PAWARUMI is a modern take on the genre of shoot’em up’s coming to Steam. Also the games a pure shoot’em up experience. So this it is not a Bullet Hell. The games developed using Unity, but the graphics are looking impressive. Therefore, we did reach out to Manufacture 43 to make sure a Linux release is in the works. Since the debut is already set for Windows, but Linux is also confirmed.
Concerning the platforms, and specially Linux, we are planning to support it around November. To be honest it is working already but we need to test it more to be sure there is as few bugs as possible!”
The core gameplay is in development around a principle called the Trinity Mechanic. Also a clever new use of the good old Rock-Paper-Scissors. This mechanic allows the player to recharge its shield. So charge up a Super Attack or increase its damage at any given time. This mechanic gives a new lease of life to the genre!
PAWARUMI available on Steam October 23rd, 2017:
With a deep game system, that offers unlimited strategic opportunities. Also impressive and shiny graphics blending pre-columbian inspiration with 90’s 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.
So expect to see PAWARUMI via Early Access on October 23rd, 2017 for Windows. Yet there is a release confirmed for November for Linux.
The team will release regular updates with more content each time. Working closely with the community to improve the overall game feel. Creating 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.
