'Shank' (ALL) - New Screens

by Rainier on May 17, 2010 @ 2:15 a.m. PDT

Shank is an over-the-top action/adventure, built with all the things that the devs over at Klei Entertainment are passionate about: amazing control, great animation, immersive environment, and everything else that we feel like, and none of the stuff we don't.

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.
