In less than two weeks, on May 17th, Finnish developers Frozenbyte release their epic stealth adventure Shadwen. The game will be available on PC, Linux, OS X, and PS4 and will have an introductory price of €14.55 / $14.55 for PC versions (regular price will be €16.99 / $16.99 across all platforms).
Shadwen follows the story of an assassin who has been hired to kill the King. Along the way, she meets an orphaned girl called Lily who follows her as she tries to succeed in her mission. Life as an assassin isn’t glamorous, and the assassin must decide whether to show Lily her dark side or seek to keep it clean and find another way of getting the job done.
The aim of the game is not to be seen or heard. Time does not pass when the assassin is standing still, which means that players have time to decide what to do. There is also a rewind function which allows you to retrace your steps and hone in your assassination techniques.
Can’t wait until May 17th? Then check out the trailer for Shadwen below and tell us what you think.
