Get ready for sardonic stealth action with Styx: Shards of Darkness

Do you like stealth action? Do you enjoy games that take a bit of time to poke fun at the player, game developers and other beloved franchises? Styx is mean, green, foul-mouthed and too smart for his own good and he loves stealing things. He also likes killing things, especially people who look down on him. As the only goblin that can talk, most people think of goblins as nothing more than large vermin so there are a lot of people who look down on the diminutive anti-hero.

Styx: Shards of Darkness launches tomorrow and between stealing stuff, killing people and spitting up clones to control (yeah, it is gross and weird), Styx is quite the character. In fact he almost stole the show in Of Orcs and Men, so it is no small surprise that the filthy rakash now has his own line of games.

He also enjoys breaking the fourth wall, which is great if you play a lot of games and enjoy hunting for Easter eggs.
