“It is very satisfying to see NeverAwake’s positive reception and that it continues to receive awards,” said Azusa Kawamura, Producer at Phoenixx. “Our dream of launching on all consoles is almost a reality, and we can’t wait for Xbox users to try out NeverAwake in a few short weeks!”
Here’s an overview of NeverAwake, via Phoenixx:
Guide Rem on a quest to wake up from a neverending nightmare. Wade through the subconscious thoughts of a young schoolgirl as everyday experiences turn into frightening face-offs against her fears. Fight against Rem’s biggest phobias including evil dentists, vicious vegetables, dangerous dogs and other adolescent annoyances.
Bob and weave through bad dreams and mow down Rem’s inner demons with fast-paced twin-stick SHMUP combat. Stick and move with multiple attack patterns that lend to different movement styles, and clear waves of enemies with surreal specials like 360-degree explosions and shotgun-esque directional blasts. Purchase and upgrade items to improve passives and armor, and create the ultimate build to topple dozens of terrifying bosses.
Unravel a touching narrative across more than 80 levels in a hand-drawn bizarre bullet hell. How fast can Rem awaken? Demonstrate dreamlike mastery in the all-new speedrun mode, and manifest five new weapons from fellow shoot-em-up favorites including “Emerald Vajra” from fantasy shooter VRITRA HEXA. Enjoy the latest that NeverAwake has to offer with the latest 1.1 content update featuring new battle accessories and the secret HIMITSU CHALLENGE after clearing world 8.
