Ashwalkers is a melancholy narrative game offering an unprecedented amount of choice as players guide their party through its greyscale wasteland,” said Hervé Bonin, founder of Nameless XIII. “Its small, intimate scale makes it perfect for Switch, where you can hold it close to your face and easily put it in sleep mode for convenience.

RPG elements are central to the genre mix, as are developing individual skills that can help you in your quest, and in some cases, using your skills changes the outcome of certain incidents will be one of the many factors that contributes to and shapes your gaming experience.

And so the story begins……….

Quest For Infamy starts with Mr. Roehm, a roguish fellow, escaping the clutches of Baron Brandlevrot, who believes he’s done him wrong – and he escapes in a straw-filled cart to the town of Volksville, in the picturesque Valley of Krasna. Stuck in town, due to a bridge being out, Mr. Roehm finds himself unintentionally drawn into the secretly nefarious goings on in the valley. As he explores the town and valley, he faces a strange cult that has plans for the peaceful valley, and unravels the connection to a mystery that has long plagued the people of Krasna.

He can use his cunning, brains or brawn to craft his own adventure! Learn the secrets of thievery and practice your sneakiness on the path of the rogue. Train your muscles and forge friendships with a brutish band of toughs on the path of the Brigand.

Atmospheric Puzzle Adventure The Last Cube Launches March 10th on Nintendo Switch!

Espoo, Finland – February 17th, 2022 – Improx Games’ brain-teasing puzzle adventure game The Last Cube is now slated for a March 10th release on PC, Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Set in a series of surreal otherworldly landscapes, it’s up to you to discover the history of this uncanny alien civilization.

The Last Cube is a richly atmospheric puzzle game about guiding a cube through a plethora of mystifying, monolithic chambers as you uncover the story behind this peculiar world. Explore a wide array of brutalist architecture ranging from foggy nightmarish abysses, to oppressive lava lit factories, to uplifting natural landscapes full of golden rays of sunshine glistening against mountains. Coupled with an epic soundtrack that thoroughly enriches the ominous vibe, and an abstract story of a dying world on the cusp of ruin, The Last Cube is a moody, mysterious puzzler that fully immerses you in its derelict world.

The Last Cube features a unique sticker system, allowing you to stamp certain abilities onto your cube’s sides, granting all new abilities for that surface. Some will allow you to dash through barriers, others will create makeshift stairs, and some grant the ability to spin in place for easy maneuvering in tight places. Positioning your cube to acquire the desired stickers on the correct surface can range from pleasingly simplistic, to masochistic head scratchers as you scramble through The Last Cube’s 100+ puzzles. New mechanics are introduced at a breezy clip, rapidly expanding one’s perception of what your cube is capable of.

Clamouring through each chamber offers a sturdy challenge, though only the most dedicated players will uncover all of The Last Cube’s bevy of collectibles and bonus stages littered throughout the adventure. Do you have what it takes to solve the puzzle tracks left by your ancestors and save this peculiar world from collapsing?

The Last Cube has come a long way since its inception in 2017 and has grown into a far more ambitious project than we ever could have imagined,” said Max Samarin, creative director at Improx Games. “The final result is a rich puzzle experience whose gameplay is full of joyful aha-moments and surprises, set in very diverse, colorful, eerie and mysterious environments of the Cube Planet. We think casual and hardcore puzzle fans alike will be enamoured by its gradually evolving mechanics and wealth of secrets when The Last Cube launches on March 10th.”
