Anuchard, the civilization restoration action RPG from developer stellarNull and publisher Freedom Games, rescues the spirits of Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, as well as Windows PC via Steam and Epic Game Store on Thursday, April 21, 2022.
Orchard, known for its close-knit community in a quaint farming village, slowly crumbles. Many integral citizens have been lost to the mysterious underground dungeons underneath the peaceful town. As the population dwindles, the remaining inhabitants hold out hope for legends prophesying a dauntless hero destined to wield the powerful Audros Bell.
Emerge as one of the great Bellwielders and take on the noble duty of restoring Orchard’s lost souls trapped underground. Follow the guidance of fallen Bell Spirits to journey deep into derelict caves and conduits full of brain-testing puzzles. Swing the Audros Bell in fast-paced, classic action RPG combat to knockback monsters and release the souls they’ve claimed.
Hurl environmental elements at fiendish foes taking advantage of their weaknesses and brutalizing bosses to release crystallized spirits of ruined adventurers. Return to town after each conquest to return key members back to the community like chefs, farmers, herbalists, and more specialists who can help rebuild the village.
Collect pieces of ancient technology, called Spires, to assist in combat and create life-replenishing recipes to upgrade the hero’s stats. Build relationships around town throughout the main storyline to learn of the fabled guardians of old. Uncover the revelations of what truly befell Orchard and the world at large.
“Anuchard is a clear nod to old-school PS1 RPGs, authentically showcased in nostalgic favorites of the 90s titles like Legend of Mana and Soul Blazer,” said Rico Lemba, Designer, stellarNull. “I’ve wanted to create this dynamic top-down dungeon crawling experience packed with action for some time. The depths of Orchard’s secrets will finally be revealed next month!”
Anuchard comes to Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, as well as Windows PC via Steam and Epic Game Store for $19.99 with English, French Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified) language support.
StellarNull is a small development team of passionate industry professionals who strive to turn fresh ideas into enjoyable creations, taking inspiration from the NES, SEGA Genesis, SNES, and PSX era.
