Good news stealth fans, as Frozenbyte are back and Shadwen will release on 17th of May complete with Linux support.
While none of the stores currently have Linux listed as a platform, I have been told by Frozenbyte they just haven't updated the stores yet to say it.
From the press release:
QuoteHelsinki, Finland - 5th of May, 2016
Finnish game developer Frozenbyte is happy to confirm 17th of May as the release date for its upcoming stealth-action game Shadwen (official website at www.shadwen.com). The initial launch platforms include PC, PS4™, OS X® and Linux.
The launch price of the game will vary slightly based on platforms and stores and their pricing policies. On PC it will be $14.55 / 14.55 € or less, and the regular price once the launch discount is over will be $16.99 / 16.99 € across all platforms and stores.
I liked what I saw from the demo, but I do hope it's going through a lot of polish since then as it was quite buggy for me.
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.
It will be on Steam, GOG & Humble Store.
