Pirate games seem to have stuck to action-adventure adventures, while some others experiment with strategy. Now comes Mimimi Games, a development studio established in the industry, to present Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crewa game of tactical action and strategy with pirates, walking curses Y zombies carrying anchors. It easily enters the top of the most anticipated this year.
But who are Mimimi Games? His time in the video game industry has been short, but remarkable to say the least. They started in 2011, but it wasn’t until 2016 that they stood out with Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, to later take over from Spellbound Entertainment for Desperados 3.
In this case, Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew follows the same approach as those games with stealth as a playable base. However, here we leave post-apocalyptic fantasy and Japanese “realism” for the caribbean fantasy with a ghost ship with living souls as comrades.
The idea is to navigate a dark and cursed version of the Caribbean while finding different supernatural powers Y We face the Inquisition. Do you need more to feel attracted? Because the level is high. Well yes, there is. With this new installment, the Germans have allowed themselves certain improvements in how to approach the combats with the presence of the Red Marley, the ship of the protagonists.
With him, the “quicksave” Y “quickload“, or the possibility that Desperados 3 and Shadow Tactics gave us to return to a point in the past. This ghost ship gives us the possibility to control time, but it is not something that we can only use in combat, but rather will have its reflection in historyalthough they keep the secret for later.
Along with this, the game map will no longer be condensed and focused on the mission to be carried out, but we are facing a open world with the aforementioned ship as the central location. Ours will be the decision of which islands to visit, what mission to do and how to approach them.
A game that will seek to modify what the studio has done so far, but working on its benefits within tactical action games. Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is scheduled for release sometime this 2023 with no confirmed release window.
