We first laid our hands on Shu last year at EGX. It was love at first sight. In fact, we were so enamoured with the gorgeous looking platformer that it stole our number one spot in our “Top 10 Indie Games of EGX 2015” list. Finally, after a year of waiting impatiently, Shu finally has a release date.
Shu will be available on PC and PS4 on 4 October 2016. A PS Vita version is also in the works, which is set to be released by the end of 2016.
Here’s what we had to say about it after demoing Shu last year:
“Heavily influenced by Ori & The Blind Forest and Rayman, Shu is a colourful platformer that really stole our hearts at EGX.
With its effortlessly responsive controls and beautiful 2D graphics we were instantly enamoured with its familiar yet tireless gameplay, which had us running, jumping and gliding our way through a wonderfully lush level. Along the way we found numerous stranded villagers and by taking them along with us the lovable Shu gained new abilities such as being able to run along water. The excellent demo then proceeded to finish with a tense chase scene that truly tested our platforming abilities.”
If you’re a fan of platforming, then Shu definitely deserves to be on your radar. Feast your eyes on on the launch trailer below:
