  • Effie is a classic 3D platformer title that combines combat, adventure, platforming and puzzles in a unique fantasy story.
  • It tells the story of Galand, an old man equipped with a powerful magic shield in his quest to break his curse.
  • Published temporarily exclusive in June 2019 for the PlayStation®4, it arrives now to PC platform.
  • During the first week it will have a 15% launchment discount.
Tuesday, January 28, 2020. Today Effie, a video game developed by Inverge Studios, will be released on the Steam® and Humble Bundle® PC platform stores. Effie is a 3D platformer title that tells the adventures of Galand, a man equipped with a powerful magic shield who has been cursed with premature old age. On his journey, Galand will have to find a way to break his curse, fighting powerful enemies and exploring a vast red world of fantasy.

One of the best attributes of this title is the magic shield that accompanies Galand in his quest. It provides special abilities to its bearer and will allow Galand to acquire new skills during his journey. It will also allow him to surf at great speed through the vast world of Oblena.

This peculiar world of Oblena, with its unusual red vegetation, is completely invaded by evil creatures. In the shadows, a powerful witch is the cause of all this evil. Therefore, Galand will have to face numerous challenges, fight with a large number of enemies, solve various puzzles and, in the meantime, recover his lost youth.

Effie has already received several recognitions, among them, it’s supported by the PlayStation®Talents initiative, which provides a boost to promising video game studios under the PlayStation® brand. In addition, in 2018 it got a 91% approval among the Square Enix® community through a Square Enix® Collective campaign.

Effie is now available digitally on Steam® and Humble Bundle® with a price of $19.99 ($16,99 during the first week).
