Game Overview

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is a 2D side-scrolling platform game developed and published by Wayforward Technologies.  It is a kickstarter funded project and is set for release in October 2014 for the Wii U, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows.

In our story, Shantae is roused from a deep sleep, suddenly alert. She plunges into the moonlit forest in search of answers. In nearby Scuttle Town she discovers a mysterious trapdoor, and beyond that, a luminous subterranean cavern. A familiar voice calls out, drawing Shantae to a beautiful fountain. Touching its waters she is immediately spirited away to the fabled Genie Realm. At her feet a magical seal swells as some powerful evil seeks escape. The chamber trembles with a deep, bellowing roar and everything goes white. Shantae sits upright, back in her bed. Was it just a dream? Or a vision of things to come?
