Yacht Club Games are a group that loves the old-school styles of gaming. It was this love that brought Shovel Knight (and its spinoffs) to the world. And now, they’re prepping for PAX East, where they’ll be officially unveiling their next title, Cyber Shadow.
They’ll be the publisher on the title, while Mechanical Head Games did the bulk of the work making the title.
“It’s a huge honor to work with Aarne Hunziker on Cyber Shadow. We understand more than most what a massive undertaking it is to bring a game you’ve been dreaming about for years into the world. We’re here to help Aarne deliver his vision – taking care of the ‘boring stuff’ so that he can do what he does best!”
– Sean Velasco, Game Director, Yacht Club Games
Here’s a breakdown of the game:
In Cyber Shadow – the newest addition to the Yacht Club Games roster – the world has been taken over by synthetic lifeforms. A desperate plea for help sets Shadow on a journey to uncover what set the world on the path to perpetual ruin. Slash through techno hordes, leap past traps, and nimbly navigate the ruins of Mekacity. Only you can unlock the secrets to your clan’s ancient powers in Cyber Shadow – a quintessential take on the ninja action genre.
The full unveil will take place at PAX East this weekend, and you can expect a mix of Ninja Gaiden, Mario, Contra, and more from this title. So stay tuned!
