How to kill a Shiftling 101
Description
Release date: Autumn 2014


What the hell is this?
Born out of a game jam in Norway, prototyped within 5 days leading to the winning entry - this is Shiftlings.

In this physics based, puzzle platformer you control two, not so bright but lovable, alien space janitors which are the main attraction in an intergalactic reality tv-show without their knowing. While we watch over their shoulders, they are supposed to solve different small tasks on five themed worlds with ten levels each and they are ready to do pretty much everything, from jumping on each-other, to dragging and dropping and using that tube till it bursts.

The fun twist is that those two are connected by an air hose through which they can shift their size which is crucial to survive the hazardous challenges the two get thrown into. As helpful as the tube can be it will also provide additional challenges.
The visual look consists of colorful, detailed, quirky, cartoony 3D graphics with fun looking characters and specially crafted worlds. Slapstick humor and voice-overs included!

The game-show is hosted by your very own Zookod Neutrino, not only giving you the run-down and lookout between the different planets and their levels, he will also not stop from commenting your every step as a player.

Shiftlings can be played alone while the player controls both characters as well as shift size between them but the most fun comes from playing locally with your friend.

A real friendship tester!

"A great man is always willing to be little" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
