Chameleon Games' upcoming action-adventure game Tamarin was all set to release before the end of 2019. Regrettably, it seems that the developers are going to need a bit more time to get it done and have pushed the release date back.

What's Tamarin all about? Well, it may be easiest to get a feel for the game by watching the Adventure Trailer:

In the world of Tamarin, evil insects have caused all sorts of pollution and are generally messing up the land. You just wanted to chill at home, but they've decided to start something by burning down your house and kidnapping your family. It will be up to you to explore the world, rescue your family, and splatter some troublesome bugs.

Oh, and you can also buy a machine gun.

The entire world is said to be an "interconnected" 3D space that players can run through, much like other classic games in the genre. Use your monkey agility to leap large distances or straight up into the air to slap down a bug that's being a pain in the butt. Make the right moves and you can save the land!

Tamarin Delayed Until January 2020

While Tamarin certainly looks like a pretty cool game, the developers feel like that need a little more time to get it done.

"We wanted to let you know the release date of Tamarin this week," developer Chameleon Games said in a tweet. "Very sorry for the delay, but we've needed just a little bit of extra time in order to give you the best game we can. Tamarin is now expected to be out in January!"

You'll be able to get your hands on Tamarin sometime in January 2020. In the meantime, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.
