Corecell brings one-man indie clicker RPG Wanderjahr to PSN later this month
Corecell, the makers of games like Crazy Strike Bowling and Aeternoblade, has partnered up with Thai indie developer Workyrie Company to bring their point-and-click RPG Wanderjahr to the North American PlayStation Store for PS Vita on August 31st.
Wanderjahr tells the story of UN Jariya, a global organization charged with maintaining world order and peace. You see, a hundred years ago, the Universal Source Code was discovered – and its secrets and structure was the key to create a better universe in harmony and peace. With changes, updates and tweaking, the code could be improved to create a better existence to all, but alas, when you least expect it, two weeks before you are done, evil shows its ugly face, and monsters appear in droves with the intent to destroy everything you have worked for. Is this a coincidence?
The game, developed by one person over a period of four and a half years, has players bounce through 18 different characters to fight monsters, solve quests and unravel the story’s mystery. Workyrie developed the game in part to promote a better understanding of programming, so a portion of the game’s source code is actually viewable as a narrative hook.
Wanderjahr originally launched on PC via Steam earlier this year, but has struggled to find an audience. Corecell believes the PlayStation fanbase is different, though. The PS Vita version has seen rebalanced gameplay, an overhauled widescreen UI and high definition visuals. You can view the trophies for the game here.
