Today, indie platformer Shiny has made its debut on PlayStation 4. The game is now available in the digital store and will be available in physical stores as of tomorrow 2/27. Shiny tells the heartwarming story of a robot named Kramer 227, who needs to escape the ill-fated planet of Aurora together with his robot friends. The family-friendly game, developed by Brazilian studio Garage 227, is admired for its amazing music and old school vibe.
That main character is the result of a lengthy creative process of drawing and designing. The original concept drawings of Kramer 227 reveal that robots come in many shapes and sizes. The name of Shiny’s developer, Garage 227, was chosen to honor their first main character Kramer 227.
Shiny’s message to the world
The main premise of Shiny is that life and energy are precious resources. Every move Kramer makes consumes energy, which can be replenished by collecting batteries or finding generators. Collecting enough energy is essential to keep Kramer and his friends alive long enough to escape planet Aurora before it crashes into a blazing sun.
