One of the biggest cult hits amongst our community over the years has been Nimian Legends: BrightRidge. It’s an open-world 3rd-person adventure game that originally launched back in July of 2014 as a years long passion project of solo developer Robert Kabwe aka Protopop Games. It lacked most of the structure and storyline you’d expect from a typical open-world action RPG and instead focused on the joy of exploration, and featured a huge and interesting world where you could do just that. In 2016 a fully revamped HD version of Nimian Legends was released and over the years the developer has added to the game tremendously, including many of those previously missing things like a story campaign and a more traditional action RPG structure. At its heart though, Nimian Legends: BrightRidge is all about getting lost in an awesome fantasy world, and now its sequel wants to offer another huge world to explore. Here’s a trailer from that upcoming sequel, Nimian Legends: Vandgels.
That video is from last summer, but if you wanted to see some shorter but more recent looks at Nimian Legends: Vandgels then there are A LOT more videos to see over on the Protopop YouTube channel. Now if you want to go a step further and actually PLAY this upcoming release, it’s currently in open beta and if you head over to the game’s thread in our forums you’ll find a public Testflight link that will give you access to the beta build. This version only includes an Exploration mode while Protopop continues to work on the story, but if you just want to run around in a new world then this should fit the bill. You can provide feedback in that same forum thread our directly through the Testflight app. As an additional bonus to all this beta testing excitement, the original Nimian Legends: BrightRidge HD is currently free for I believe just the third time ever. If you haven’t jumped on the Nimian Legends wagon yet then now is the time to do it for both BrightRidge and Vandgels, and we’ll be sure to keep an eye on this sequel as it continues to shape up.
