Heathens rejoice!* Independent developer Enigami has announced some awesome news – furry action-RPG Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom has gone gold.

This means the game’s development and code is finalized and ready to be put into distribution (Editor’s Note: Shiness will be digital only). Enigami promised a new trailer for this week, alongside a new announcement “that will make you very happy.”

Once released, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom will be available across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via publisher Focus Home Interactive:

Shiness is an Action-RPG developed by French independent studio Enigami, promising to take you on a journey through an enthralling universe on the verge of collapse, following the fragmentation of planet Mahera…

Play as Chado and his companions, traveling through the Celestial islands on their flying ship. After crash-landing on one of the most hostile of the Celestial islands, you find yourself in the middle of a conflict across multiple kingdoms. However, this volatile situation might find a peaceful outcome, with Chado’s newfound unique ability to perceive and communicate with the ‘Shiness’, a mysterious spirit imbued with magic.

Key Features

  • Travel through an enthralling and interactive world as Chado and his 4 companions, and develop your characters.
  • Hyper-dynamic combat mixing magic with combos, parries, and blocks like a traditional arena fighter.
  • Develop 2 types of skills (physical attacks and magic) and unlock new talents and spells Explore and interact with a vast world made of multiple environments thanks to you and your companions’ special powers and skills.
  • Numerous quests and side-quests will give you the opportunity to develop your characters and their reputation.

*Editor’s Note: I don’t actually believe furries are heathens, nor am I a religious man.

    Furries actually have a good history with games for some reason.
    Star Fox, Solatorobo, Tail Concerto, Sky Gunner…Klonoa, all pretty good.
