Montreal-based Mighty Cast Inc, makers of the popular customizable smartband, Nex, has announced the introduction of its first "choose your own adventure" visual novel, The Mighty Maru. This is the first independent game released by the company for the Nex Band where users can cast spells and craft magical elements from their wrist.
The Nex Band is a wearable that acts as a personalized remote. It is a Bluetooth-connected wristband that features five LED-illuminated buttons (called "mods") that can be programmed using a mobile app to execute any number of actions including opening the garage door, playing music or lighting up and vibrating in reaction to phone calls or notifications. It can also double as a fitness tracker.
The Mighty Maru is a visual novel specifically designed for The Nex Band. The band started as a prop in this magical adventure created by the multiple Emmy-Award winning co-founders. "Nex was born out of a creative story world which is what makes it unique in wearables" explains Mighty Cast CEO, Adam Adelman. "We wanted to share this experience with our community and allow it to be played for free whether you have a Nex Band or not". The Mighty Maru is a free to play visual novel available at the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
