Netherlands based indie developers at HomeBearStudio have announced today that the release date for their point-and-click fantastic adventure NAIRI: Tower Of Shirin will be available from November 29th, simultaneously on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

With some eye-catching hand drawn art style, a mysterious story to uncover and a genre that has been delivering pretty engaging titles, NAIRI: Tower Of Shirin configures a very interesting choice for indie enthusiasts looking for a new, narrative driven fantasy tale.

“It’s been an exciting and creative time for the team developing a game with not only with a unique setting, and strong and endearing cast, but one inspired by many facets, including Japanese anime but also Disney Pixar. A synergy with so many ideas, strong storyline and tantalising puzzles, plus appealing to a wide audience with compelling gameplay has been our goal. We believe that we have achieved this through our love of the adventure genre. We wanted to offer something a little bit special – NAIRI: Tower of Shirin – is the result.” Joshua van Kuilenburg, founder of HomeBearStudio said. “NAIRI: Tower of Shirin is a point and click adventure puzzle game that offers up stunning graphics, engaging cast, superb audio, powerful narrative and puzzles that are a seamless part of the appealing storyline.”
