Indie developer Klei Entertainment
has upped the ante on future game releases by revealing its next game, Mark of the Ninja
, with a text adventure. Only ninjas that successfully complete the text adventure will reap the award of the game's debut trailer. From the small glimpse of footage, the 2D perspective and visual style are nearly identical to the Shank
series. However, it seems that the gameplay in Mark of the Ninja will not tolerate the Rambo approach to completing levels. Gamers will truly have to learn the Mark of the Ninja to be successful. See what I did there? Sneak over to the official website
to test your stealth skills.
Mark of the Ninja
will be available this summer for Xbox Live Arcade.
