Indie RPG Shiness is continuing its campaign to embarrass even AAA RPG’s with its high production values. Earlier this week, Ynnis Interactive released a new update featuring a short gameplay trailer. It’s the first time anyone’s seen the game in action since it first started funding in 2014, and it looks just as gorgeous in action as it does in screenshots.

shiness3The trailer shows off what you can expect to find in Shiness, including world exploration, the game’s unique fighting game styled combat, and a brief rundown on each of the characters. It’s a short trailer at only about a minute and a half long, but it does a good job showcasing how the game has evolved since it first sought funding,

Shiness is an RPG in the same vein as Legend of Zelda, with a cartoonish art style and PS2 platformer era anthropomorphic characters. It’s been praised for its high production values, especially considering the relatively small $139,865 it go in funding.

There’s been no word on an official release date, but you expect to get your paws on Shiness sometime in 2016.
