The Action RPG Shiness has been released - here's the launch trailer:

Shiness - Launch Trailer


Indie studio Enigami's Action-RPG Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC! Watch the launch trailer promising to take you on a journey through an enthralling universe on the verge of collapse, following the fragmentation of the planet Mahera. After crash-landing in a hostile land, Chado and his friends find themselves in the middle of a conflict between kingdoms.

The Shiness universe was born over 20 years ago from the pen strokes of Samir Rebib, Artistic Director of the studio. Composed of passionate people, the independent studio Enigami went through a successful Kickstarter campaign, allowing the project to grow and gain momentum, until it was supported by Focus Home Interactive. After Enigami put all its energy and passion into Shiness, a child's dream has finally turned a fully-fleshed indie-RPG with a bold personality!

In Shiness, take control of Chado and his four friends as they journey across a fractured world beset by a war between multiple factions. Combat is inspired by traditional fighting games, mixing fast-paced combos, parrying, blocking, and powerful magical abilities distinct for each character. Your party members' usefulness isn't limited to just combat - manipulate the environments around you with abilities such as Kayenne's telekinesis and Askel's far-reaching whip. Gain experience and level up after fights, while progressing in the storyline or by accomplishing numerous side quests. Evolve your characters, learn new skills and spells, and become the hero who will unify the civilizations of Mahera.

First off the controls are horrible, game is nearly unplayable without a controller. With a controller can be problematic as well. I have a Logitech gamepad that I am using and no matter what setting changes I make the menu and the game is consantly taking the Left thumbstick Up as Down and Down as Up. I've inverted the axis in the game settings to no avail and even tried adjusting the BaseUI.ini with 0 luck.
I remember not backing this game on Kickstarter for some reason.
Not regretting it.

Not ready to say the same yet. But… I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out the K&B controls and some things were working, but not much. Plan to try again. Also have a Logitech controller, but haven't focused much on that yet, but also exactly what you quoted there with the controller when I did try it. Forward movement is down and backward is up. I could almost have posted that exact post on Steam, but did not.

Game sure is pretty at 4K though.
