To celebrate our 15th anniversary we are having our games on sale and added an update to Shadwen!
The update, called Escape from the Castle, adds 14 re-worked levels to Shadwen for free to all platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac. You can read more from our blog or go to Shadwen's Steam page from here.
Don't forget to take advance of the bundle prices for example with Frozenbyte Collection. Its price adjusts if you already own some of the games!
We also made a video to show our progress from our first game, Shadowgrounds to Shadwen. You can find it below.
You can try out a sneak peek demo of Shadwen, our upcoming stealth-action game, for a limited time. Each playthrough helps drive down Shadwen's eventual launch price. So go ahead, download the demo and start playing! :)

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.

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.
