Crush large rocks with pure strength to open it up, or use telekinetic powers to activate ancient mechanisms and discover a back entry!

Shiness is an Action RPG which, in addition to its captivating and immersive universe, provides a character development system with immense freedom to the player during exploration and fighting phases.

Explore the lands of Gendys Island with your 5 companions.

Your hero and friends have different affinities toward Shi elements (water, fire, air, earth), which allow them to interact with their surroundings. Move a rock with telekinetic powers to open the way for your group, or light a torch to activate a mechanism... explore every nook and cranny to find objects and equipment that boosts your stats, or to discover parchments that teach you new skills.

Specialize in certain areas and discover new elements such as thunder, a combination of fire and wind, to unlock new spells and skills. Build the best team to match your style of gameplay, and the quests you'll have to tackle. The quests can be completed in various ways, but your choices during the adventure, and the characters in your group, will influence the main storyline as well as the rewards you receive.


Discover a rich and diverse universe: from the flying city of Mantara, to the plains of Gendys and Gromiz's caves. Shiness' locations are as fascinating as they are deadly! Interact with the surroundings using your characters' powers to progress in the story, discover rare items and even uncover whole secret areas!

While your characters' magic and skills are important during fights, they are also essential throughout the entire game to progress through the world of Shiness. Rosalya's affinity with fire can light up the way in deep dark dungeons and discover precious items, Poky's mechanical

knowledge allows him to activate complex gears, and Askel's whip is able to seize objects otherwise out of reach. During your travels, you're free to explore everywhere. Talk with every character you meet, to unlock side quests, unearth treasures, and acquire parchments - necessary to teach your characters new techniques.

Fight System

Shiness introduces a hyper-dynamic fight system that combines magic spells with classic fighting game mechanics. Upgrade your magic skills as well as your physical characteristics, and become a fearless fighter.

Take part in hyper-dynamic duels, where your companions and foes can intervene at any time to replace the lead fighter or help themp if needed.

Ask your teammates to heal you when your life is low, or to consistently cast a spell to boost your strength at the start of every fight.

Exploring your surroundings before a battle could help you find the right pieces of equipment to improve your stats, and parchments that teach you new disciplines.

The disciplines that give access to physical techniques will teach you new and increasingly devastating strike combos. The Shi disciplines will let your characters learn aggressive or defensive spells, some will boost your companions' abilities, and others lower your enemies' stats.

The power of your spells also depends on the affinities of your characters with the Shi elements (fire, water, earth, air). Finally, the hyper disciplines will let you learn ultimate strikes to unleash at appropriate times during fights!

Once in the arena, it's up to you to adopt the best timing for chain punches, kicks, magic attacks and destructive combos.

This is why he was so enthusiastic to help his friend Chado's ambitious project to build a flying airship. Poky's incredible mechanical and engineering skills mainly come from his ability to manipulate magnetic fields and influence electrical currents. Poky can therefore easily repair machines, and has access to a beam that can attract enemy robots towards him.
