The debut action RPG Shiness from studio #Enigami #reveals its gameplay today in a video dedicated to the #combat, environments, and exploration in Mahera, the game’s world.
While exploring the world, take on battles seamlessly, earning experience points and learning new powers as players progress. Overcome dangers and dastardly bosses throughout the land, combat in Shiness utilizes traditional fighting game mechanics with an RPG flair. Fights in Shiness combine attacking, parrying, dodging and combos like in traditional fighter games with a clever use of elemental magic.
Play as Chado and his companions, travelling through the celestial islands on their flying ship. After a crash-landing on one of the most hostile of the celestial islands, in the middle of a conflict involving multiple kingdoms. However, this explosive situation might find a peaceful outcome, with Chado’s new found unique ability to perceive and communicate with the Shiness, a mysterious spirit imbued with magic.
Players will be able to play with (and fight with!) five different, original characters in Shiness. Each have their own unique skills and abilities, both for fighting and puzzle solving, all with RPG progression. Chado, for example, has the power to summon a boulder on his back to throw and act as a counterweight. Poky’s skills manipulate the world’s Shi to influence electrical currents, while Kayenne exploits powerful telekinetic talents.
As the player levels up and continues to explore the world of Mahera, parchments can be picked up to unlock new skills. These unlocked abilities can take the form of boons, curses, destructive magic and hyper moves.
