Steamdolls - Order of Chaos was announced recently from developer The Shady Gentlemen, giving a metroidvania a steampunk style with some brutal action. Due to launch sometime soon on Kickstarter with Linux support (confirmed), it looks like fun.

Blast your way to your objective or stick to the shadows and perform violent assassinations on unsuspecting guards as you struggle with the haunting apparitions of a mesmerizing witch trying to reveal the truth about a conspiracy that could shake the very foundation of the world.

Inspired by the likes of Hollow Knight, Dead Cells and Castlevania it's full of exploration, action and plenty of blood that will be spilled. Have a look at their announcement trailer:

"When fossil fuels were depleted, it was time for a change. But it never came. The discovery of a new superconductive material made sure the cycle never broke."

In Steamdolls, you assume the role of a cunning thief and anarchist known as "The Whisper" and make your way through heavily secured environments. It seems society as a whole is stagnating, in an industrial era haunted by the ghost of what came before. According to the story scientists were searching for a way to push through and "regain the glory of Old", until they found something "that should have been left alone".

Feature Highlight:

  • 2D brutal fast paced metroidvania in a steampunk universe.
  • Gruesome stealth kills.
  • A vast city to explore.
  • David Hayter (Solid Snake) is the voice of The Whisper.
  • Hand-drawn Cutscenes for the narrative parts.

You can follow it on the Kickstarter page here for when their campaign launches.

Good inspirations. Graphic style looks good. Let's hope they can create a solid game out of it.
