Twin Souls is a great looking 3rd person cel shaded stealthy assassin game with supernatural overtones, inspired by Tenchu, Metal Gear Solid, Dishonored and Mark of the Ninja. We covered the Prototype a while ago on ABG, but as they’ve just started a Kickstarter campaign, we figured it was time for an update.
You are Aragami, a spirit of vengeance summoned by Yamiko, a mysterious girl imprisoned in a guarded fortress. As you come back to life, your souls are bound together, sealing your destinies. To achieve your goal you must engage in a dark journey through land and memories to destroy her prison seals. As Aragami, you have the power of ‘Shadow Control’. The darkness is your ally and the source of your strength. You have a diverse array of Shadow Powers at your disposal. As you advance you will need to sneak past guards, teleport between shadows, create your own areas of darkness and strategically assassinate your targets.
The prototype was made some time ago, and utilises a different game engine than the current Twin Souls game, but is features the same stealth and shadow based gameplay and beautiful cel shaded graphics. Gameplay focuses on stealthy, ninja-style combat, harkening back to the Tenchu games, where a full on assault is often suicide. It’s a satisfyingly authentic ninja assassin game where where planning, precision and timing are paramount, this is NOT Assassins Creed.
