'Ashwalkers' Gets Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on March 15, 2021 @ 8:38 a.m. PDT

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.

Society has collapsed, leaving no moral judgement of the choices they make; only their personal integrity will guide them to one of 34 possible endings. The branching story challenges players to make meaningful choices in complex ethical dilemmas while managing their food, medication and other supplies.

Set 200 years after the first geological disasters, a group of survivors called The Section set out into a devastated world. Their goal is to find a safe haven for their people, but to reach it they face a deadly journey through a post-apocalyptic wasteland.. Players will 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 they 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" says Hervé Bonin, cofounder of developer Nameless XIII. “Our ambition is to combine that sense of a detailed unfolding world with the interactivity of a video game, a game where every choice matters. The player feedback we have gotten for our public demo in the latest Steam Festival was extremely positive so we are super excited to let players explore the world of Ashwalkers.”

A demo of the game will also be playable for the first time in the upcoming Steam Game Festival (Feb. 3-9).
