Shoo, Fly!: The Hand-Drawn Trailer for ‘Shu’ is Gorgeous

by Joseph Leray

Nestled somewhere in the Scottish Lowlands, presumably near Dundee, is an office for Secret Lunch, an indie studio formed by former University of Abertay students. Secret Lunch’s first project is called “Shu,” a gorgeous platformer about running, jumping, and gliding your way up a mountain, chased by cataclysmic tornadoes and flooding rivers.

The eponymous Shu is a bird-beaked little traveller hoping to escape some sort of malevolent storm. He can escape it by reaching the top of the mountain (shown in the trailer below), but landslides, lightning strikes, and the destroyed remains of a town called the Nest are getting the way.
