New game : Enter the beautiful hand-drawn world of Shu


North-East indie developers Coatsink are pleased to announce their hand-drawn and carefully crafted platformer is launching digitally today for PS4 and PC (via Steam) priced at £9.49 / $11.99 / €11.99.

The game will also be launched on PSVita in Q4 2016, and will support Playstation’s cross buy feature. Shu will challenge and delight players with an engrossing 2.5D world, filled with collectables, obstacles and threats.

Shu is a stylish 2.5D platformer set in a beautiful and engrossing world. Guide Shu and a cast of beautifully hand-drawn characters as they run, jump and glide their way across exotic lands, forever pursued by the monstrous and unrelenting Storm. 

Adventure across the land with the help of hand-drawn characters and their unique powers, forever pursued by a monstrous and unrelenting storm. Shu harkens back to old school platforming classics, but also adds its own unique flavour to the formula, boasting a large cast of characters and variety of fast-paced gameplay, optional time-trials and online leaderboards. Can you outrun the end of the world?
