FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Since January 2016, Manufacture 43, a french indie studio, is dedicated to the creation of Pawarumi, a brand new original shoot’em up that aims to push the classic genre in a new direction.
The project originates from an envy of the team to pay tribute to the games they used to play.
Pawarumi is an arcade inspired shoot’em up with a modern twist and which stays true to the legacy of what made the genre popular in the early ages of video game history. While offering a satisfying experience to newcomers thanks to beautiful graphics and easy to pick up gameplay, it also offers an interesting challenge for those seeking deep mechanics that offers many strategic opportunities.
Now being close to the end of production, Manufacture 43 is going for the final push and asking for support to fund the final touches on the game.
The developers at Manufacture 43 are constantly listening to their players since they started prototype testing in march 2016. Thanks to community interactions through social medias and events like Köln’s Gamescom, they never stopped improving the game to satisfy a large amount of gamers from experienced ones to more casuals players.
Players are loving the game and keep following the progress of the development thanks to a strong online presence of the developers. The result of this bond with the community was a successful greenlight campaign with a validation obtained in less than a week. Since then The community around Pawarumi never stopped growing and the game is now awaited from players all around the world.
As the project release is already assured, the developers are asking the community a bit more funds to help them make the game even more awesome: better cutscenes, game modes and overall polish. It’s also another opportunity for the team to communicate closely with their community via a private discord channel. Last but not least, it will be the only place to put your hands on a physical version of Pawarumi for a fair price as the team wants it to be accessible.
The campaign is starting this week and will end a month later. Stretch goals may appear depending on the success of the campaign.
While the developers will support the campaign with updates and communities interactions, they will go on with the game development as well as attending a few events to promote their game. The next event will be EGX Rezzed in London at the end of March. Players can meet them on the stand GGJ13 : 5. There will be t-shirt to win for those with the best score everyday at 12:00 and 17:30 but they should be prepared for tough competition !
