About this game

Developer: Tencent
Content Rating: Everyone


A free-to-play game created by six university graduates over five months. The Legend of Nishan Shaman is a traditional tale passed down by Northeastern Chinese minority tribes for thousands of years. The tale is about how a female shaman named Nishan saved the soul of a young boy from evil. Players will control Nishan and go on a magical adventure through different realms, defeating evil by beating on her shaman drum. It is a casual story-driven rhythm game, as well as a serious game that aims to pass on the culture of Chinese minority tribes. In the style of traditional Chinese paper-cutting art, with a mysterious and original shamanistic soundtrack and a compendium that contains abundant cultural information, Nishan Shaman will show you the charm of Northeastern Chinese minority culture.

Nishan Shaman is a beautiful experience that’ll leave you wanting more and anticipate future games/content from Next Studios. If you have an iOS or Android device you have no excuse to miss this impactful experience.

I appreciate that Tencent put out a game that isn’t trying to be the next huge multiplayer sensation, but Nishan Shaman is a little too small in its scope to feel particularly meaningful. There are solid ideas here, but they ultimately don’t get enough room to breathe, resulting in a rhythm game that is both disappointing and forgettable.

Nishan Shaman è una sorpresa: non tanto per il suo essere un titolo peculiare, visto che il panorama mobile in particolare ci ha abituato a produzioni indie in grado di uscire dalle catalogazioni standard del mercato, quanto per il fatto di essere emerso, con la sua unicità , da una mega-corporazione, cosa che rende ancora piÚ prezioso un gioco del genere. È corto e tutto sommato non troppo curato sul versante propriamente ludico, ma come esperienza narrativa e soprattutto audio-visiva - con le sue implicazioni sinestesiche tra tatto e ritmo - rappresenta un titolo che sarebbe meglio non lasciarsi sfuggire, essendo peraltro completamente gratuito.
