
The plot of the game is set around a young spoiled girl named Nairi, who is forced to abandon her lavish lifestyle due to unknown circumstances, only to end up in a district of the city dominated by gangs. Things unfold when she meets Rex, a former gang member who joins Nairi in a quest to uncover the secrets of a mysterious tower that surrounds the city.
Check out the launch trailer of NAIRI: Tower of Shirin, featuring some gameplay footage on the Switch:
“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.” Joshua van Kuilenburg, founder of HomeBearStudio reflected. “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.”
The player follows 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.
