FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
It is finally time for shoot’em up lovers to try their skill on one of the most anticipated shooters of the year! After a successful promotional trip to Asia, attending Busan Indie Connect (Korea) and Tokyo Game Show (Japan), Manufacture 43 is releasing PAWARUMI in Early Access on Steam.
PAWARUMI is a modern take on the genre of shoot’em ups. Although the game is a pure shoot’em up experience it is not a Bullet Hell. The core gameplay is developed around a principle called the Trinity Mechanic. With a clever new use of the goold old Rock-Paper-Scissors, this mechanic allows the player to recharge its shield, charge up a Super Attack or increase its damage at any given time. This mechanic gives a new lease of life to the genre!
With a deep game system, that offers unlimited strategic opportunities, and shiny graphics blending pre-columbian inspiration with 90s pop culture aesthetics, PAWARUMI is a true tribute to the Dreamcast age of top down shooters.
The shoot'em up community has been building much expectations from PAWARUMI through the year. To make sure PAWARUMI lives up to everyone’s dreams, the devteam chose to go through a quick Early Access phase to harvest as much feedback as possible. It will help them improve the game quality even further for a final release around January 2018.
Being in Early Access means that the team will release regular updates with more content each time, and will be acting closely with the community to improve the overall game feeling to a highly polished level of quality. The communications with Manufacture 43 developers will go through Steam forums but also through their Discord server, open to everyone, and the usual social media reach out.
Manufacture 43 is an independent game studio based in Bordeaux, France, home to several well known game developers, such as Asobo Studio and Motion Twin. The three founding members, Alexandre, Charles & Daniel, two graphic artists and a programmer, have worked the past 8 years in the videogame industry before starting their own adventure. They sweat blood to offer the players original creations with sleek graphics and mechanics that capitalize on the legacy of the classics.
