Shadwen – a True Stealth Game, Coming in 2016!

Return of True Stealth Games; Sneaking Not Optional

We're excited to announce our next game: a stealth action adventure game Shadwen.

Our aim is to go back to the roots of the stealth genre 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!

Check out the announcement trailer below:

If the player above doesn't work click here to watch the trailer from YouTube.

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with a little orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on the dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily's eyes.

Will Shadwen 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.



  • Stay hidden – avoid detection and guards, who will ruthlessly kill you upon capture.
  • Time is an accomplice – time stands still when you are not controlling Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point: mid-motion, during jumps, right before a guard sees you.
  • Carefully rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions to gain an upper hand on the guards. Make precision movements to nail each move and try different strategies for the ultimate solution.
  • Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards – use it to your benefit.
  • Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage – user your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
  • Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, smoke bombs and more.
  • Lethal and non-lethal solutions – choose your play style but remember: actions have consequences.
  • Become a true god of stealth and protect Lily's innocence – complete the game with no bodies left behind.
