Iris and the Giant is the third of five games agreed to be ported and published by Klabater on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, from the portfolio of the french studio Goblinz Publishing. Klabater has ported and published the critically acclaimed Legend of Keepers and As Far As The Eye. The upcoming premieres will also include Defend the Rook, announced to be released on March 16th, and Terraformers later this year.
“In Klabater, we love narrative games; one can understand that by reviewing our catalog. Promoting the story of Iris, created by talented Louis Rigaud, and giving this title another shot out after its past releases on PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile, was a pure pleasure to our team. We saw that the game has also caught the attention of media and influencers who shared our sentiment towards the game design and the story.” – said Justyna Urbanska, marketing and PR manager at Klabater.

What Iris and the Giant lacks with its minimalistic style, it more than makes up with addictive card-play. The emotional narrative is subtle yet works greatly due to the little nuances from Iris’ life incorporated into the gameplay. And the gameplay is where it thrives.
