oprainfall | Nira


Nira is a procedurally generated, pixel art sandbox adventure developed by Baseline Games. The adventure begins October 14th, when the game lands on PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch. Nira will be priced at $9.99 and has an ESRB rating of Everyone 10+.

Players will try to survive on procedurally generated islands, and make friends with a mysterious totem that gives you quests. You’ll also delve into dungeons in another realm where you must fight off waves of enemies. Nira is loaded with things to do, from building and crafting, to farming, fighting, riding, flying, and questing. Build a base to protect yourself, ride alpacas, fly planes, and more.


Barry, the founder of and developer at Baseline Games, commented about the upcoming launch and development:

“I’ve been listening to feedback from the community and working hard on improving the game since Nira first hit Early Access last year. I’m happy to see all the efforts come together and finally launch the full version of Nira, especially on the Nintendo Switch. The minimalistic pixel-art and fast-paced gameplay works great with the portability of the Switch, which allows players to easily hop in and out of play sessions.”

Finally, straight from the press release, here are a number of key features you’ll find in the endless adventure of Nira:

  • Gather resources to craft tools, deadly weapons and armor sets
  • Level up your skills to unlock new weapons and recipes
  • Build a fortress to defend yourself from enemies
  • Fight hordes of goblins and ogres
  • Plant and grow crops

  • Complete quests given by a mysterious Totem to level up your character
  • Discover dungeons throughout the game that teleport you to another world where you have to fight waves of enemies
  • Build vehicles
  • Tame and ride animals
  • Play solo or with one friend in local co-op
  • Explore an array of beautifully rendered pixel-art worlds
  • Endless procedurally generated gameplay
