HomeBearStudio have revealed that the Kickstarte, for the very charming graphic adventure NAIRI has been completely funded. With the main funding target met, the team plan to reveal stretch goals for the game in tonight’s campaign update. Joshua van Kuilenburg, project lead at HomeBearStudio, spoke about being successfully funded, saying:
“With NAIRI now funded and Greenlit on Steam, we’d like to start sharing what we have planned for stretch goals. By reaching these, it would allow us to further immerse players into a living and breathing world and really enrichen the exotic city of Shirin. We’re excited to be announcing our plans in tonight’s update.”
The game is expected to have a number of features upon release, including:
- A classic graphic adventure
- Exploring a fleshed out world full of fun characters, with dark and deep dungeons with devilish puzzles.
- A compelling story with strong character development.
- Charming, unique visuals and an awesome soundtrack.
NAIRI tells the story of an abandoned upper-class girl who meets Rex, a criminal-turned-scholar. Together, they adventure through the animal-inhabited oasis city of Shirin. Become familiar with Nairi and Rex while uncovering the dark history and mysteries of an oasis based city, Shirin! The city’s infrastructure – water supply and sanitation, social class differences and more are all considered within the environment, without taking away from the quirky and unique fantasy setting. Drawing inspiration by works such as The Last Airbender, Toy Story and Spirited Away, the light tone of NAIRI’s story is juxtaposed with a strong focus on character development, with a darker overarching theme.
