Description

Effie is our tribute to the classic 3D action-adventure games. Platforming, puzzles and fighting mechanics are back again and renewed for PC and PlayStation 4!

The game tells the story of a man who, cursed by a witch to be old, will seek a way to regain his youth. During his adventure, he will find all kinds of difficulties and he will have a powerful magical shield as a traveling companion.

We all remember with nostalgia those awesome games like Rayman 3, MediEvil, Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter sagas... But what they all have in common is that they don't feel as good as they used to, because their mechanics, graphics and sound have aged. In Effie, we are using this references to get the same feels you had, and making them true again, but with renewed and modernized controls and gameplay!

History

The project came up thanks to the collaboration with PlayStation®Talents in early 2018. We wanted to make a game that really captured the essence of PlayStation, and, with that goal in mind, the genre was clear to us.

We wanted to recreate those first 3D platform games of PlayStation 2. Therefore, Jak & Daxter, Rayman 3 and Rachet & Clank are our main references. In addition, we wanted to create a new original story. From there, old Galand, his shield Runestone and the Red Plains of Oblena turned up.

Effie will be released during Q1 of 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Q2 of 2019 for Steam (PC).
