It has been a year since the release of the hugely successful Shu Caverns of the Nighjars , yet when I think of the most recent kick-ass platforms, it still appears to be right up there at the top of the list! From the amazing developers that brought you the hilarious Gang Beats and a number of brilliant Samsung VR titles, Coatsink Studies pulled it out of the bag yet again and produced a truly stunning platforming experience with one the best soundtracks of the last 12 months.
You play as Shu, whose village has been destroyed by a terrible storm. On your journey of survival, you will explore and conquer your way through 5 diverse lands in 15 huge and gorgeous levels, finding an abundance of collectables and stumbling across an original cast of 10 characters, all of which have their own unique powers.
Shu is yet another example of how indie platformers can be hugely successful on a console as well as helping to introduce an alternative gaming experience to those console gamers that confine themselves to AAA games.
If you haven’t already checked it out, Shu is available now on PC and PS4 and coming soon to PSVITA. I myself am really looking forward to the PSVITA release, the console is still lacking in decent indie titles and I feel this will be a great addition.
