Tamarin is a third-person action-adventure game set in beautiful Nordic scenery, starring the world’s cutest monkey. starring a monkey fighting for his family’s survival. It will launch digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam this summer for $29.99 / £22.99 / €27.99. A Deluxe Edition that includes the soundtrack will be available for $39.99 / £29.99 / €35.99.

Tamarin’s concept art, pre-production, and character design are handled by “creators of iconic characters such as Diddy Kong, Banjo-Kazooie, and Battletoads,” its art production by Donkey Kong 64 artist Richard Vaucher, its music by Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise, and its sound effects by Graeme Norgate (GoldenEye 007, Killer Instinct).


Pollution and destruction from ever-expanding insects sets the agile monkey into a fight for his family’s survival. Scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 and PC this summer, Tamarin channels the energy of 3D platformer classics and explorative Metroidvania shooters, hand-crafted by a team which includes an all-star cast of veterans from Rare’s golden era.

Explore an incredible interconnected 3D world, brimming with primate platforming and bug-splattering shooter action. Leap with the agility of a tamarin as you journey into the Northern wilderness on scenic routes through forests, fjords and mountains. Along the way you will chase mysterious electrical fireflies, discover a secret underground world of dancing ants, rescue innocent birds, and restore the tamarins’ once idyllic natural habitat.

Tamarin is directed by Omar Sawi, who has brought on an all-star cast from Rare’s golden era to help execute his creative vision for Tamarin and recapture the style and magical experiences they were famous for. Creators of iconic characters such as Diddy Kong, Banjo-Kazooie, and Battletoads are responsible for Tamarin’s concept art, pre-production, and character design. Donkey Kong 64 artist Richard Vaucher leads the art production and provides energetic, responsive animations. Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise adds to the atmosphere with compositions of melodic beauty and a brand-new style of catchy industrial beats. This is complemented by impactful sound effects by action-title veteran Graeme Norgate (GoldenEye 007, Killer Instinct).

“A lot of species are going extinct and their natural habitat is being lost and I’ve always wished to make a game series inspired by the most wonderful species and scenery on Earth,” said Chameleon Games founder Omar Sawi in a press release. “Tamarin combines cute characters, beautiful locations, a catchy soundtrack and a combination of fun exploratory platforming and action shooter gameplay into something that appeals to a wide multi-gender demographic.”

Cute little tamarin.
In a Nordic environment.
With a laser pistol.
Why of course.

The gameplay sounds potentially interesting, but wait&see, it looks like the Tesco meal of Rare games, a Jet Forge Gemini with reused assets from another failed project.

I wonder whose brilliant idea it was to give the protagonist a fucking uzi.
It feels completely incongruent with everything else shown in the trailer.

I'll be honest, it was kind of horrifying when the cute cuddly main character brutally slaughtered the enemy ant things

Fur Fighters gave fluffy reatures guns in a nice way. I liked that one. It also had more cartoony graphics than this mish mash of fury cuteness + realistic textures.

Huuuh it didn't make much of a splash.
19 reviews, seems very unpolished with control and camera issues, sold for 40€...
