Game publisher 1C announced earlier today that SHINY, an action platformer for everyone developed by independent developer Garage227 Studios, will be coming to Windows PC and Xbox One on 31st August 2016. It will also be presented at the forthcoming Gamescom in Cologne this August. Shiny is set on a planet heading for its doom, where fleeing humans left behind their robot workers. Controlling the steps of Kramer 227, players must make every effort to save all of his robot friends while exploring action-packed levels and testing their platformer skills and reflexes. A vital part of the gameplay is managing Kramer’s energy and making use of power-ups along the way. Only a properly charged robot can make it to the end and save the remaining mechanical inhabitants of Aurora!
About the game
Left to fend for himself after mankind abandoned the doomed planet Aurora, robot Kramer 227 must find a way to harvest energy and rescue his robotic friends before Aurora crashes into its sun. In his journey, Kramer will probe the planet itself and overcome challenging obstacles, all while trying to conserve his limited life energy to power himself and his friends on their way to safety.
Kramer will gather and share energy with his fellow robots, helping them escape dire situations and predicaments. He will have to jump and explore every platform in every corner of the 20 extensive levels to find all of his friends. Energy is running low on Aurora, so Kramer will have to collect batteries or use generators to recharge, as every action drains his power. Various power-ups collected along the way, such as jetpacks, energy spheres and temperature regulators, can help him on this crucial journey.
Shiny is about saving lives, so it contains no blood or violence.
- Enjoy non-violent, platforming action.
- Explore 20 extensive levels.
- Manage your energy levels – the robots’ source of life!
- Make use of cool power-ups found along the way.
Expect to see SHINY on Steam and the Xbox One Store on August 31st, 2016.
