More announcements, full Steam ahead!
Since the successful Kickstarter at the end of March, big changes.
The project grew too complex to remain within Amazu Media, so following months went to finding and setting up a new team to continue with the funds gathered.
Many thanks still go to all Igor's help at Amazu, without whom the game would be very different today.

In August, one of the backers and I formed Tiny Red Camel [] , the developer studio now behind the game, and things stepped up.
This partnership also helps ensure dynamic music remains a core focus throughout the game.

Many here have asked about gameplay.

The player unlocks Island phases, connecting puzzles and switching between 2 characters with different interactions. A sneak peek on Li's mechanic notes:

Think jigsaw archeology, no inventory, more animations:)
The other character Shri puts together musical puzzles.
If you haven't yet, try Shrug Song [] an early PC demo, to test the core aspects of his feature.

A new teaser for Chapter 1 comes in Oct, gearing to release a first version before the end of the year.
So stay tuned and check out the latest kickstarter updates if you want more details as to the process.

We're really excited about getting this out there, so tell your friends, take your pick of social media on Shrug Island [] and together we'll get this Greenlit!


106% funded, Shrug Island is on the way!
Release date: November 2014
Shrug Island - a 2D musical puzzle adventure for desktops (PC/Mac) and tablets (iOS/Android).
In this game, you play as 2 separated friends reconnecting with a living home they've been away from for a season, and trying to meet. You switch between the duo, use their different abilities to sing to their surroundings, assemble and collect parts of the world. In this way you will solve puzzles as you explore and bring together animated phases of an unusual story.

Based on the existing world from an awarded animation and the research of 2 previous mini-games, Shrug Island is a large point + click adventure, currently in stage of alpha prototype. With the help of Kickstarter, we're working on the first of 4 chapters, each with average playtime of 60-90min. Help us get this game greenlit so we can bring you the rest!

Its a game concept 2 years in the making based off inspirations from animation to games, nature walks and museums, engaged audiences, and the support of an amazing network. On our development blog[] you can see what's in the works. Or, test parts of this research process available on our Kickstarter page[].

The Shrug world is a place that changes with the seasons. It's an Island that speaks to its people with music, a place once a year covered by the ocean tides. Its the home of the Shrugs, beings deeply connected to nature and shape shifting with it. In this game you'll awaken and maintain, and change the natural life cycles of this unusual 2D world, through several of its kids.
