Cloudpunk developer ION Lands has announced a new game, a cyberpunk life sim called Nivalis.
Nivalis already has a Steam page, which contains several screenshots of the game, showing off a similar aesthetic to Cloudpunk. The game is described as a “unique slice-of-life sim with realistic weather simulation and night and day cycles”
As well as being the name of the game, Nivalis is also the name of the cyberpunk city you’ll live and build up a career in. This is, as fans will know, the same city in which Cloudpunk takes place.
“You’ve got to start small: a food stall, a noodle stand, a stim store. Build your way up to a bar, a restaurant, or even a nightclub,” the game’s description reads. “Eventually, you’ll own all the nightlife in Nivalis. You’ll own the night!
As well as managing businesses, Nivalis players will meet “strange and diverse characters” and “experience the danger and wonder of this cyberpunk voxel city”. Buying and growing ingredients, cooking and making cocktails, home decoration and fishing are all mentioned on the Steam page. As for how you’ll get around Nivalis, the Steam page mentions travelling on foot as well as driving a “flying HOVA through realistically simulated traffic”.
There is no planned release date for Nivalis right now, but you can wishlist it on Steam to keep an eye on future updates.
