'Nairi: Tower of Shirin' Also Comes to Switch - Screens & Trailer

Nairi: Tower of Shirin is a special fusion of point & click adventure puzzle game with stunning graphics and a cast that gives it its own unique quality.

The game is full of adorable visuals and characters, within a troubled world that is sure to delight anyone looking for a strong narrative and puzzle experience. The player follows Nairi, a troubled upper class girl, and Rex, a gangster-turned-scholar, as they 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'.”

Nairi: Tower of Shirin will be playable at Another Indie's GDC booth at PL4316.

Key Features:

  • Enjoy a huge amount of ridiculously cute hand-drawn charming characters and locations
  • An absorbing and captivating story
  • Collect, trade and combine wacky items
  • Solve brain-teasing puzzles
  • A beautifully composed soundtrack

Originally announced for PC in 2016, Nairi: Tower of Shirin will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
