Bidogames have just announced their 2D co-operative sandbox game, Nioki Adventure, which they hope will continue on the soul of games of its ilk.
Let me just grab the bullet shield before I advance. Right, so two-man development team, Bidogames, have just announced their slick looking debut title for PC and Xbox 360. It’s called Nioki Adventure and they have said that they hope to maintain the kind of gameplay that Terraria was popularised with (multiplayer, exploration, construction, bosses, etc.), while at the same time advancing it further and shaping it to be something unique, per the community’s suggestion.
“It is important for us to have a community by our side to provide more contents to the game, both during the development and after the initial release,” Marc Lejeune, lead designer at Bidogames told us. “Players will be able to submit ideas for quests, items, crafting…any idea is appreciated!”
The developers say that one thing they will concentrating on in particular with Nioki Adventure is the quests; having a main quest to complete as well as other smaller ones. In fact, they seem to be concentrating on the RPG side of it quite a lot, making sure the game is challenging and will require players to work together and level up. Of course, in the traditions of the sandbox game (nowadays) is personalization, which will of course come by the bucketload.
At the moment, Nioki Adventure is still in development and of course the fans, as said, can help out with this process with their suggestions. For updates on the game’s progress you can check the official website, the development blog and the official Twitter feed.
