LONDON, UK: – WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2021 – Chameleon Games, a new independent game development studio has launched its primate action-adventure game, Tamarin®, for Xbox One and Games for Windows. Set in beautiful Nordic scenery, Tamarin® stars the world's cutest monkey on a quest to stave off an insect invasion bent on industrializing his forest home which threatens his family’s very existence. Playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, or PC, Tamarin is available today on the Microsoft Store for $29.99 USD.

Players will explore an irresistible interconnected 3D world, brimming with agile primate platforming and bug-splattering shooter action. Journey through the Nordic wilderness on scenic routes through forests, fjords, and mountains while trying to stop the insect invasion. Collect mysterious electrical fireflies, rescue innocent birds, and discover the underground base of the dancing ants while battling to restore the tamarins’ natural habitat
