Shiness is set in the world of Mahera, a planet that was torn apart in an explosion and now exists as several islands, each with its own culture and civilisation. Each section has a basic ecosystem too, and you can hunt the local wildlife. Catching creatures by sneaking up on them will net you rarer, or at least more valuable, items than if you simply lurch at them full tilt. Enigami has also created a language, Maherian, for the world’s occupants, though an Englishdubbed version is available for anyone averse to reading subtitles. But some words and phrases will stay in Maherian, since the team is too bashful to translate some of its more full-on insults, many of which are used in a Monkey Island- style boss encounter.
