First Major update!



Greetings everyone,

Shiness released a few weeks ago and we've carefully read and listened to your feedback since launch to work on a first update improving the game.

We focused on the most common reports and feedback to deploy a patch helping as many players as possible.

This is a great week for Shiness as its first update is available today on Steam and the complete Original Soundtrack will be available tomorrow (disc version and digital version)!

The patch will also be available on consoles by the end of the month with some console-specific bug fixes such as: ambient sounds are properly played, AOE spells’ visual effects are properly displayed on the ground, the X and Y axis camera setting is now saved.

One of the major improvements this patch brings to the game is about the camera system in combats. What you need to know about this feature:
  • There are two camera modes in combats: Autolock (the camera automatically targets the enemy) and Free (the player can move the camera freely). You can change modes in the Settings menu (Combat camera autolock: ON/OFF).
  • Both modes are improved with the patch.
  • The default camera for combats was Autolock mode in the launch version (Combat camera autolock: ON) and is now Free mode in the patched version (Combat camera autolock: OFF).
Please find below the full patch notes for the update (contains some story spoilers).

Thanks once again for your help and commitment to Shiness!

Have a nice time in Mahera,
-Team Enigami

Watch the Launch Trailer!



Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom is available today!

Watch our launch trailer promising to take you on a journey through an enthralling universe on the verge of collapse, following the fragmentation of the planet Mahera.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eimcnM6WtVM
After crash-landing in a hostile land, Chado and his friends find themselves in the middle of a conflict between kingdoms.

The Shiness universe was born over 20 years ago from the pen strokes of Samir Rebib, Artistic Director of the studio. We've put all our energy and passion into Shiness, and a child's dream has finally turned a fully-fleshed indie-RPG with a bold personality!



In Shiness, take control of Chado and his four friends as they journey across a fractured world beset by a war between multiple factions. Combat is inspired by traditional fighting games, mixing fast-paced combos, parrying, blocking, and powerful magical abilities distinct for each character.

Your party members' usefulness isn't limited to just combat - manipulate the environments around you with abilities such as Kayenne's telekinesis and Askel's far-reaching whip.



Gain experience and level up after fights, while progressing in the storyline or by accomplishing numerous side quests. Evolve your characters, learn new skills and spells, and become the hero who will unify the civilizations of Mahera.

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom is available today for download! Embark upon your epic journey today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
