British game development studio Coatsink, probably most well-known for its VR game Esper and Esper 2, have announced the release date of its next game – and it has nothing to do with Virtual Reality or mind-control.
Shu, described by the team at Coatsink as a “hand-drawn and carefully crafted platformer”, will release on the PlayStation 4 and on Steam on October 4. It will also be available on Sony’s PS Vita later this year.
Here’s what the developer says about the 2.5D side scrolling adventure game: “Control Shu and a colourful trail of hand-drawn characters as they run, jump and glide their way up an ancient mountain, forever pursued by a monstrous and unrelenting storm. Can you outrun the end of the world?”
I’m guessing that monstrous, evil-looking purple thing chasing Shu and friends is the unrelenting storm. It doesn’t look very happy, does it?
Here are some screen shots to give you an idea on what it looks like. No word on regional pricing yet from Coatsink.
