Ashwalkers is a survival journey through a harsh world without rules or judgement, where only the player's choices matter in the face of moral dilemmas.

Set 200 years after the first geological disasters a group of survivors called The Section set out into a ravaged world. Their goal is to find a safe haven to their people, but to reach it they face a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of complex moral dilemmas. Get to know the intimate dynamics, relationships and tensions between the brave captain of the group Petra, the pragmatic fighter Sinh, the young optimistic scholar Kali and the cautious scout Nadir as you travel the end of the world. 

The non-linear story challenges players to make meaningful choices in complex moral dilemmas. Players will have to manage their party's food and equipment and find their way through a dynamic narrative survival sim with 34 possible endings.

Seek and harvest vital resources in the wild and keep your group alive.

“We are huge fans of "Choose your own adventure books" and wanted to combine their often incredibly detailed and captivating worlds with the interactivity of an adventure video game.”, says Hervé Bonin, cofounder of developer Nameless XIII. “We found the post-apocalyptic setting offers the unique position to confront players with their own morality stripped of any rules or judgment from the real world. The game is really about questioning yourself and your own actions and decisions when faced with complex choices that are not black and white - it’s like peering into the dark corners of your own morality and finding out what’s lurking in the shadows.”
