Nairi: Tower of Shirin is a creation of HomeBearStudio which is being released on November 29, 2018 for the platforms of Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows.
The game is style point n' click adventure. For those who don't know, it's the same as the games Telltale like The Walking Dead, that is, point and click. According to the company's director, Joshua van Kuilenburg, is inspired by Pixar and Anime.
Nairi: Tower of Shirin follows a journey of self-knowledge by Nairi, a little girl who has lived her whole life protected in the noble part of her hometown, until an incident ends up throwing her in the suburbs, a dangerous region, dominated by gangs and full of strange people.
To turn around in this new reality, Nairi ends up making friends with a gang member who sympathizes with the girl's situation. Together, they will unravel secrets and mysteries surrounding the city tower, while trying to get Nairi home.
Completely hand-drawn, the beautiful look of Nairi: Tower of Shirin is its strong point. With several items, puzzles ranging from very simple and some more complicated and a first-rate soundtrack, the game is interesting, despite the simplicity.
However, the long dialogues unfortunately make the game tiring, as they are made as static animations. This style of drawing has no problem when it is used in chats that put the player in action, that is, making choices with the character. Only in this case, they are just scenes in which the player will be just clicking and reading the story. The fact that it does not have a subtitled version
The challenges are simple and logical. Some are very evident, others more hidden as something behind a curtain and even those who need other items to be used.
Anyway, Nairi: Tower of Shirin is an interesting and fun game if you don't want to spend hours in front of the screen. And yet, he keeps his curiosity in knowing what will happen to the character, such as a good Pixar animation and Anime adventures.
