Styx is an infiltration game in the dark fantasy universe of Of Orcs and Men. You play Styx : a goblin assassin as stealth as cynical. Small, greenish and disreputable Styx isn't a simple goblin but the very first one of these unbearable green midgets. The thief is looking for his origins... and for a nice booty on the way if things go well.
Styx offers functionalities inherited from the classical infiltration titles like the various techniques of discreet assassination, a detection system taking advantage of the shadows, an advanced AI, a great freedom of action and a lot of interactions with the environment.
In addition to respecting and improving the standards of classical infiltration titles Styx brings a level design where the verticality is at the heart of the gameplay with a really agile character, a lot of RPG functionalities (inventory, Skills trees, etc.) a dark and mature story full of twists and finally the cloning ability!
Styx, the goblin assassin, is climbing his way up the Tower of Akenash. From the murky, oppressive depths of the tower to the opulent and magnificent summits where the elite guards and the citizens of the tower reside, Styx will have to work hard to reach his objective: The Tree, the source of the Amber, the promise of infinite riches he would like to possess. Master assassin and part-time thief, Styx will be able to remove any objects hampering his progress: but don't leave any clues behind that could betray your presence to the guards... like a lifeless body in a walkway!
