Ashwalkers: A Survival Journey Developer Announces April 15 Release

Development studio Nameless XIII has announced the release date of its upcoming post-apocalyptic survival game Ashwalkers: A Survival Journey on April 15, 2021.


Ashwalkers
takes place 200 years after a volcano destroys most of the planet. Your job is to survive in this wasteland with your squad of four through deadly environmental conditions that include acid rain and huge storms of volcanic ash.

While the game is story-driven, it’s not a linear narrative. Probably one of the most interesting parts of this game is the fact that you can play through a possible 34 different endings, each said to provide around 2 hours of gameplay.

But these endings aren’t simple forks in the road; much of the path your main character will take is based on relationships you build with your squadmates. Their feelings and responses to your actions will drive the plot in different directions each time.

The game, once known by its working title, Cendres, is being led by Life is Strange co-creator Hervé Bonin and has so far only been announced for PC on Steam, although a console edition is possible in the future.


“We are huge fans of ‘Choose your own adventure books,’” Bonin said. “Our ambition is to combine that sense of a detailed unfolding world with the interactivity of a video game — a game where every choice matters.”

Ashwalkers was included in last month’s Steam Game Festival where players got to try the game out for the first time. Nameless XIII reported “extremely positive” feedback from those play sessions.
