FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A year ago, freshly founded french studio Manufacture 43 started working on their first game: PAWARUMI. After eleven months of intense work on their original shoot'em up, the team at Manufacture 43 is thrilled to finally announce that PAWARUMI is on Steam Greenlight!
IN A WORLD where the mayan civilization rules with an iron fist, you play as Axo, pilot of the legendary ship Chukaru. Experience her fight with the Council and its limitless armies, become the master of Chukaru's powers and find the meaning behind your actions. A dark secret is yet to be revealed!
Taking the simple mechanic of rock-paper-scissors one step further, Pawarumi enables the player to do double damage, heal itself or recharge its super attack simply by shooting with one of the three weapons against one of the three types of enemies. This mechanic enables countless ways and strategies to handle each level, first to beat the game, then to reach the top of the leaderboard!

Manufacture 43 developers, while still very much focused on the game, are working on a kickstarter campaign for Pawarumi. This campaign will be the only way to get a physical copy of the game and a great way for the fans to support this new developer. Get ready to back this original shoot'em up and get some sweet exclusive perks, early in 2017!
