Who is the man under the mask? What is this place? Why does the same girl always come into his dreams?
Play SHIO to find the answers, for the mysterious man and for yourself.
SHIO is a challenging platformer featuring responsive, fluid gameplay action and an atmospheric, unique art style. The game combines a satisfying chain-jumping mechanic inspired by old kung-fu films with surprising obstacles. As the game progresses, mechanics and elements from previous levels are combined into brutally difficult levels that feel incredibly satisfying to master.
You play as a mysterious warrior with a hidden past, using his skills and yours to work your way through a punishing maze of an ancient Chinese village built by unseen hands. Over time, the story unfolds and you learn more about the man's past, helping him find a purpose beyond the maze.
