Ashes of Oahu is inspired by the unique stories, traditions, and beliefs of the Hawaiian Islands and is primed to provide players with an experience unlike any other they’ve seen before. Ashes of Oahu is an open world, story driven shooter where you work with or against the surviving factions of a post apocalyptic Hawaii.
“Ashes of Oahu tells the fictitious story of a Native Hawaiian Kai, as he fights to regain control of Oahu working with or against the different factions on the island.”, said Scott Brown, CEO of Wyrmbyte and Producer on Ashes of Oahu. “Our team of less than ten put together this epic Hawaiian adventure, and we’re ecstatic to finally be this close to letting you all experience the tale.”
In the months since Wyrmbyte’s open world, post-apocalyptic RPG shooter hybrid was originally announced, the developers have been hard at work revamping the game to provide the best possible open world adventure for players. Wyrmbyte has taken feedback from native Hawaiians to heart, and the name change to Ashes of Oahu and the removal of any real gods names from the game ensures that the developer offers a faithful but respectful Hawaiian experience.
When the game launches in the Spring of 2019, players will find a completely retooled art style that is more akin to a 3D comic book that better represents the fictional nature of the story. Additionally, the world has become more dense and compact, while still remaining massive at roughly 25 square kilometers in size. More content, more weapons, more stories to experience. Plus, the team has been hard at work on all-new character models and many other graphical improvements.
With over 75,000 lines of dialog leading to over 100 possible ending combinations, player choice makes each story unique. Along the way, players will unlock over 50 different skills and weapon enhancements based on these decisions helping to shape their gameplay experience.
Ashes of Oahu is currently set to release Spring 2019.
