Having launched Nightmarchers’s crowdfunding campaign earlier this week, Wyrmbyte has begun introducing some of the gods that players will meet during their sojourn through post-apocalyptic Hawaii.
Goddess of Fire, Pele, is the subject of the latest update, with a new video introducing her situation and some of the skills that players will gain access to by undertaking her quest line.
At the beginning of the game, Pele is trapped by the adversarial god Kamapua’a, with her powers being used to corrupt the inhabitants of the island. Players will be able to free her from her bondage and, in return, will gain access to elemental attacks, including Volcanic Eruption and Lightning Strike, both of which are capable of being upgraded to deal massive amounts of damage. The video below shows off these skills in action:
Pele is the second god to be introduced thus far. The first was Kū, the God of War. His video suggests that he is the first of the Akua that Kai meets on his quest, and will be the one to grant the protagonist access to the godly powers, as well as an astral bow.
Nightmarchers takes place on a post-apocalyptic version of Oahu, where a calamitous event has destroyed society and allowed the boar-god Kamapua’a to return to the human realm with the intention of claiming control. Players will take control of Kai, a descendant of kahuna, as he embarks on a quest to defeat Kamapua’a.
At the time of writing, the game had raised 33% of its $100,000 funding goal with 28 days left of the campaign. OnlySP recently had a chance to talk to the title’s designer, Scott Brown, and that interview will be available later this weekend.
