Chameleon Games’ third-person action-adventure Tamarin is now available for pre-order on PlayStation 4 with 10% off its usual $29.99 / £22.99 / €27.99 price.

Pre-orders include an exclusive first listen to a tune from the game’s soundtrack. Fans of acclaimed composer David Wise, known for the atmospheric Donkey Kong Country soundtracks, will be excited to know that it’s a composition of melodic beauty, inspired by scenic Norwegian Fjords.

Tamarin stars the world’s cutest monkey on a quest to save his family from ever-expanding insects intent on industrializing the forest and driving other species to extinction.

What to expect

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.

Director Omar Sawi 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. The creators of iconic characters such as Diddy Kong, Banjo-Kazooie, and Battletoads are responsible for Tamarin’s concept art, pre-production and character design. In addition, Donkey Kong 64 artist Richard Vaucher leads the art production and provides energetic, responsive animations. Donkey Kong Country composer David Wise adds a catchy and melodic soundtrack. This is complemented by impactful sound effects by action-title veteran Graeme Norgate (GoldenEye 007, Killer Instinct).

Tamarin is due for release this summer.
