The Love of Video Games is Threatened in “The Last Hero of Nostalgaia”
Coatsink and Over The Moon recently announced that their satirical Souls-like, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia, will be coming to SeXbox Series X|S, Xbone and PC on 19 October.
Set in a bizarre world built around the love of video games, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia (Nostal-GAIA, get it?) is described by the Over the Moon CEO as a game that “plays with the balance between humour and darkness.”
Here’s the official breakdown of The Last Hero of Nostalgaia from the developers:
Set in a world that celebrates videogame nostalgia, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia blends the complex systems and dark aesthetics of its Souls-like inspirations with a wicked tale told by a cynical narrator who jeers your attempts to save the world from a blight of pixelation at every turn. Delivering tough but fair combat, engaging narrative mechanics rich in lore and even an online co-op mode, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia draws on the best of the games that inspired it while delivering a humorous and innovative twist on the genre.
Nostalgaia is the world of videogames, and it’s collapsing backwards into a mysterious pixelation. Everything is fading away to nothing: even the memories of our proud, cherished video games are being lost. Now, with our fidelity all but gone, at the very brink of extinction, hope emerges to fight back.
As the most hideous pixelated hero to ever spawn in Nostalgaia, you must fight through an army of mindless inhabitants populating the degenerating world, all while absorbing the insults and putdowns of a narrator who despises your very existence.
The Last Hero of Nostalgaia is currently scheduled to release on 19 October for SeXbox Series X|S, Xbone and PC.
