Game Profile

NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits tells the awesome story of Nyx, an enigmatic winged girl, who must descend from heaven in search of her missing friend Icarus. Fly over the ruins of ancient Greece and avoid falling into blazing sands or perishing in the claws of cruel harpies and hydras. You’ll need the help of Zeus and other benevolent gods from Olympus to summon their powers.

You control the action with Wii Remote, by using easy, intuitive movements that will enable you to cast rays, modify the scenery and control winds at your wish. Fly, aim and shoot using the new and fullest potential of your Wii Remote. You can also play with a friend and maximise your abilities - while one controls Nyx, the other will control the powers from the Gods.

Will you be a kindred spirit with NyxQuest or a mortal enemy?

WiiWare has introduced us to a lot of talented developers who seem to have sprung out of nowhere. Think of the likes of Gaijin Games with their Bit.Trip series, Ronimo Games with Swords & Soldiers, and of course 2D Boy with the sublime World of Goo...

If this is anything like Kid Icarus (and, of course, is a pretty good game), then this should be awesome.

Me excited! This definately looks to be a cross between kid icarus and lostwinds! It has potential.



Drizzt said:

Woah, what an incredible artstyle! I'm looking forward hearing more about this :).



CanisWolfred said:

Nope, it's just a Lost Winds clone, which is an improvement over Kid Icuras, but still, it's a clone, so I ain't buyin'.

This game is all over the news over here in Spain.
They say it comes out on May.



WindOnFire said:

This game looks pretty cool, never played Kid Icarus but LostWinds was awesome! If its like that im in




strong influences from Lost Winds and Kid Icarus eh. Hopefully, it'll turn out good. ONM did a mini play test of it and said it was "lovely" , whatever that means (LOL)

It's coming out this summer, eh? Looks like this'll be my 3rd WiiWare game (first was World of Goo, second was LIT).

Ionic columns are not supposed to have a frieze with (metope - triglyph). That is for the Doric order. Still fun to see all this Greek antique elements.

And by the way, this game has no relationship with Kid Icarus (only the ancient greek environment, which has been perfectly developed).
One of the best things of this game is the great and intelligent use that has been given to the wiimote, unlike many other wii games. A wise combination between nunchuck and wiimote is essential to advance through the game...




This game is great IMO. I was intrigued by the Ancient Greek Mythology theme, so I bought it, and I'm glad I did. I love everything about it. The flying, the gliding, the ability to move things with Zeus' power, and the fun use of the Wiimote (e.g. controlling fireballs). I highly recommend this game.
