Curve Studios’ brilliant action sneak-‘em-up Stealth Bastard is now available on Steam stores worldwide. A fully developed version of the studio’s acclaimed free prototype which has been downloaded more than 135,000 times – launches with a 10 percent discount for the first seven days.
Players control an agent tasked with escaping the facility; a top security building filled with lethal puzzles, robots and traps. Throughout the game’s 80 levels, players must run, jump, sneak, slide and scamper their way through each room, hacking terminals, breaking locks, solving puzzles and, well, staying alive. To celebrate the release, Curve Studios has unveiled a new trailer showcasing some of the game’s ‘Deluxe’ skills – which include all-new equipment, special sound-based puzzles and even bosses, among many other things.
Stealth Bastard Deluxe is available today on stores Steam worldwide, priced £6.29 / $8.99 / €8.09 for the first week. The original soundtrack is also available (and discounted for the first week).
About Stealth Bastard Deluxe
Stealth games are awesome. Hiding from The Man, skulking in shadows, the thrill of unseen infiltration. But why do they have to be so… slow?
That was the question that spawned Stealth Bastard, the fast-paced, nail-biting antidote to tippy-toed sneaking simulators that the world had so desperately been craving. Now, building on the ideas sketched out in this unholy marriage of Metal Gear Solid and Super Meat Boy, we’re proud to bring you the bigger, better, shinier Stealth Bastard Deluxe.
Armed with only your wits and a pair of top of the range Stealthing Goggles, it’s your job to sneak your way through a deadly facility that’s determined to extinguish your fragile little life. With no weapons and no armour, being seen means instant death.
Stay out of the light to avoid the attention of deadly security robots! Leap like a lusty salmon to avoid those zap-happy lasers! Think fast as the walls close in around you! Only the fastest and sneakiest will make it to the exit. Will you be among them?
Unlock the secrets hidden throughout Stealth Bastard Deluxe’s 80 all-new levels to access fancy new stealth equipment, and then use it to knobble friends, family and strangers in the global leaderboards.
And as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll have the opportunity to be the eponymous bastard yourself as you create your own levels with the Stealth Bastard Deluxe level editor. Pit your wits against other users’ levels or just torture others with your own devious creations. We’re not here to judge.
