DONTNOD co-founder and Life is Strange co-creator Hervé Bonin’s new studio Nameless XIII and publisher Dear Villagers have revealed that their upcoming post-apocalyptic survival title, Ashwalkers, is releasing for Steam on April 15, 2021.

Hervé Bonin, cofounder of developer Nameless XIII, had this to say regarding this title’s eventual release:

‘We are huge fans of ‘Choose your own adventure books. 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.”

Set 200 years after the first geological disasters, four adventurers, known as The Section, cross a ravaged Earth, with society having collapsed. They aim to find a haven for the people, but that proves to be an exceedingly challenging task.

  • Make meaningful and difficult decisions in complex moral dilemmas.
