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. :-)

    droezelke @nostradamus: I'm not talking about the events, but how it all works together. I just read you can create a group by honking at recruits. This is not explained in the game eg. (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @droezelke: FH1. Just doing races against the rivals, airplanes/copters and discovering along was way more fun than going in for the P2P championships. (3 Hours ago)
