Shank invites players to let loose with multiple weapons and rack up the kills with an exciting and free flowing combo system. Rip through the ranks of a legion of gang members to compete against friends on Shank's online leaderboards. Featuring a captivating art style inspired by golden age comics and graphic novels, Shank's blend of classic intense 2D action with a mature and gripping storyline makes it one of the most anticipated downloadable titles this year.
Taking place in a stylized, modern-Western setting, Shank tells a classic betrayal story directed through a sophisticated cinematic lens, with addictive action gameplay found in classic 2D side-scrolling games.
Acclaimed writer Marianne Krawczyk, best known for her BAFTA award-winning work on the God of War franchise, will be writing the story for the 2D action brawler Shank, lending her expertise in crafting rich, well-developed characters for Shank's tale of revenge.
"I'm very excited to be a part of Shank," said Marianne Krawczyk. "I fell in love with the artwork, characters and world that Klei Entertainment created and together we are creating a story that will allow gamers to explore a world where values like integrity and loyalty take on their own twisted meanings."
"When Shank was first conceived, we envisioned a fully realized world with provocative characters living out a mature, cinematic story," said Jamie Cheng, CEO of Klei Entertainment. "Marianne has been able to flesh out our characters, and create a gritty, personal and unique story of full frontal revenge."
