The original Styx was a decent stealth game (especially in a year with Thief 4 in it), let down by a decision to recycle levels from the halfway point. Next week (14 March), sees the release of Styx: Shards of Darkness; a sequel which aims to stay largely true to the first title, but polish the series’ rough edges.
In this video, I tackle the first (well, first proper) level in the game. Our green, snarky hero has to get himself on to an Ambassador’s airship in order to steal a scepter. Before he can even think about snagging the item, however, Styx needs to figure out how to get across town without being given an impromptu amputation by the roaming guards.
See how I get on, below.
