We have been somewhat taken by Cyber Shadow when it launched earlier this week. Bringing us an 8-bit ninja motion platformer, the story targeted on Shadow, final survivor of an historical order of ninjas. Having awoken to a weird technological world, Shadow seeks to take down the menace which destroyed each his clan and the world.
Bringing a somewhat commonplace premise, we thought the story held extra depth than anticipated, however because it seems, the completed recreation’s content material barely scratched the floor.
Talking to Goomba Stomp in a latest podcast, Yacht Membership Video games’ advertising supervisor Celia Schilling revealed solely 25% of the lore was really used, confirming:
“What you guys get in Cyber Shadow at present is just 25% of the story that Aarne [Hunziker] had written for it. Aarne has a lot backstory for Cyber Shadow. I keep in mind we have been engaged on the character profiles for it and I used to be like, ‘Okay Aarne, inform me extra about [player character] Shadow, like what does he love to do for enjoyable?’ And he was like, ‘Shadow, clearly, he has a sensitivity to essence. However earlier than he went to the dojo the place he met Grasp, he went on a journey of solitude to ensure he wasn’t being corrupted.’”
We gave Cyber Shadow excessive reward in our latest overview, however our important grievance was that there simply wasn’t sufficient of it. Figuring out this a lot lore went unused, it is potential Aarne Hunziker may look to discover this additional in a while.
Whether or not that comes as a sequel or DLC, time will inform, however we might definitely like to see extra of Cyber Shadow that makes use of this untouched lore.
