Shadwen now available for Mac for just $14.44

Published On May 17, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

Frozenbyte—the developer behind the acclaimed Trine trilogy—has announced that their new stealth-action game, Shadwen, is now available for Mac at a crazy-low launch price of $14.44. The reduced price is the result of a successful sneakpeek demo earlier this year that saw 20,000 downloads and 100,000 killed guards…in the game, of course. To the best of our knowledge, no real world guards were harmed during the demo event.


Set in a gritty medieval world of kings and assassins, Shadwen’s only rule is to remain unseen 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?

Factoring into your decisions are the ability to:

  • 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 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.
  • Control time – 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 – Your freely attachable rope can drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
  • Create traps and hazzards – 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.
  • Control two characters – Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.

Mac users can download a digital copy of Shadwen via and Steam.
