Nayima is a third person puzzle game set in a poetic world deprived of sunlight after a sun shattering earthquake, in which you play as Tara. She must weave the last remaining ray of light available to bring back life in the never ending night that has set into the world. A dangerous and adventurous endeavour during which Tara must find ways to guide the light through the temple, while battling the hostile environment that tries to block her from reaching her goal.

The game is set in a poetic world that belongs to the Nayimas: a people devoted to and worshipping the sun, bringer of life. To show their devotion to the sun they have built huge and wonderful temples in its honor.

In the heart of every temple stands a huge statue welcoming the rays of light. Each temple spreads the light across the sacred edifice and neighbouring populations via glowing stones that are scattered across the temple.

However, after a sun shattering earthquake, the temples are deprived of sunlight. Darkness has taken over and the connection with the sun and the stones has been lost. A 12 years old Nayiman girl named Tara remains, holding the last spark of light and hope of the Nayiman people. She is now the only one who can link back the sun and her earth.


Nayima est un Puzzle Solver à la troisième personne qui se déroule dans un monde poétique dont le soleil s’est endormit après un énorme tremblement de terre. Dans ce jeu, vous incarnez Tara qui est la seule à pouvoir tisser le dernier rayon de soleil restant afin de ramener à la vie le monde endormit ( dans l’obscurité ). Tara doit réussir à guider le fil de lumière au travers du temple, tout en évitant l’environnement nocturne néfaste qui l’empêche de passer.

Le monde poétique du jeu appartient aux Nayimas : Un peuple qui vénère le soleil, source de vie.
Pour exprimer leur dévotion à l’astre solaire, ils ont construit d’incroyables temples qui lui sont dévoués dans lesquels réside une immense statue acceuillant les rayons du soleil.

Chaque temple permet de diriger la lumière solaire, tel un fleuve, aux habitations voisines grâce à l’aide de pierres de lumières.
Mais après le tremblement de Terre briseur de soleil, les temples sont privés de lumière. Une nuit s’abbât sur le monde et le soleil et la terre ne sont plus reliés. Tara, une Nayima de 12 ans est la seule à pouvoir relier le soleil et son monde.

Hey Marianne! Sorry for the late reply, I've added your question to the FAQ in the discussions. Although we are not dead, I'm afraid we are very dorment, so I really can't give you any estimation. It will not come out any time soon :(
