Due to release on Nintendo Switch and Steam, Nairi Tower of Shirin is a special fusion of point and click adventure puzzle game with stunning visuals and a cast that brings its own unique quality. They promise that it’ll be ieally suited to the Nintendo Switch.
Full of adorable visuals and characters, Nairi will find you dropped into a troubled world that is sure to delight anyone looking for a strong narrative and puzzle experience. Following Nairi, a troubled upper class girl, and Rex, a gangster-turned-scholar, you will get to uncover a dark mystery involving the mysterious Tower of the oasis city of Shirin.
Nairi is a young woman from the rich district of Shirin, the oasis city where the game takes place. When a sudden incident forces her to abandon her rich, sheltered life, she ends up in the seedy lower district of the city ruled by gangs.
Joshua van Kuilenburg, founder of HomeBearStudio said “Nairi meets a gangster-turned-scholar rat, who will help her on her quest to find her way back home. The poor district is plagued by The White Mask, a criminal who seemingly brainwashes people. And then there’s a conflict which goes way beyond Nairi’s initial plight of simply returning home. There’s an ominous mystery surrounding the titular Tower of Shirin.”
“We were going for a unique setting and art style, inspired not just by Japanese anime but also the likes of Disney and Pixar. The game comes across as endearing, rather than ‘childishly cute’.”
