The super cute platform adventure game Tamarin will release on PC and Xbox One on September 10th.
Given the fun and simple nature of the genre, it comes as no surprise that platformers are still amongst the most popular gaming styles. With the release of Ratchet & Clank just around the corner, it is nice to see other games that put a unique and interesting spin on this classic build. Tamarin has certainly done that with its awe-striking and aesthetically gratifying graphics.
During this years Gamescom, the developers also released a new trailer for their endlessly charming title. The trailer shows exactly how beautiful the game truly is, while also giving a close look at what to expect from gameplay.
In Tamarin, you play as an adorable little monkey on a journey to save his family from the nasty insect invasion. Run, jump, bounce and swim as you discover everything that lies hidden in the beautiful world around you. This game was developed with artistry at the forefront, creating an environment that is both soothing and engaging, while still being fun for all ages.
Yesterday we had some new World Premiere announcements and ports for Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass during Microsoft’s X019 Inside Xbox live-stream. Xbox’s library continues to grow with its own exclusives and third-party games, and today, we get to add another one to that list!

Now, the creators behind Tamarin, Chameleon Games, have posted a Tweet stating that the game is currently in development for the Xbox One! It probably won’t have the same release date but I’m happy it will be accessible to more people all the same.
Tamarin first caught our eyes during this years E3 Event and has aweeehed many fans of the genre. The game is about the cutest little Tamarin jumping, running and exploring a vibrant and beautiful crafted world.
