Murder is a right lark, I’m sure we can all agree, but there’s little better murder than murder where no one sees their murder coming and their murder goes undetected. Stealth, I’m talking about. 2014 fantasy sneak ‘em up Styx: Master of Shadows was fairly typical for for developers Cyanide – interesting and ambitious but flawed enough to end up frustrating, as our Graham noted in his review. Still, the goblin’s sneaky adventure was promising enough that Cyanide are having another crack.
Today the French studio announced sequel Styx: Shards of Darkness [official site], slated to launch in 2016.
