Styx: Master of Shadows is an infiltration game with RPG elements from Cyanide Studio. GAF Team worked hard on this project – H-Pi handled music production and strings recording, Gery managed the integration and was Lead Sound Designer, and we finally recorded US voicing with the same cast as Of Orcs and Men, respecting the license. A making-of is in progress and the OST will be available in our bandcamp.

Styx: Master of Shadows

About the game:

Guide Styx through the winding Tower of Akenash, home to a Treeworld, source of the Amber – a powerful golden sap filled with magical properties – prowling through the shadows with aide of a host of special abilities refined throughout Styx’s 200 years of history. Within the many hallways and levels of the Tower of Akenash, Styx must avoid the humans who’ve the ability to easily overpower him. With Amber running through his veins, what Styx lacks in might he more than makes up for with stealth, as the golden elixir – often heavily guarded – raises his perception, sharpens his senses, and even offers the ability to turn him invisible for short periods of time. Styx’s lust for the Amber produced by the Treeworld is matched only by Governor Barimen’s charge to protect it; with little help from Styx’s mysterious shadowy allies, it is our Goblin friend alone who can uncover the secrets of the tower.
