Shu is a sidescrolling platformer currently under development.

In September 2014 it was revealed on official Sony blogs that Shu is to be released on multiple Sony platforms, including the PS3, PS4 and PSVita. There are also plans to release Shu for PC.

Development & Gameplay

Shu was created by Secret Lunch and pitched to Coatsink Software. Since then the two development studios have been working in unison to bring the game to life. Shu features a plethora of hand-drawn characters who each have unique abilities to help Shu traverse various dangerous terrains, as a terrible storm continues it’s relentless pursuit.

In November 2014 Coatsink published a development Q&A, with details regarding the early conceptualization of Shu as well as development notes.
