DescriptionStyx 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.
