Shadwen looks awesome, and I'm going to be honest I hadn't heard of it until it was sent in. 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! Looks like it's coming to Linux too.

According to the official website, something will be revealed in six days.

About the game
Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden - or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an 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 Shadwen risk the girl's budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill - that is the question.

Interesting. I like stealth games. I keep hoping Styx will make its way to the penguin someday. At least it looks like this game hopefully will.

I hope that the performance won't be as abysmal as in Trine 3 But this looks very promising!

Sweet. And with a female protagonist too! That's a winner in itself.

I am glad they are trying new things again. Trine 3 was somewhat indicative of what happens when you spend too much time retreading old ground.

Hmh, they’ve obviously been inspired greatly by the Thief games. ;-) Looks good nonetheless. I’ll keep an eye out on this.

A Linux version would be an insta-buy for me.

A decent Thief clone for Linux, by the same people who gave us the Trine games? I'm buying it asap.
