NENA is a brand new journey following Botley, a robotic that desires greater than a life disposing of self-aware robotic containers.
In some unspecified time in the future within the far future, robotics and AI are so superior that we needed to move legal guidelines to present them full consciousness of life and all of it appears as horrible as you’ll be able to think about. NENA may not appear like a lot but it surely’s fairly a shocking little journey with some amusing interactions.
On this quick, top-down action-puzzler you begin while you’re first turned on, solely to be informed instantly that your solely motive for “residing” is to place little containers right into a furnace to eliminate them — eternally. The issue is, you are self-aware, you understand in regards to the world and the containers you are alleged to burn to ashes are additionally conscious. Fortunately, the containers have been programmed to love every thing, even ache…
Not precisely probably the most thrilling life.
Nevertheless, you may have a particular capability. You are no peculiar little bot. You are ready assume management of others via some type of telepathic-wireless connection, which rapidly permits you to escape and go on an journey as a result of clearly your designers did not do an excellent job at securing your workspace.
In your travels, you meet some fairly horrible selections made by humanity, like a robotic display screen that is simply as self-aware as all different robots but it surely solely has a mouth. So it may possibly’t truly see, really feel or hear. I really feel a bit unhealthy for laughing on the dialogue because it’s amusingly harsh. And from there you proceed via totally different puzzle-challenges, which might grow to be considerably difficult as you assume management of various robots, turrets and even bullets.
Take management of a bullet mid-flight, then redirect it to bounce round and hit targets. You not solely want good intention and reflexes however a little bit of quick-thinking too.
It isn’t simply puzzles and avoiding just a few turrets although, it throws in boss fights at you and turns into virtually like a bullet-hell in some sections. You may’t take management of all bullets, solely sure varieties and enemies have a number of totally different assaults so it is about avoiding (want your Sprint capability) and taking management when you’ll be able to. That, together with the entire whimsical dialogue as properly in fact.
The preliminary struggle together with your Boss is every kind of ridiculous too, took me a superb 5 or 6 makes an attempt to really beat them and it will get actually fairly intense while you’ve managed to get their well being bar proper down as issues pace up.
NENA ended up being fairly an enormous shock. The developer despatched alongside a key through our Steam Curator (go observe us!), and it truly is a splendidly designed recreation and tremendous charming.
One other instance of an indie developer having the ability to provide a extremely nice expertise with so little. It is fairly quick, general you are round 2-Three hours relying on how difficult you discover the motion and the puzzles. Completely price it although. That ending — gosh.
