Chameleon Games have today revealed Tamarin, a third-person action-adventure game created by legends from the golden era of Rare.
Tamarin is set in the Nordic era, with pollution and destruction from ever-expanding insects setting the agile monkey into a fight for survival. The game has ‘bug splattering shooter action’ set cross forests, fjords and mountains, chasing electrical fireflies, discover secret underground worlds of dancing ants, rescue innocent birds, and restore your natural habitat.
Check out the announcement trailer below;
Tamarin is directed by Omar Sawi, leading a team of developers who have build games such as Diddy Kong, Battletoads and Banjo-Kazooie, with Donkey Kong 64 artist Richard Vaucher leading the art production. Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise is on music, with sound effects from GoldenEye veteran Graeme Norgate.
Omar Sawi, Founder of Chameleon Games;
“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. 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.”
