Adorable Platformer Tamarin From Ex-Rare Devs Is Out Now On PS4 And PC

Sometimes a game will be announced that immediately catches my eye and piques my interest, and I’ll keep that eye on it all the way up until release. Occasionally though, it can get lost in the hubbub that is the games industry and I’ll open up Steam or the PlayStation store and suddenly realise that it’s out!

That’s the case with Tamarin, an ultra-adorable platforming adventure from Chameleon Games – an indie powerhouse filled with some classic Rare veterans (David Wise on the soundtrack plus those Jet Force Gemini ant enemies is a heavy nostalgia trip). I’d been following the game for the longest time, only to accidentally sleep on its release, so consider this your reminder that the game is out now on both PlayStation 4 and PC!

You can grab the PlayStation 4 version digitally on the PlayStation Store here:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
