Doujin Platformer, Eryi’s Action, Hops Onto PCs This Week

By Ishaan . September 11, 2012 . 12:20pm

 

Doujin game publisher, Nyu Media, recently announced the second slate of doujin titles that they’ll be publishing in English, and one of them is being released this week—Eryi’s Action, a 2D platformer developed by Xtal Sword.

 

Eryi’s Action puts you in the shoes of Eryi, who sets out for revenge after someone eats this melon she’d been looking forward to eating, and leaves a note letting her know, in its place. The game has 12 stages, and Nyu Media also say that, while Eryi’s Action is meant to be tough, it has an autosave function that will make repeated failures more tolerable.

 

Eryi’s Action will be released for PC via GamersGate, Desura.com, and EryisAction.com, and will cost $4.99. You can watch a trailer for it above and try a demo out here.

 

Nyu Media also mention that this is the “first game” they are publishing without the aid of Capcom, who they partnered with to publish their previous titles. Eryi’s Action is also not guaranteed to be a Steam release, but is up on Steam Greenlight for up-voting. Should the game be released on Steam, that version will have 32 achievements.

    So many hidden traps. This looks more frustating than entertaining.

       It is frustrating and at the same time very humerous. I´ve burst out laughing loud many times when a semingless free jump turns into a deathtrap.

      I´m eagerly awaiting the full title as so far it has been so much fun.

    “Xtal Sword and Nyu media Ltd. assume no responsibility for damage, injury, rage, addiction or mental trauma caused by playing this game.”

    I burst out laughing a minute and twenty six seconds into it! Definitely looking forward to getting this puppy.

    And good lord, are they creative! It’s like they took the expansive creativity of Prinny and jammed it into Mario!

    So it’s basically IWBTG taken to the cute, less frustrating extreme?

    That’s so Kaizo.

    Does anyone have an idea on how many votes a game actually needs before it gets approved for Steam?

    • Jonathan Keycross

      “How many votes does a game need to get selected?

      It’s going to change during the first few days/weeks since we
      don’t know what kind of traffic to expect. Part of the drive for this
      system is the need for customers to help us prioritize which games they
      want to see made available on Steam. So the specific number of votes
      doesn’t matter as much as relative interest in a game compared with
      other games in Steam Greenlight.

      We’re going to be reaching out to developers as we see their
      games getting traction regardless of whether they have achieved a
      specific number of votes or are sitting 1st or 2nd place at any given
      time. We are most interested in finding the games that people want, not
      requiring them to always hit a specific number of votes.”

        Thanks!

  • Eriol

    Looks like someone took classic Syobon Action and made it cuter. I’m sure the title is a reference to that too.

    • Draparde

      according to Nyu media on steam greenlight, the creator of Syobon action also made this one. (at least i think i remember reading that…im pretty sure i did though)

  • Jonathan Keycross

    I just played the demo…

    Movement is with directional buttons and you can only jump and pick up stuff.
    This demo just taught me that tips coming from boxes aren´t 100% reliable…and your first trial in an adventure starts from leaving home.

    While the game does uses lives, it mimics other mario clones with negative number of lives left (after having 0 lives left, you still play but with -1…) I was -35 lives by the second level on my first try. So yeah, I´m not that familiar with these games it seems.

    I would recommend this game to anyone who likes Trap-Hell-Platform games like I wanna Be the Guy, but would like to live the experience with original visuals and music rather than from other games.

    For the price I think it´s good and delivers what it offers.

    Of course this is just my opinion. Time to finish stage 2.

  • CirnoLakes

    I don’t understand why they, and many others, had to go through Greenlight to begin with and weren’t approved immediately.

    Maybe it’s not as good as Bunny Girl Must Die, or La-Mulana, but still. And for these games it’s even more criminal that they weren’t accepted. Steam/Valve really dropped the ball with some of these games.

  • Göran Isacson

    … WELP at least it is honest. I don’t think I’d have time for these kinda trial and error games myself, but it’s nice to know it’s available for the fans. And really, after watching that trailer you really know all you need to know about what kind of game it is, so you already know if you’ll love it or hate it.

  • Prungy

    I love that you can pick up enemies and toss them ahead of you to find traps.

  • Draparde

    This game was pretty fun when i played the demo, and i tottaly upvoted it on steam

    I, too, Wanna Be the Guy who beats this game…

  • Mazdian

    I don’t know… I don’t exactly think I’ll appreciate the trial and error gameplay they showed in the trailer, but the design of the game definitely appeals to me. Eryi and the enemies are so cute…
