Fantasy metroidvania Nara: Facing Fire blends Hollow Knight and Ori

By - | Views: 14,616

Love games like Hollow Knight, Ori and Celeste? Well, you're going to want to take a look at Nara: Facing Fire as it takes inspiration from all of them.

"In a world where a mysterious energy known as Va flows through and connects all living beings, a child with the power to command this energy was born. As the last of her kind, young Nara must unravel the dark secrets of her power and face the flames and shadows that took someone special from her."

It will arrive with Native Linux support, although a release is a while away yet as they plan a Kickstarter next month and given how other similar games have done so well, I would expect this to get funded easily. You can see their first teaser trailer below:

Looks nice. I am a sucker for a good metroidvania and the style looks good. Hopefully the story is good too.

(I don't do early access/kickstarter, though.)
