Developer Curve Studios has today confirmed that Stealth Bastard Deluxe, the rebuilt version of Curve’s acclaimed prototype which has been downloaded over 135,000 times, will be available worldwide on Steam on November 28th.
Stealth Bastard Deluxe, described as a cross between Metal Gear Solid and Super Meat Boy, is divided in eight chapters, with 80 levels in total, charting the adventures of the protagonist, as he runs, jumps, scuttles and slides through the facility in a bid to escape his fate.The Deluxe version will feature new gadgets, new levels, new enemies and new traps. The game also comes with a revised editor, allowing players to experiment with their own set of traps to create fiendish levels which can be shared globally.
“We’ve learnt so much since we released the original prototype last year,” says Jonathan Biddle, design director, Curve Studios. “And it’s all been poured into Stealth Bastard Deluxe. The feedback from the community has given us the impetus to create a full version of the original idea – and we’re absolutely thrilled with how it’s shaping up. Seeing the game evolve from a single mechanic of “don’t be seen or you will get killed”, into a fully-fledged Steam release has been enormously rewarding – and we can’t wait to get the full version out there and see how the Steam community reacts.”
Stealth Bastard Deluxe will be priced at $9.99 / £6.99 / €8.99.
