3,028 backers pledged $139,865 to help bring this project to life.

Shiness is now available!

Dear Backers,

This is Hazem Hawash, Producer of Shiness and CEO of Enigami. I’m very proud to say that on this great day, Shiness has finally been released! 

 We couldn't have done this without you - please rest assured that our small team will never forget how awesome you have been with us. On behalf of everyone here at Enigami, we want to extend a big "thank you!", and also inform you that you will receive your game key(s) today by e-mail. 

 We advise you to take a look in your spam email folder in the coming hours, just in case the e-mail with the game key has been mistakenly flagged as spam. Please contact us if you have not received anything by the end of the day. 

 We have been able to secure a limited number of console versions as Kickstarter rewards. Thus, if you backed 45$ or more, you are allowed to select a console reward token. Note that it may be possible you won't receive anything if you have not completed the survey or didn't respond to the email we sent last week. If you're in that situation, then please complete the survey ASAP and send it back to us and we'll do our best to get you a code – we only have limited numbers! 

These year has been hard, but thanks to your support with our motivation and passion, we're proud to deliver Shiness today. Although we may be unable to deliver every reward listed at the beginning, we should be able to ship the majority of them, including digital content (in-game content, OST, manga and more) – stay tuned for more info about physical rewards soon. 

 We're eager to see you playing Shiness, and we hope you both have a good time and it match your expectations! We'll be following your let's play videos, we'll be reading your feedback on the forums, and we’re already planning to prepare a patch based on your feedback. 

Thanks once more for your support. We wish you a great adventure on Shiness!

      @Ynnis Interactive, You're welcome, don't worry, I already sent another email last night as there were some issues with the mail containing the key. It said my pack does not include the Chado extra skin and extra Shi Bonus nor the Chado extra Technique Bonus despite the fact I have the Askel pack. ^^'

    5. Ynnis Interactive 8-time creator on April 20, 2017

      @Vlyff, we will answer to that question in the next update that is coming today ;)

      I did a lower tier but am interested in getting the console version. Is there any way for me to add to my amount so that I can get to the $45 or purchase the console game?

      Just picked this up on Tuesday for my PS4 :) Wanted to nab Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap too, but only got this for now. Very cool! Its clear you did an awesome job with this, and I can't wait to dive into it more! Right now I'm juggling a ton of RPGs thanks to the backlog, and if I play too much Shiness atm, I'll forget how to fight in Tales of Berseria :P But I got it, and I've enjoyed the first two hours. Awesome job, you guys! :D

      @Justin ram Contact Ynnis Interactive in private and they'll help you. Do not forget to mention your platform and what was your pledge.

      I backed and still have not received a key for Steam, what do I need to do to get that?

      Stas Oskin on April 19, 2017

      As the price the same on steam and PSN, just refund me and I will go and buy there. I still want to play it despite the recent events.

      Here, problem is solved - unless you trying to save several cents on back of your backers by forcing them to get a version they can't use.

      Luis Miguel Calzada Lorente on April 19, 2017

      Like many people, I'm very upset with the whole key situation. I got a Steam one, but my PC is so crappy I can barely play, so I wanted a console code (I didn't mind PS4 or Xbox One).
      I can understand that being the first console project some things don't go as planned, but if you agreed to give people the option to choose either PC or console, stick with it.
      Besides, I find infuriating that some press sites did get console codes to review the game, and backers don't. I know the game need exposure, but if you got enough codes for press, why not for the backers? And with Focus Home as backup, seeing how they release almost all of their games on consoles, they should have helped.

      So yeah, waiting for a response (sent few emails and tweets during the past days and nothing yet), because this is extremely bad management on their part

    13. Ynnis Interactive 8-time creator on April 19, 2017

      Hello everyone!
      We have a lot of private message we are dealing with so it may takes time to answer to everyone.If you still haven't receive your key, please send a private message, we are working day & night to deliver all your keys.

      For those who hasn't any PC to run the game, we deeply understand that and we will come back to you with a solution within the end of this week!

      Thanks again for your support, we wouldn't make this game without you!

    14. Tanner Havington on April 19, 2017

      Nice to know I got a steam key when I requested a ps4 key in your survey. Very disappointed in that considering I have no pc. What was the point of the survey if we are just gonna get pc codes anyways? Also very up set that I spent $30 on this and from the sounds of the email with the game code I'm not getting any of my stuff from the Chado pack.

    15. Debeauvais Jérémy on April 19, 2017

      Vous avez dupé vos backers. J'ai payé 30$. Le jeu coûte 30$ sur Xbox One.
      Vous avez clairement menti à vos backers. Vous avez délibérément attendu le jour de la sortie pour annoncer que certains backers n'auraient pas accès aux clés sur console alors que vous avez forcément du apprendre bien avant que vous n'auriez pas des clés pour tout le monde.
      Vous avez délibérément ignoré mes messages 1 mois avant la sortie du jeu quand je vous posais des questions sur ça.

      Mais le pire, c'est que vous scandez avoir un nombre limité de clés mais ça ne vous empêche pas de donner des clés à des influenceurs pour le marketing de votre jeu. Sauf que vous oubliez pas que sans ce Kickstarter, vous n'en seriez pas là.

      Que vous soyez un studio indépendant, que vous ayez appris par la suite que les clés étaient payantes, c'est VOTRE problème. Pas le notre. Vous ne pouvez pas jouer avec l'argent des gens comme cela. Vous ne pouvez pas retourner votre veste sans assumer. Personnellement, j'ai payé 30$ pour un jeu qui coûte 30$. C'est tout bonnement inacceptable que je ne puisse pas bénéficier d'une clé sur Xbox One. Qui plus est que vous n'avez jamais indiqué avant que ces clés seraient exclusives à certains packs.

      Aujourd'hui, vous m'informez que j'ai reçu une clé Steam ; et vous ignorez tout le temps le vrai problème avec votre politique de l'autruche. Je ne peux pas jouer à ce jeu sur PC. Et la seule solution que vous me proposez, c'est d'utiliser la clé Steam ? Je me demande vraiment si vous lisez ce que l'on vous écrit, ou si vous n'avez juste aucun respect ni reconnaissance pour les gens qui ont soutenu et financé votre projet.
      En quoi dois-je repayer le jeu une seconde fois ? D'autant plus que j'ai payé l'exact même prix sur Xbox One : 30$. Donc fournissez-moi cette satané clé !

    16. Alessandra Nixdorf on April 19, 2017

      I see it has been a common problem and complaint, but I haven't received all the keys I pledged for on my e-mail, so.. yeah. Kinda waiting for some kind of clarification.

    17. Ludovic Acrobanjo on April 19, 2017

      Bonjour ! toujours pas reçu ma clé :/ des infos ?

    18. Atrucian on April 19, 2017

      @Keith Shaw I did as well and didn't get any answer for now. I suppose it'll take some days to resolve the issue.

      @Matthew Baldo

      I have been using the kickstarter messaging system that I hae had a few replies from a while ago and have also sent one email that i did not get a reply to, cant remember the address off hand though

    20. John Parry on April 19, 2017

      @Keith Shaw
      I wouldn't accept a key if the same wasn't being done for other people in the same position. In all honesty, I could be wrong but I do get the feeling that the offer was no more than an attempt to shut me up.

      For me, this isn't really about the game or even the $30, even though are important. It's about the fact that they are clearly in the wrong here and that needs to change. If they've had issues with the PS4 keys then it's "their" problem and their responsibility alone to fix what they've broken, to try and push that responsibility onto their backers with a "well, buy it yourself" is absolutely disgusting.

      I'm in no position to speak on behalf of other people and make choices for them but I do think it is really important that people are aware of the options that they have available to them in response to this and that they make a choice based on what is the correct way for them to deal with this.

      I've been completely open with them about everything that I was doing and going to and I've done the same when posting on here because the lack of information has been a major issue for far too long on here.

      If I do end up getting a refund, I certainly won't go anywhere near this game or anything else that I see carrying the name of Ynnis Interactive, Engami or Focus Home Interactive at any point. I appreciate that me not buying their stuff isn't really going to effect them in any way but I'm just not willing to support a business that behaves in this way.

    21. Matthew Baldo on April 19, 2017

      Silly question but what email are people using?

    22. Jason Rayes on April 19, 2017

      As backers were we supposed to get the manga that folks who preordered it got? I thought I remembered reading in one of the updates that we would get the same rewards as preorder folks. (After all, we essentially pre-preordered)

      Keith Shaw on April 19, 2017

      I have sent two messages in the last 24hrs and not received a reply, I am pleased for John if he does manage to get a PS4 Key as he has done the most work to facilitate the situation. I am though a little annoyed that the rest of us have not had a response on the matter, I understand it is a busy time for them but they should put their backers first as after all if not for us they would not have a game to release....

    24. Matthew Baldo on April 19, 2017

      The sad thing is that if they had offered a way to pay the cost to them for the console key I would have been happy if they would add that to the steam key.

      Backers can be your best advocates as we put in money early. Treat us well and we will talk your project up to the moon.

      I will still offer to pay the cost they pay for a console copy to add it to the steam key they sent me. I'd love to play the game on my Xbox as my PC just won't do it.

      Right now I'm not saying anything positive about the game because I can't play it. I'd love to advocate for a game I wanted to play from the moment I saw it.

      Adam Slauenwhite on April 19, 2017

      Glad to hear they are listening to us and trying to help us out based on John Parry's response. I'm still waiting on a message back myself but its probably due to a large backlog of messages they are dealing with.

      Scot S on April 19, 2017

      Congrats on the release. Got a Steam key, but am not into DRM - Need a GOG key (or a refund).

      Really wanted a PS4 key, but clearly that was mishandled since nothing was stated that a specific tier needed to be backed. Nor was there an add-on or other way to ensure a PS4 key. A bit of a FAIL, guys.

    27. John Parry on April 19, 2017

      And again.
      Hello John,

      I'm very sorry you are disapointed, we tried to do everything but as an indie studio we had to focus on the release of the game first, i really hope you understand that doing a game on console was a very hard task for a first experience we had.

      Is that a PS4 US code or a PS4 EUR you want? Sorry if we already ask.

      And sorry again for my bad english :).


      I do understand that you are an indie developer and that mistakes have been made but it's YOUR responsibility to deal with those mistakes and not your backers responsibility.

      I would prefer an EU code but I do have access to both, either would be fine.

      Not at all, you'll never need to apologise for your English. Nobody should ever complain about that.

    28. John Parry on April 19, 2017

      Another follow on from me, now that the chargeback is in place they've finally messaged me. There's been far too many things happening here without information being shared so I'm going to post everything they say to me here as I think it's really important that people can see what's going on.
      Hello John,

      This is Hazem Hawash, Producer of Shiness, i understand that your mesages have been ignored. Can you tell me when are you available to talk? We can do that on facebook if you like :).

      See you soon!

      And, my reply.
      I'm not sure that I have anything to add to what I've already told you many, many times. I have enforced a chargeback and it will take up to 48 hours to finalise due to my bank considering it to be a fraudulent transaction.

      There are only two things that would make me cease that chargeback.
      1) A PS4 download code for the game that you took money from me for.
      2) A full refund for the funds that you took from me.

      As I have all along, I'm giving you the choice. There is nothing else that I have to say to you. Do one of those things or don't, I'll get my money back either way.

    29. Haimon Alves on April 19, 2017

      Did not even receive a code
      I want a refund

      Dear Ynnis, could you please give us a schedule when the GOG keys will be available?
      Several people have already asked this question.

    38. Troy Meredith on April 18, 2017

      Congrats on getting the game released! Looking forward to playing this as soon as I can. :)

    39. Ynnis Interactive 8-time creator on April 18, 2017

      @Adam Gurney, Actually we have to buy the consoles keys, that's explain why these are limited. We didn't know past time that we had to pay for it, but we are doing everything that can be possible to make you happy.

      @Adam Slauenwhite,
      Can you please explain your problem in private message? We will try to help you as best as we can :).

    40. Adam Gurney on April 18, 2017

      I have to say, I am curious when the game is the same price on PSN as it is on Steam, we couldn't have a free choice of which option to go for. If it had been cheaper on PC, as is often the case, I would have understood why there was a limit on which pledge levels could get the game on console, but it isn't, so why the limitation?

    46. Stian on April 18, 2017

      Well, I got my Steam key about an hour after the game was released, I think it came out before the scheduled time so that might be the reason. I just wish we'd gotten it way in advance so it was ready for launch.

      But otherwise, really enjoying the game so far, the little I've played it. The combat is going to be a challenge for me but it sure is beautiful.

      For everyone's info I have notified the gaming press to see what Ynnis Interactive have to say to them on the matter.

    48. John Parry on April 18, 2017

      I thought I'd update people in here as people seem to have moved on from the other thread, this is a copy of what I posted there.


      A bit of an update for anybody still reading this.

      I believe that I’ve patient enough with them and I’m not willing to wait anymore for a reply that we all know isn’t going to happen. I’ve just come off the phone with my bank, Santander UK, who agree completely with everything that I’ve said open here and have accepted the case and will treating it as fraud.

      The only complication with it when I was doing it was the fact that it was a transaction from 2014 which means that my card number is different now to what it was then, they full access to the transaction but the man I was speaking to said they’d have two search through their records to find the specific card number that the fraudulent transaction was perpetrated on.

      Due to them considering it a case of fraud their fraud investigation team will contact me again in 48 working hours to get copies of paperwork from me that they can use as evidence in their case.

      As I’ve advised the project holders many times over the past few weeks, I will be getting my money back if they continue renege on our agreement and that’s exactly what’s happening now.

      On a positive note, due to the current exchange rate between the USA and UK, the £18.39 that they took from me is now worth £23.36 which sees me with a profit of over 27% which is far more than I’d have got from my bank. So, that’s a bonus and I’ll not be going anywhere near this game with my money.

      I’ve ben very clear about exactly what I was going to do when I contacted people in Ynnis Interactive, Enigami and Focus Home Interactive and they were made fully aware of what the consequences would be to them and unlike them, I’ve stuck to what I said and they will hopefully start to understand how badly they’ve treated people much this is going to cost them.

      Again, I’ll be emailing this to the companies involved to let them know that I’ve now done this.

      Watching 4 of my friend's play this game right now and they didn't even know this was a kickstarter game.

      While i sit here for a single console key and the other steam keys that are useless too me. This kickstarter has been nothing but a nightmare. Last time I ever join one. :/

      Got sent a pc code instead of PS4 like I previously asked. Very upset that only specific tiers get access to the console version. If I had known that, I would of backed those specific tiers. Wish you all the best in your future endeavours but I will not support you again due to how the people who helped kickstart your game were treated.
