Description

Styx is a two centuries old goblin, a skillful assassin and an accomplished thief. Deep inside the forsaken Tower of Akenash where Humans and Elves protect a precious source of power known as the Amber, Styx will do everything he can to steal the heart of the WorldTree, the source of Amber. The goblin might be weaker than his enemy, but his skills and amber powers are powerful assets. Players need to help him infiltrate the bowels of the Atrium and discover the fate of the first born goblin.

Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth game with a few RPG elements. Over time, Styx's abilities allow him to clone himself for trapping an enemy or scouting, turn invisible, see with the power of Amber, move quieter, kill faster and in different manners, upgrade the inventory capacity and so on. At all times however he must stay low and avoid direct confrontations.

Trivia

References

The game is referenced in the 2016 movie Elle by Paul Verhoeven. The protagonist, Michèle Leblanc, heads a fictional French game development studio. It is referenced multiple times by name and through extracts that her company is behind the game Styx: Master of Shadows, which is a real game by a French studio.

Styx

Styx is not an entirely new character. He was previously introduced in the game Of Orcs and Men (2012) co-developed by the same studio. You can view him in the game here. Styx: Master of Shadows is set in the same universe of Of Orcs and Men and is set before the events of that game.
