High definition, high tech computer generated graphics are great and all, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to the basics; games with hand-drawn and painted graphics can look just as nice. Case in point? Amazu Media’s upcoming environmental adventure title Shrug Island. Described as “a game of nature puzzles and musical adventure”, Shrug Island is currently seeking $25,000 in Kickstarter funding to continue development. From the Kickstarter page:
In [Shrug Island], you play as 2 separated friends reconnecting with a living home they’ve been away from for a season, and trying to meet.You switch between the two, use their different abilities to solve puzzles, sing to their surroundings, dialogue and collect parts of the world, as you explore and bring together animated pieces of an unusual story.
