Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered leaps out of the shadows

I hardly ever revisit singleplayer games, so the fact that I've snuck all the way through Mark Of The Ninja two and a half times should tell you something. One and a half of those times actually involved just as much stabbing and shuriken tossing as sneaking, but shh. I say this because Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered has slunk out of the shadows, boasting…

Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered will be a cheap or free upgrade for original owners

Klei Entertainment have announced that Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered, the revamped rerelease of their rad stealth-o-murder-a-platformer from 2012, will launch on October 9th. It'll boast high-resolution art and improved sound but still be the same fine game at heart, and accordingly won't be expensive for folks who got Mark Of The Ninja on Steam the first time around. Klei have said that those who…

Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered sneaking onto PC too

Swell side-scrolling stealth game Mark Of The Ninja is being snazzed up for the release of a 'Remastered' edition. The game is largely hidden in the shadows for now, but developers Klei Entertainment say it "will feature fully redone 4K visuals for both gameplay and cutscenes along with enhanced audio and new particle effects". Having announced Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered for Nintendo Switch last…

All Klei Games Free To Play On Steam This Weekend

If you haven't been paying attention to Klei Entertainment's creations for the past few years, you're missing out on some of the best games in the world. This year's Invisible, Inc. [official site], recently expanded in fine style, might be the best turn-based game I've discovered since I joined the Chess Club all those years ago, and Mark of the Ninja is a completely different…

Feature: Tasing grace

Invisible, Inc. Early Acccess Impressions:

Invisible Inc is a turn-based, grid-based, cyberpunkish stealth strategy game from Klei, creators of Don't Starve and Mark of the Ninja. It's about secret agents breaking into sinister corporations to steal cash and data. It's about risking everything and losing everything, but then trying it all again because you're damn sure you can do better. It's out now on Steam Early Access, and I've spent…

Game Dev Super Group Finally Announces Game

Campo Santo is a new studio made up of top tier talent from - DEEP BREATH - Double Fine, Klei, Telltale, and 2K Marin. OK, that didn't require much air to say out loud at all and I can type without breathing for probably, like, hours, but you get the idea. With the powers of Mark of the Ninja lead Nels Anderson, Walking Dead: Season One…

Interference Combines Mark Of The Ninja, Cyberpunk

Many games let you hack things. Too many, I might argue, especially when the result is some half-baked mainframe-smoking minigame. Interference, however, is taking a far more interesting approach, allowing you to hack reality in order to stealthily maneuver around dead-eyed killbots in a cyberpunk noir sidescrolling world. Basically, think Mark of the Ninja, but levels are both playgrounds for the fleet-footed and Rubik's Cubes for…

Indies On SteamOS, Pt 2: Linux, The Controller

Valve? Making its own OS for living rooms? Madness. Pure, coldly calculated and entirely premeditated madness. But SteamOS' success is far from guaranteed, and it's got some serious hurdles to overcome before it can establish a New World Order. Last time around, I gathered developers of games like Project Eternity, Gone Home, Mark of the Ninja, The Banner Saga, and Race The Sun to discuss…

Indies On SteamOS, Pt 1: ‘Openness,’ Potential Pitfalls

You probably haven't heard, but Valve's officially going forward with its plan to launch its own Steam-centric OS, living room hardware, and a crazy, touch-pad-based controller to back it all up. I know, right? It's weird that no one has been talking about it incessantly. But while Valve preaches openness and hackability, it's downplayed an ugly reality of the situation: smaller developers still face a multitude…

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Is Go(od)

It's not Android games, nor soundtracks, nor books about kettles. The new Humble Bundle is the original, the Humble Indie Bundle 9. And for a ninth time in a row, it's a corker. With names like Mark Of The Ninja, FTL: Faster Than Light, and FEZ, you can see the dollar signs spinning already.

Klei Xcommunicates Word Of Incognita’s Paid Alpha

Klei only removed the cloak of shadows (but thankfully not the trench coat; that would be weird) from espionage XCOM-ish strategy Incognita a couple months ago, but you can already play it. As in, right this very second. Following in the footsteps of endlessly bizarre survivalist megahit Don't Starve, a paid alpha was in the cards from the get-go, but it's still a pleasant surprise…

Mark Of The Ninja DLC Sneaking Out

I've been saving Mark Of The Ninja for the winter months. Dark nights, curtains drawn, the room lit by a candle light that's been strategically placed in a breeze to create rippled shadows. I might even move to Japan to enhance the experience. I've put it off this long, what's a few more months for an unnecessary and stressful intercontinental move? And to everyone about…

Marked Improvement: Mark Of The Ninja’s Special Edition

Guysguysguysguysguysguysguys! HOLD THE PHONE. Are you holding it? Physically? Cradling it, perhaps, like a precious infant or a 20-strong stack of the world's most delicious pies? OK, good. Here goes: Mark of the Ninja's adding a mode with non-lethal takedowns. Their absence, if you'll remember, was one of my only real grievances with what's otherwise one of the best stealth games in years. This is…

Feature: Casting A Deadly Shadow

Mark Of The Ninja review

It's a semi-well-known fact that real ninjas did their best work in the shadows and - unless their express objective was "be hacked into ninjiblets by a vastly superior opponent" - rarely emerged into open combat. Clearly, however, someone forgot to tell videogames about this, resulting in a new breed of ninja that's basically just a regular ol' mass murderer in silly feet pajamas. To…

Sneaky Stabby: Mark Of The Ninja Officially Steam-Bound

Remember that moment in Batman: Arkham [Batplace] when you figured out you could perch atop a gargoyle and just mess with people? Confuse them, terrify them, boil them, mash them, stick them in a stew, etc? Well, Mark of the Ninja's a lot like that, except with more weapons of mass distraction and in 2D. Also, there are swords. It is, in other words, among…

Is Mark Of The Ninja Sneaking Onto Steam?

If you remember Shank, you might also remember that he was less stealthy than Andre the Giant driving a monster truck across a minefield. Mark of the Ninja shares a developer and has a similar graphical style, but it is all about stealth, at least when it's not about beetles swarming over and consuming people. That can probably be quite noisy. Already out on XBLA,…
