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. :-)

    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (10 Hours ago)
