Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden – or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily’s eyes.

Will Shadwen risk the girl’s budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill – that is the question.

  • MOVE FREELY – Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage – use your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop down from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
  • STAY HIDDEN – Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards – use it to your benefit!
  • TIME IS AN ACCOMPLICE – Time stands still when you are not moving Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point mid-motion. Rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions!
  • USE PHYSICS – Use physics and a freely attachable rope to drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
  • CREATE TRAPS AND HAZARDS – Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, decoy toys and more.
  • TWO CHARACTERS – Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.

Trine Franchise Weekend Sale & Trine 3 Update

All Trine games are now on SALE for this weekend from Thursday 5th November until Sunday 8th November!

Those of you who own Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, or are considering getting it, may also be excited to hear that we released a new update for the game with a free new level: a mini-adventure called Quest for Cake.

The new level is a mini adventure featuring the three heroes and their (or mainly Pontius's) desire for some food - a cake, no less! As a response to fan feedback, the adventure is set in the style of the Book theme!

With the update, Trine 3 now also officially supports SteamOS and Linux. More about the update on our blog.

Check out the trailer for the Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power update below. :)
