Fishing, Friendship and Adventure Come Together in Nusakana

Nusakana is the name of Studio Namaapa’s upcoming RPG that revolves around fishing, friendship, adventure, and a very dark secret. The game takes place on a tropical island which is not only a hotspot for tourists, researchers, and suspicious characters, but a rich source of mana, a natural substance with special magical properties. Players assume the role of a fisherman who has three years to figure out the island’s secret, but with so much free time on hand, players can choose from a range of activities including selling and trading items with merchants, crafting equipment, or forming relationships with other islanders.


Nusakana’s simple yet deep turn based battle system will allow players to prepare their strategy well in advance, which will come in handy for those who choose to trek across the island to defy the dangerous local wildlife. The main inspiration behind the game comes from the Atelier series by Japanese developers Gust Co.Ltd, and gameplay will also draw more extensively on the JRPG style of open-world play, something that Namaapa believes emphasizes player freedom.


Nusakana is currently in development and needs your vote to get the green light on Steam. For those who are interested, there is a demo version available from the game’s development blog here, but it will require you to download RPG Maker VX Ace RT in order for the game to run. The expected release date for Nusakana is during the second quarter of 2015 on PC. In the meantime, you can follow the game on Twitter for the latest updates, and make sure to also check out Nusakana’s official Facebook page.
