Nardio Game News
This indie game popped up on my radar this morning and I’m really loving what I’m seeing. Effie is a hack n slash action platformer that looks really good.
Effie is now wishlistable (fake words for the win!) on Steam.
I love these types of games so I am excited. I love bright and colorful art design as well as the character design so far. The only downside I am seeing is the jerky camera movement when attacking. Not my cup of tea as someone who gets headaches from too much screenshake. That said, hopefully, it gets updated and fixed.
Thanks a lot! There isn’t that option for now, sorry. But if there’s something many people ask for, we will think about adding it!😊
