We’ve been keeping track of Navegante’s Greak: Memories of Azur for quite some time now and Team17 have just announced that they will be helping to bring it to Nintendo Switch.
Here’s the full press release:
Team17 and Navegante, with collaboration from Bromio, have today revealed a brand new partnership, which will see the award-winning games label (Overcooked! 2, Yoku’s Island Express) publish the Latin American studio’s debut title, Greak: Memories of Azur, for PC and console. Featuring stunning hand-drawn, 2D visuals, Greak: Memories of Azur is a single-player, fantasy Metroidvania that sees players alternate control of three siblings – Greak, Adara, and Raydel – as they attempt to defeat deadly enemies, solve puzzles, and overcome a deadly invasion on their homeland.
Set across the land of Azur, players will have to harness the individual abilities and powers of the trio to progress through the many environments they uncover. These include Greak’s natural agility and ability to fit through small and narrow spaces, Adara’s arcane magic attacks and power of levitation, and Raydel’s fighting skills and specialised gear to traverse difficult terrain.
Rodrigo Fernandez & Gustavo Alcala, Co-Founders, Navegante Entertainment, said:
“Greak: Memories of Azur is a real labour of love for everybody involved with Navegante and our friends from Bromio; we want to create a game that excels artistically and exceeds the players’ expectations. Partnering with Team17 is a dream come true for us, since their track record in nurturing and launching indie titles is incredible, so we’re extremely excited to fulfil our vision for Greak: Memories of Azur with them.”
Max Everingham, Head of Publishing, Team17, said:
“We’re very pleased to add Greak: Memories of Azur to our rapidly growing and compelling games portfolio. As soon as we saw the visual style and entered the world of Azur, we were instantly absorbed into the universe that Navegante is creating, and we’re sure that our audiences will enjoy the Metroidvania journey just as much as we are.”
