Take a peek behind the developement of the new Stealth Strategy game in the Developer Insight Trailer.
In the trailer the Creative Director, Dominik Abé, is joined by our Head of Design, Moritz Wagner, to explain the thought process behind the development and the vision of Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew.
On top of that, the trailer reveals a new playable character of the cursed crew: Toya of Iga, a cursed ninja pirate and ship cook of the cursed crew, who is able to teleport and kill enemies over great distances.
Meet Toya, The Assassin Cook
Next to the definition of “cool” you would probably find an undead ninja pirate assassin cook in any lexicon of your choice.
Welcome Toya of Iga to the cursed pirate crew of the Red Marley! He is the cook of the ship and usually prepares tasty, soul infused meals for the crew.
But his amazing skills allow him to be a menace in combat, too. He can place as marker anywhere on the ground and use it to teleport back to that location at any given time immediately. This allows him to get out of dangerous situations really quickly but also for some advanced maneuvers and stylish kills: If an enemy stands on the marker when Toya is teleporting, the enemy will be attacked.
Moreover, Toya carries a whistle to lure enemies to his current location. When players use both his skills in combination, they can create lethal traps for enemies by luring them to the marker.
Check out his awesome design and abilities in our Developer Insight Trailer linked above.
