Shadwen GETS 14 LEVELS IN HUGE FREE CONTENT UPDATE: ESCAPE FROM THE CASTLEFinnish game developer Frozenbyte has released a free content update to their stealth game Shadwen in celebration of Frozenbyte's 15 year anniversary in the games industry.

The update, called Escape from the Castle, adds 14 re-worked levels completely for free on all PC, OS X and Linux platforms. The levels are reverse and remade versions of the ones in the orignal campaign - the objective now is to escape from the King's Castle!

The difficulty curve in the new content has been increased and players are encouraged to search for hidden treasure maps scattered around the levels!
The update also includes numerous bug fixes and some tweaks to the game's AI.

A showreel of Frozenbyte's 15 year journey in the games industry is now available on YouTube:

In light of the anniversary, all of Frozenbyte's games are also now part of a huge ongoing sale on Steam, GOG , Humble Store and Mac App Store, with Shadwen available for -50% and other titles up to -85% off!

Shadwen is now also available on the Mac App Store, and the Escape from the Castle content is included.

About Shadwen
Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden - or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily's eyes.

Will Shadwen risk the girl's budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill - that is the question.

The Launch Trailer at showcases the game and its physics-based world and the emotional story.


MOVE FREELY - Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage - use your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
STAY HIDDEN - Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards - use it to your benefit!
TIME IS AN ACCOMPLICE - Time stands still when you are not moving Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point mid-motion. Rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions!
USE PHYSICS - Use physics and a freely attachable rope to drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
CREATE TRAPS AND HAZARDS - Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, decoy toys and more.
TWO CHARACTERS - Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.

Frozenbyte is an independent game developer founded in 2001 and is based in Helsinki, Finland. Please visit the official website at for more information.
