Publisher All In! Games and developer Black Sail Games just announced NYX: The Awakening at Gamescom.
NYX, the titular character and wicked goddess of the night, loves to kidnap unsuspecting people and torture them in distorted versions of their home cities. At least, this is what she USED to do with her time until around 1985 or so, when she made the mistake of taking a feisty redhead named Vicky.
While NYX’s other captors just spent their time running and screaming, Vicky fights back! With her laser sword (where’d she get that?) she slices monsters and makes mincemeat of bosses. And she’s coming for NYX!
– Unique arcade gameplay based on a well-crafted color swapping mechanic
– Epic combat action against various distinct types of enemies
– Challenging platform and environmental puzzles
– Neo-retro neon visuals and audio, resembling a contemporary take on 80’s synth wave classic Sci-Fi and Fantasy media
NYX: The Awakening is scheduled for a 2020 release on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC. This early teaser doesn’t reveal what the game looks like; hopefully those details are coming soon.
A North American town in the ‘80s – NYX, the ancient goddess of night, has captured yet another mortal soul to torment. This time it’s someone she should have stayed away from, someone who can fight back!
Vicky refuses to obey the rules of this twisted version of her life and rises against the wicked godly regime of terror.
Help Vicky to stand against nightmarish enemies, overcome dangerous traps and discover the truth about her life, hidden behind this shady facade. Immerse yourself in this world and discover all the tributes and references to pop-cultural classics of that neon decade!
