NAIRI is a cute point-and-click adventure that draws inspiration from such titles as The Last Airbender, Toy Story and Spirited Away. It’s family-friendly while presenting a subtly compelling narrative and engaging puzzles. The light tone of the story is juxtaposed with a strong focus on character development and a darker overarching theme.

Nairi is also the name of the player-character. She’s an abandoned upper-class girl who joins forces with Rex, a criminal turned scholar, to uncover a dark mystery in the exotic oasis city of Shirin.

NAIRI is appropriate for any age, sex and skill level. It features charming characters, unique visuals and a catchy soundtrack. It’s sure to please anyone seeking a strong narrative and puzzle experience presented in a classic point-and-click format.

Joshua van Kuilenburg, project lead, HomeBearStudio: With NAIRI now funded and Greenlit on Steam, we’d like to start sharing what we have planned for stretch goals. By reaching these, it would allow us to further immerse players into a living and breathing world and really enrichen the exotic city of Shirin.

It’s estimated that the game will be released in March 2017 for Windows. If you’d like to support NAIRI‘s stretch goals, please visit the Kickstarter page.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
