NIXIE is a hybrid game, inspired by The World Ends With You, Sonic Riders & Ghost Trick. It follows the life of Fiona Soul, a soup kitchen worker, who encounters a spirit on her travels that transforms into a wedge-like hoverboard. Once she learns of the spiritual warfare and sees the impact it’s having on people, she begins to use it to attack spirits in people’s heads and battle for spiritual territory. This game is primarily about found family, communication, and the demonization of African spirituality.
