Explore an incredible and connected 3D world full of platform action and insect-killing shooter action. Move with the agility of a tamarin as you journey into the northern wilderness, passing breathtaking forests, fjords and mountains. On your journey, you’ll be chasing mysterious, electric fireflies, exploring a secret underground world inhabited by dancing ants, saving innocent birds and restoring the previously idyllic natural habitat of tamarins.
“Many species are dying out and their natural habitats are disappearing. I’ve always wanted to do a series of games inspired by the wonderful species and beautiful landscapes of our planet Earth, “said Omar Sawi, founder of Chameleon Games. “Tamarin combines cute characters, beautiful locations, a matching soundtrack and a combination of fun and exploratory platforming and action-shooter gameplay into something that offers eye-opening experience for every gamer.”
The Tamarin project is led by Omar Sawi, who has brought an all-star team from Rare’s Golden Age on board to help him realize his creative vision for Tamarin and revive the style and magical experiences. that made her famous. The creative minds behind such iconic characters as Diddy Kong, Banjo-Kazooie and Battletoads are responsible for the concept art of Tamarin, for pre-production and character design.
The creative mind behind Donkey Kong 64, Richard Vaucher, directs the production of all artistic aspects and brings beautiful animations to life. The composer behind Donkey Kong Country, David Wise, creates a very special atmosphere with his compositions between melodic grace and brand new industrial beats. The whole thing is complemented by the powerful sound effects of action veteran Graeme Norgate (GoldenEye 007, Killer Instinct).
Tamarin will be released on the PlayStation Store in the summer of 2019.
