Press Release

Hamburg, Germany (November 9, 2018) - The time has come! After a successful open beta phase, developer Playa Games is now releasing a completely revamped version of their wacky online RPG. From now on all players can enjoy the completely redesigned version Shakes & Fidget Remastered.


Fantasy fans can look forward to many new innovations: with Shakes & Fidget Remastered, Playa Games replaces the outdated Flash base with a combination of Unity Engine and WebGL. Thousands of newly drawn graphics now shine in new splendour, even on Full HD and 4K monitors. In addition, the layout of the game has been significantly optimized and the menu navigation has been streamlined.


Shakes & Fidget players have the decision to play the new version or the original familiar look. The options menu offers an easy switch between the previous version (default) and Shakes & Fidget Remastered.


Shakes & Fidget Remastered will be released on Browser on November 9th and on Steam in November. The old original version of the game will still be accessible until further notice. New apps for iOS and Android are planned for the 1st quarter of 2019.


To celebrate this special day, the 28th International Game World will open its doors today at 4 p.m. CET at As if that weren't enough, all players can look forward to an EPIC event throughout the weekend.
