Explore a Fantastical World in TASOMACHI
Do you like exploring vast worlds full of wonder? Then Playism and renowned developer nocras have you covered with TASOMACHI: Behind the Twilight. It’s a 3D platformer set in a Far-Eastern fantasy world. And best of all, it’s slated to come to Steam later this month. Specifically, TASOMACHI is coming to Steam on April 14th.
Still not sure if the game is for you? Check out this info from the PR:
Explore the beautiful landscape and undertake the various trials of an imagined world inspired by the art, culture, and geography of East Asia and late-90’s collect-a-thon platformers. Artist-turned-game developer nocras’s impressive resume includes credits on multiple AAA titles, including 3D design on Final Fantasy XIII-2 in addition to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and 2D art for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
As crash-landed explorer Yukumo, double jump, dash, and airdrop through dungeons, temples, and various scenic locations, complete with a “Photo Mode” to commemorate the many beautiful sights. Take on these challenges at a relaxed pace with no life gauges or hit counters to worry about while jamming out to a soundtrack by Ujico*, a Japanese musician with more than 1 million YouTube subscribers and 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners.
Between levels, visit the city that serves as home to the Nezu Tribe, a cat-like species providing Yukumo with requests to complete various tasks in exchange for valuable collectibles and resources. Find new areas by repairing Yukumo’s airship, discover ancient temples, and traverse cherry blossom-covered gardens and snow-covered mountain ranges. Earn new outfits and items to decorate Yukumo’s house among the Nezu Tribe.
I think TASOMACHI has a great aesthetic charm, and looks promising. If you’re interested, please note that besides Steam, the game is also coming via GOG, and will feature language options for English, Japanese and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). And if you’re still uncertain, please check out the trailer below!
