Shockwork Games Announces Nadir
Alder’s Blood developer Shockwork Games has announced its newest project Nadir. The game is a roguelike inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy and is being developed for PC and Nintendo Switch, with PlayStation and Xbox console releases under consideration. The game will undergo a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, though the campaign launch date has not been announced.
Nadir puts players in charge of three powerful characters, each representing one of the deadly sins. The game is set in the eponymous city of Nadir, which is home to the souls of the damned and has multiple layers extending into the abyss, with a great power lying at the bottom. The game features procedurally-generated maps, fast-paced combat, and a monochrome graphical style.
