The Siege and the Sandfox announcement trailer

From the trailer we understand that the new video game will feature parkour elements in un mondo platform in 2D, with the presence of stealth mechanics. Players will be able to explore a majestic royal, which hides ancient prisons in a kingdom under siege, wearing the cloak of the legendary Sandfox.

Stealth will therefore be essential to escape enemies, to catch them by surprise or simply slipping out of their sight. It will be possible run, jump, slide, swing with the pole and more, as you venture into a game world dotted with items and equipment to unlock, accessing apparently inaccessible places.

The gameplay is in fact characterized by expansive exploration, and not necessarily linear with respect to the game world. The use of Unreal Engine 4blends well with one artistic component with a decidedly retro taste. A 16-bit blend embellished with characters that characterize the game world and the gameplay-based music systemwhich creates tension and underlines the danger.

The Siege and the Sandfox will be released in 2023, but it is already possible to add it to Wishlist on Steam, Epic Store, GOG and Humble.
