Introducing Li

Li is inquisitive , thorough and perceptive. She takes as long as it takes to get where she´s going, and where others have forgotten things, she remembers them. Literally.

Li's personal skill called vision mode, is therefore a long and powerful process. In gameplay it goes like this: transform and seek, find and assemble, return object to its holder.

It's her body's ability to shift inwards, reflecting the surrounding world in meta-time, subconscious state, or something else entirely.

Where Shri channels shapes of change, Li embodies fluidity in permanence.
Li and Shri are two sides of a pattern whose contrasts align to return life to a slumbering world...
One day, this will make for an interesting dance.

Introducing Shri

Shri, one of the two young Shrugs whose homecoming you follow in this first chapter of Shrug Island, is dynamic, sensitive, a tad impatient, emotional to the fingertips, in all senses, a mover.

Like all the Shrugs, Shri transforms berween air and earth forms as the yearly tides rise and ebb on the Island. Each Shrug also has an individual connection to the Island that helps awaken its world.

Shri’s gift is to take the form of their surroundings at special locations shown by the Glow Plants. Transformed, Shri can channel five musical notes from the plant that will move nearby pieces of the Island.

A Shrug's skill stays strong in the company of another and so Shri’s fate is bound together with his dear friend, Li. Though the winds have pushed them to land separately, they will need each other for the world to open up to their journey. We will soon meet Li and learn more about her gifts and the journey ahead for the two Shrug friends.
