Yesterday, Coconut Games announced the release of Shio on PlayStation 4. The fast-paced platformer will also have a 20 percent launch discount for those that purchase the game within the first two weeks of release.
Shio’s challenging twist on classic side-scrolling platformer design revolves around its lanterns. More than just decoration, these floating lights let you chain jumps in dizzying combinations in mid-air, making it possible to explore the farthest reaches of the world while putting your wits and dexterity to the test.
The only enemy in Shio is the environment, and it’s out to stop you at all costs with new traps and obstacles introduced to players throughout the journey in unique and interesting ways. The game is divided into four chapters, each with its own theme and corresponding weather patterns, such as fierce winds, raging fire and heavy fog, which greatly impact the trials you’ll face. There are also hidden rooms to discover across the world that shed light on the sad tale of the game’s mysterious masked man.
