Being selected to be part of the 60 independant developers of the now
famous Indie Arena Booth was a great opportunity for Manufacture 43. It was
the perfect event to start showcasing the pre-alpha of their original shoot’em
up to the world.
In the ocean of people that Gamescom is, the three developers gathered feedback from hundreds of gamers that lined up to try Pawarumi during the week. People were really pleased by the deep yet intuitive gameplay system, the handling and the art of the game.
Some of the visitors were instantly addicted and came back many times just to beat their score. For the developers, it was a good sign for the release next year.
Even after an exhausting week, the team didn’t rest and continued
improving the game. Visitors of Animasia could enjoy an even more
polished experience and had the chance to play a whole new level of the game.
With a mainly younger audience, Animasia proved that Pawarumi appeals to everyone. New players fell in love with the game and, again, came back multiple times throughout the event to improve their score. Another good sign for the release.
Pawarumi is a modern take on the genre of shoot’em ups. With an intuitive yet deep game system and shiny graphics, it aims to appeal to hardcore fans as well as people who might have felt left out of the genre because of its traditionally insane difficulty. Pawarumi is scheduled for release on PC early next year and later on consoles. Discover more on pawarumi.com !
