Chameleon Games has announced that primate action-adventure Tamarin is out today on the PC. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team has also released a new trailer that you can find below.
Tamarin channels the energy of 3D platformer classics and explorative Metroidvania shooters with an environmental message for the ages. Players will explore an irresistible interconnected 3D world, brimming with primate platforming and bug-splattering shooter action.
“Leap with the agility of a tamarin as you journey through the Northern wilderness on scenic routes through forests, fjords and mountains, striving to curb the insect invasion dancing to their own destructive beat. Along the way you will collect mysterious electrical fireflies, rescue innocent birds and discover the underground base of the dancing ants while battling to restore the tamarins’ once idyllic natural habitat.”
Director Omar Sawi has brought Tamarin to life together with an all-star cast from Rare’s golden era. To mention a few, Banjo-Kazooie character designer Steve Mayles helped craft the iconic new tamarins. Diddy Kong and Battletoads designer Kev Bayliss provided character concept art. Donkey Kong 64 artist Richard Vaucher leads the art production. And Donkey Kong Country and Starfox Adventures composer David Wise tunes in with a melodic and atmospheric soundtrack.
Omar Sawi, Founder of Chameleon Games, said:
“We’re excited to release Tamarin into the world. Tamarin is a game that appreciates the joy and beauty of nature while combining fun exploratory platforming, arcade shooting and the important topic of preserving the environment we live in. Tamarin is also an ode to the wonder of nature, packaged up in a unique exciting gameplay experience which we can’t wait for players to get their hands on.”
