Console Obsession says: "Shadwen was developed by Frozenbyte, the team best known for the very colourful and magical Trine series. Having moved away from that series for now, Shadwen is quite a contrast in both its look and tone, with it being darker and less fairytale-like than the series that helped put the developer on the map. Shadwen is the titular sneaky assassin that you take control of in the medieval inspired world that the game takes place in. But before you get to her main task, which is to kill the king, you take control of a young girl called Lily. This section doesn’t only set up the story but it also serves as a tutorial as well. It’s not long before Shadwen and Lily meet up, and then the game becomes a gigantic escort mission. Oh joy."
