Shiness is a new action-RPG developed by indie development studio Enigami. Travel through an enchanting world where the lands of Mahera have become fragmented.
You play as Chado, a young and adventurous Waki able to communicate with a spirit from nature, the Shiness, and who masters the element of Earth. You will helped by Poky, an engineering genius able to repair anything mechanical, who is able to manipulate magnetic fields and electrical currents. Kayenne is a powerful Shelk warrior, who harnesses the psychic gift of Telekinesis; with this power, he may interact with the environment remotely, or paralyze enemies in battle. Askel is a fearsome mercenary, whose whip is destructive in combat, but is also useful during exploration to retrieve items normally out of reach. Finally, Rosalya uses the Fire element to disperse darkness, reveal hidden items or enemies, or inflict heavy damage during combat.
Some of the Key Features of Shiness are:
Travel through an enthralling and interactive world as Chado and his four companions, and develop your characters.
Hyper-dynamic combat, mixing magic with fighting game combat mechanics (hits, combos, parries, etc…)
Develop 2 types of skills (physical attacks and magic) and unlock new talents and spells.
Explore a vast world with multiple environments, that you will interact with thanks to you and your companions’ special powers and skills.
Numerous quests and side-quests will give you the opportunity to develop your characters and their reputation.
Teamwork between the members of your team will play an important role, as much during exploration as in the dynamic, 1-versus-1 combat of Shiness. Once in the arena, it’s up to you to adopt the best timing to chain punches, kicks, magic attacks and destructive combos. During these duels, your companions can intervene to replace the lead fighter, or help when required. Task your teammates with healing you when your health is low or to cast a spell to boost your strength at the start of every fight, and wisely use the Elemental affinities of each characters to weaken your enemies.
The game looks pretty interesting.
