Finnish game developer Frozenbyte have unveiled their upcoming stealth action adventure game Shadwen, a title that aims to bring the stealth genre back to its roots after years of gung-ho ridden action blasters and yearly revisions. Shadwen is a true stealth game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden – or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!
Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte had this to say,
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” class=”” width=””]”The stealth genre has been in a slump for years. Guns blazing and invincible heroes is not stealth. Yearly revisions like sports roster updates is a crap way of doing games, Shadwen will bring the genre back to its roots, with sneaking and hiding the main course of action. We will also explore the moral consequences of killing through our characters.”[/box]
Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with a little orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily’s eyes. Will she resort to violence and let Lily witness her crimes, or can she find another way and protect the child’s innocence? To kill or not to kill – that is the question.
