A new RPG from French indie studio Enigami has shown off a trailer for their new game called Shiness: The Lightening Kingdom. Shiness was successfully funded on Kickstarter on June 9th 2014 beating it’s goal of $100,000 by almost $40,000. Thought the game was initially planning for a 2015 release they’ve changed to a more realistic goal of getting the game out in 2016 but many of the backers have already been playing the beta.
When the studio needed a bit more funding to be able to make the game as good as they wanted it to be Focus answered their call. Cedric Lagarrigue, Managing Partner of Focus had the following to say about their supporting role,
Focus Home Interactive is working with international studios, but also naturally partners with French studios now renowned such as DontNod, Cyanide, Eugen Systems, Spiders Games, and more. Discovering and supporting new talented local studios, and helping them grow is something deeply anchored in Focus’ DNA. Enigami is one of these young and passionate French studios Focus Home Interactive would love to see emerge in this very competitive industry.
