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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (24 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (39 minutes ago)
