Shiftlings Passes Gas on PC, PS4, Xbox One this Spring

Just in time to do a little spring cleaning, recently resurrected Sierra Games will help publish Norwegian indie studio Rock Pocket Games’ cute puzzle platformer Shiftlings for PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime during the 2015 spring season.

Shiftlings puts a fun and quirky twist on the puzzle platforming genre by starring a pair of not so bright space custodians who travel the galaxy as part of an intergalactic reality show and solve various challenges of a janitorial nature. The catch here is that the two are tethered together by a hose that transfers air–or passes gas–between their space suits, so at any given time one janitor’s suit is puffed up like a balloon while the other janitor gets to run and jump in the comfort of a normal-sized suit.

Built for both solo play as well as couch and online co-op, this gas passing mechanic will provide fun new ways to solve puzzles and traverse obstacles across more than 50 stages. Smells, errrm… I mean sounds like a blast!
