St Petersbourgh, Russia – March 8th, 2017 – If you’re looking for a really innovative and fresh videogame, then Five Elements is the title you need to add to your Steam library. This year, on March 25th, New Star Games will release this incredible strategy game that revolves around the Taoist religion and its mystical energies. So, are you ready to defeat your own vices and reach enlightenment?
Five Elements is a real time hardcore strategy game that focuses on controlling the five forces of nature: fire, water, wood, earth and metal. You will play as a Taoist monk who’s on a journey to enlightenment. In this title, your battle is against the darkness inside your mind: your sins, vices and negative thoughts are your only real foes. To reach your ultimate goal, you’ll have to learn powerful spells and clear your soul until your body becomes a vessel of light.
“Gamers always want new titles to play with, but lately most companies launch clones, sequels and prequels. The videogame market needs to be reinvented and refreshed,” says Ivan Pestrikov, founder and creative director at New Star Games, “this is the reason why I developed Five Elements: a unique game based on Taoism and its lessons.”
Five Elements will offer the player the following features:
– A unique system: this title’s gameplay is a breath of fresh air; its concepts –borrowed from Chinese culture– are reflected through the energy streams and the structure of nodes that compose each stage.
– A non-violent quest: this time, you don’t need any weapons. Your main antagonist is the negativity in your mind and the darkness in your soul.
– Challenging gameplay: each stage relies on your ability to think strategically and logically.
– Aesthetically pleasing: every map is beautiful and refined, showing the designer’s artistic view.
About New Star Games
New Star Games is a project that was born from the idea of making totally innovative videogames. The studios’ founder has had a successful career at industrial companies but in his heart he’s always been a gamer—one with more than 25 years of experience behind him. He has played everything that beeps and flashes—even a scientific calculator. Now, destiny has called; the time has come for him to convert all his earned XP into beautiful and unique games. At New Star Games, we strongly believe in three things: 1) There is nothing more exciting in life than creating games. 2) Game play is everything. 3) The market is swamped with clones, sequels, and prequels. Making a clone may be a good business strategy, but we dare to create something really new.
