So I guess we?re making up genres again?while it bothers me that this means we might have to add categories at our year end awards, the team at Cardboard Sword might redeem themselves with the first trailer for The Siege and the Sandfox. Looking like a game that could?ve been on the SNES, but built in Unreal Engine 4, the game promises an old school aesthetic with a large map. Take control of the Sandfox as they explore a desert world full of danger and intrigue.
Collect equipment which will allow you to evade your enemies or traverse a previously inaccessible area. It will be interesting to see if the stealth mechanics hold up in a metroidvania style title where backtracking is more or less a prerequisite for gameplay. I guess we?ll find out when The Siege and the Sandfox comes out on PC in 2023.
