After months in development, the guys over at Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive (who have previously collaborated on Of Orcs and Men) are prod to showcase the first screeenshots of their upcoming game; Styx: Master of Shadows. Players will take on the role of the world’s first goblin – Styx and take advantage of his centuries of training in the arts of stealth, theft, and murder. in a combination stealth infiltration/RPG game.
Like all Goblins, Styx has dreams of striking it rich, and the best way to do that is to infiltrate the Tower of Akenash where humans and elves hide and protect the Tree, the source of the Amber, are the best chance Styx has of quickly amassing a small fortune and, perhaps, discover more about his true origins along the way.
The game makes clever use of vertical level design as well as integrating core RPG mechanics (like gaining experience and levelling up) with a unique and interesting stealth combat mechanic to create a unique gameplay experience. We have a couple screenshots from the game, so be sure to check them out below and remember to stay tuned to Capsule Computers for all the Styx news as it becomes available.
