Nkidu Games have revealed that Welkin Road, a super stylish free running parkour title, will be hitting Steam Early Access on April 13th. You can check out the game’s teaser trailer below:
Soaring amid the clouds, Welkin Road blends free running with grappling-hook-powered aerobatics, challenging you to reach the end of each level using only your wits and the abilities available to you. The road ahead will test your resolve, your concentration and your reflexes, forcing you to master your swings and movement as you learn new techniques to overcome the obstacles in the world… or plummet to your doom.
The gameplay is driven by two core components: grappling and parkour. Make use of the two grappling hooks to swing from point to point, creating momentum while using parkour-inspired movement to explore the world. Sprint, leap, balance, run on walls and hold on for dear life as you perform incredible, high-altitude, acrobatic stunts.
You have full control over the grappling hooks, as well as the direction, speed and timing of your swings. Master and blend all of these elements into fast, fluid and elegant runs. Challenge yourself further by competing against the clock and the time of other runners around the world.
