Bordeaux, France – April 4th, 2013. Following its approval by the Greenlight Community, the indie studio Shiro Games is happy to announce the release of its action-adventure game Evoland. The game is available for both PC and Mac, and will cost €9.99 / £6.99. Players will be able to download Evoland via Steam, gog.com or the Shiro Games website. French, English and German versions will be immediately available.
Initially the winner of the Ludum Dare competition, Evoland is back with a new enhanced version, covering 20 years of gaming evolution.
Sebastien Vidal, CEO of Shiro Games, said : «Evoland is our first game and it feels great to have both the approval of the Ludum Dare jury and the Greenlight Community. However we don't have much time for celebrations as we are currently working on the iOS version of the game." Shiro Games plans to release Evoland on iOS by the end of April 2013.
Evoland is a journey through the history of action/adventure gaming, allowing to unlock new technologies, gameplay systems and graphic upgrades as the player progresses through the game. Inspired by cult series like The Legend of Zelda or Final Fantasy, Evoland will take you from monochrome to full 3D graphics and from active time battles to real time boss fights, all with plenty of humor and references to many classic games.
