'Ashwalkers' Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 25, 2022 @ 9:13 a.m. PST

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.

Ashwalkers is a melancholy narrative game offering an unprecedented amount of choice as players guide their party through its greyscale wasteland,” said Hervé Bonin, founder of Nameless XIII. “Its small, intimate scale makes it perfect for Switch, where you can hold it close to your face and easily put it in sleep mode for convenience. It’s such a good fit for Ashwalkers’ thoughtful, deliberately paced take on the survival genre.”

As well as being available for digital download on the Nintendo eshop, Dear Villagers are partnering with distributor Meridiem to release a special physical edition of Ashwalkers.

Ashwalkers - Survivor’s Edition will include a specially designed box and an art book illustrating some of the stunning black and white artwork from the game and a set of character stickers.
