Shiny, robotic platformer gets new themes & avatars for PS4

Publisher SOEDESCO revealed that players can brighten their PlayStation®4 account with themes and avatars of family friendly platformer Shiny. The themes and avatars are available in two different bundles, one of which also includes the base game.

Five gleaming avatars
The five avatars each show a different robot character from the game Shiny. These lovable robots, called Douglas, Lucy, Kramer, Giorgio and Norelius, all represent different members of the development team from Garage 227 that created Shiny.

Two luminous themes
In addition to the avatars, there are also two glossy new themes. One is a dynamic theme called ‘hold on’. It shows how the main character Kramer transmits his power to revive another robot. Sharing life energy to save others is an important topic in Shiny. The second theme, called ‘working class heroes’, shows the colorful cast of robots that feature in Shiny.

Shiny’s Features:

  • Enjoy a family friendly platformer with an old school appearance
  • Help other robots on your journey to escape the dying planet Aurora
  • Move around purposefully to save energy for fellow robots
  • Use various power-ups such as jetpacks and energy spheres
  • Discover 20 huge 2.5D levels with detailed living backgrounds

More About Shiny

Robots can have a heart!

Left to fend for himself after mankind abandoned the doomed planet Aurora, robot Kramer 227 must find a way to harvest energy and rescue his robotic friends before Aurora crashes into its sun. In his journey, Kramer will probe the planet itself and overcome challenging obstacles, all while trying to conserve his limited life energy to power himself and his friends on their way to safety.

Kramer will gather and share energy with his fellow robots, helping them escape dire situations and predicaments. He will have to jump and explore every platform in every corner of the 20 extensive levels to find all of his friends. Energy is running low on Aurora, so Kramer will have to collect batteries or use generators to recharge, as every action drains his power. Various power-ups collected along the way, such as jetpacks, energy spheres and temperature regulators, can help him on this crucial journey.

Shiny is about saving lives, so it contains no blood or violence.

Shiny is available for the Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
