Light on Path of Shadows

Light on Path of Shadows

You've certainly already heard about it but we didn't talk about Path of Shadows here. What started as a student project could lead into a pretty good new franchise for stealth fans. The devs from Lince Works cite Tenchu, Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored as inspirations, enough to get you interested at least. In this third-person stealth title, you play a reborn warrior who has to save a mysterious deity. The Shadow Control power allows you to create your own darkness areas or teleport between shadows, therefore you can bring death at every corner or move like a ghost. If it's not done yet, download the original protoype build while the studio is porting the game engine to Unity3D and will launch a Kickstarter campaign soon.

Played the build of it last year, despite the jank, saw a lot of promise. I just wish it had Tenchu style death from above takedowns from rooftops. Moving from shadow to shadow and creating shadow zones was a lot of fun, especially when you got spotted.

These lights on his back are not very stealthy. :-)

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yes, I love Fear Effect very much. But if they're going to make it differently, I would prefer a sequel rather than a remake. Though remakes are easier, faster and cheaper to develop. (14 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i would prefer the cel shading too, but i'm not going to write off the entire game just because it doesn't have it. it's a great series and the fact it's back is awesome. (24 minutes ago)

    Sdarts Fear Effect (PS1) - All Cutscenes: [url] For comparison. (48 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts This falls more in line with what Grift and others mentioned they hated in most mods - completely altering the artstyle. (51 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Plus, that walking animation looks janky as hell. If they were going to remake it, they should do Cel-Shading similar to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and CyberConnect2's Naruto games. (52 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That Fear Effect "remake" actually looks like shit. The worse is the artsyle, the original and the sequel were never about realism, they had a very impactful artstyle that this has none of. (53 minutes ago)
