Shadwen Joins The Geforce Now Library

Shadwen is a new stealth-action game in which your decisions will have immediate in-game consequences and influence the outcome of the game. It’s now ready for you in the GeForce NOW store! Now through May 24, Shadwen is available for the special introductory price of $14.44, which is 15% of the standard retail price of $16.99. What you’re getting for this price is instant, and unlimited, streaming rights on your NVIDIA SHIELD TV, along with a digital download code for Steam you can use to install a local copy of the game. Note: this game carries an M rating by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) for “Mature”, and is recommended for players over 18 years of age.

Plot

Developer Frozenbyte brought us the Trine series. And in Shadwen you can see elements that rubbed off. You are Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king. On your way to do your dirty work, you run into an orphan girl, Lily, and elect to let her follow you on your journey. This scenario immediately brings consequences to your actions: Do you simply kill that guard, and risk Lily’s trust and innocence, or do you try to find another way to your goal and keep your real purpose masked? Lily, effectively, acts as your “conscience” and, hopefully, will encourage you to find non-lethal solutions to the challenges this stealth/action game presents.

As An Assassin Be Silent And Stay Unseen.

For starters, time only progresses when you’re moving, which gives you all the time you need to plan your moves ‒ you can even pause in mid-air to mull things over. Even better, should you make a mistake ‒ and you will ‒ you can rewind the clock and try again. This is also useful if you just want to see if you can pull off a different move, or solve an encounter in a different way.

Your choices to take the lethal or stealth approach will change the progression, and eventual outcome of the story, along with determining your relationship with Lily.

 

Conclusion

Shadwen is a well put together game and if you’ve got some money to spend i’d definitely recommend picking it up on GeForce Now and if you haven’t yet start your three-month trial and try the included with membership games to see how powerful NVIDIA’s cloud-gaming service truly is.
