Chameleon Games, a studio filled with veterans that gave us titles like Banjo-Kazooie and GoldenEye, has just revealed their latest new advnture; a 3D action-adventure set in a beautiful Nordic world called Tamarin. It also features an adorable monkey, which ... bonus.
According to the studio, "Pollution and destruction from ever-expanding insects sets the agile monkey into a fight for his family's survival. Scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 and PC this summer, Tamarin channels the energy of 3D platformer classics and explorative Metroidvania shooters, hand-crafted by a team which includes an all-star cast of veterans from Rare's golden era.
"Explore an incredible interconnected 3D world, brimming with primate platforming and bug-splattering shooter action. Leap with the agility of a tamarin as you journey into the Northern wilderness on scenic routes through forests, fjords and mountains. Along the way you will chase mysterious electrical fireflies, discover a secret underground world of dancing ants, rescue innocent birds, and restore the tamarins' once idyllic natural habitat."
The 3D world will be completely interactive, offering a whole host of reasons for players to jump into the action. From mystical fireflies, to gorgeous landscapes, Tamarin offers a lot of beauty in a one adventerous package.
"A lot of species are going extinct and their natural habitat is being lost and I've always wished to make a game series inspired by the most wonderful species and scenery on Earth," said Omar Sawi, Founder of Chameleon Games. "Tamarin combines cute characters, beautiful locations, a catchy soundtrack and a combination of fun exploratory platforming and action shooter gameplay into something that appeals to a wide multi-gender demographic."
Pre-orders for the game are now live for a chance to get a first-listen to the game's wonderful soundtrack. You can learn more about the latest adventure coming to PlayStation and Steam right here.
