Tonight theres gonna be considered a jailbreak
Its nice to visit a cool off-the-radar indie game resurface with a release window after years of wondering. That is my first-time seeing The Siege and the Sandfox, but as a stealth-based metroidvania with detailed pixel art, it quickly left an excellent impression.
The developers at Cardboard Sword have teamed up with publisher Koch Media to launch their debut game. Plus a new trailer this week (which helps reintroduce the stealthvania concept), theyve set their sights on a 2023 release on PC.
If youre interested in the games name, heres the offer: a desert kingdom is under siege, and youll sneak around as a legendary figure, the Sandfox, to save lots of the kingdom.
The Sandfox referred to as the Kashai is famed over the land because the legendary type of faithful protectors and servants to the crown. The existing holder of the mantle has been left for dead at the bottom of Traitors Fall a deep pit resulting in the depths of the underground prisons. Betrayed by the Queen to be able to hide her regicide, you need to now undertake the role of the Sandfox and commence your journey back around the palace.
Metroidvania meets parkour
With metroidvania roots, expanding your traversal options will undoubtedly be area of the progression and itll drop to getting new items, equipment, and skills, based on the team.
The Siege and the Sandfox is split into distinct areas the prison, palace, mausoleum, and caves, to mention several but its all one giant continuous world.
Because the screenshots show, theres plenty of environmental detail to take a godsend when youre attempting to weigh your stealth options and hopefully leave no trace.
This project is really a passionate mix of stealth and 16-bit era games, brought in to the modern world with beautiful visual effects and techniques, in accordance with Cardboard Sword CEO Olly Bennett. We wished to make something new yet nostalgic.
