Ashes of Oahu is the Redesigned Hawaiian Open-World Shooter RPG Nightmarchers

Ashes of Oahu

Following a year of silence, Wyrmbyte has provided a first look at the retooled version of its Hawaiian RPG Nightmarchers, which is now called Ashes of Oahu.

One of the key changes to the game is the shrinking of the playspace. Previously, Wyrmbyte had endeavoured to create a 1:1 representation of Oahu, though the new version reduces the island’s area to 25km2.

The move away from recreation extends to the gods in the game, which no longer take their names from those used by Hawaiian natives.

Another major change comes to the art style, which has been adapted from realism to one inspired by comic books. The developer claims that this alteration came from a desire to reflect the fictional nature of the story.

In other ways, Ashes of Oahu is an extension of the original vision. Over 75,000 lines of dialogue will be present, alongside four factions, and the player’s choices can lead to more than 100 ending combinations.

However, the key features of transformation into a bird and eagle, as well as the magical mod system for weapons, are still included.

Ashes of Oahu is now scheduled for release in the northern hemisphere’s spring. As Nightmarchers, the game was confirmed for release only on PC.

More information about that earlier incarnation is available in OnlySP’s interview with director Scott Brown.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
