This is crazy to say but holy cow we have been Greenlit; better yet in only 10 Days! Thank you all so much for the support. We, without a doubt, could not have done it without you!
In case you missed it be sure to check out our interview with Gaming PC Forum. We addressed a number of questions you may have had about the game including its direction as well as what the gameplay will be like.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
GPCF: What’s the aim of Keiru, what are you hoping for when people experience playing the game?
PFS: We want them to truly feel like a Ninja. I just find there aren't many games that capture that in its true form. On the topic of ninjas, games tend to do a poor job of putting players in their shoes. They tend to make ninjas come across as warriors who run headlong into battle. It is that feeling of being a cut-throat killer without making a noise. Killing your opponents without them knowing you were there is the ultimate goal we want to set the players towards. The closest example to what we are going for I would say is Dishonoured or Mark of the Ninja.
GPCF: Can you talk a bit more about how the stealth gameplay works?
PFS: With the characters being either completely black or completely white, it really requires the players to have some situational awareness. I think the correct way to describe the stealth gameplay would be ‘perspective based combat’. You may think you’re hidden in that dark corner, but from a different perspective you will stand out like a sore thumb. I think Kieru does tear down the stealth genre to its essence – hiding in plain sight is what we are going for.
