This year we’ve decided to attend gamescom in Germany to announce a new game! Typically we’d be flying there like any other video game event, but deciding to get a booth changes things a bit… After weighing our options, we came up with a brilliant plan – why not drive there with our company van?! This is what we started out with: It needed some love, so here’s the progress after a bit of painting last weekend: Still needs some more tuning though, perhaps some bigger flames on the side? What would you like to see on our #HypeVan? Stay […]
While filming the Shadwen trailers, we came across a number of rather interesting events.

We’ll reward the best one with a Shadwen T-shirt!

Shadwen is an assassin on a quest to kill the new King of Rivendon. You play as the titular killer as she makes her way through the night-time streets of a peacefully sleeping town. You must decide if you want to trek through town killing the patrolling Guards, or are you avoiding them in order to make your way peacefully. You also encounter Lily, a bright young orphan, who must join you on your quest. The relationship between the two of you will be decided by your actions: will she see you kill? In this series, we’ve showcase different styles […]
In Shadwen, you play the titular assassin, and she is on a quest to kill the King. Sneaking your way to the castle, you need to choose if you intend to kill all the Guards in your way, or if you’ll deviously distract them so you can pass them without complications. During your journey you encounter Lily, a bright young orphan, and she’ll join your quest, blithely unaware of your true intentions until she witnesses your murderous ways, when your relationship with her must change. In the second part of this short series, we showcase different ways to play Shadwen. […]
In Shadwen, you play the titular assassin on a quest to kill King Gwydion. To get through Rivendon Town and Rivendon Castle to him, you need to choose if you intend to kill all the Guards in your way, or if you’ll deviously distract them to allow you to get by unnoticed.

Will she witness you murder the Guards, or will the two of you pass through the night-time shadows of Rivendon like […]

We’re stoked to announce that Shadwen will emerge from the Shadows in May 2016! The initial launch platforms are PC and PlayStation 4. Shadwen will launch at a spectacularly low launch discount price of $14.55 on PC, following a “demo event” campaign where gamers from all over the world were able to play a sneak-peek beta demo and lower the launch price by doing so. The starting price was $35 but over 20.000 downloads, 3.5 million points, and over 100.000 killed guards dropped the price to $14.55 (with a launch discount applied). The final launch price of the game will […]

We’re happy to confirm that Shadwen will launch with a level editor!
