Absolver studio Sloclap is back with an all-new captivating game Sifu coming later this year for Playstation and PC.
Sifu is a game that transforms the pupil into the master very literally, as they are resurrected slightly older and more experienced every time the player character dies. Sifu is expected to be released this fall on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs as an artful and true-to-combat Kung Fu game exploring themes of retribution and redemption (via the Epic Games Store).
Sifu places you in charge of a young Kung-Fu student on a journey of vengeance, a third-person action game featuring intense hand-to-hand combat. He will have to draw deep into his special knowledge of Pak-Mei Kung-Fu to triumph, chasing after shadows from his history, one against all.
Pak Mei (also identified as Bak Mei, Pak Mee, and Pai Mai) is thought to be amongst the Shaolin’s Five Elders, who survived a fire that burned Henan’s main temple. Soon after the monks that lived there were slaughtered. Pak Mei’s overall fighting style is one of explosive strength, strongly inspired by the tiger’s ruthlessness coupled with the leopard’s sharpness; it also combines some components of the styles of Shaolin Snake, Crain, and Dragon.
Through the concealed parts of the city, from the gang-ridden neighborhoods to the cold hallways of the corporate buildings, the hunt for your adversaries will take you. One day you have, and countless enemies on your path. The price you pay will be time. The key to your survival is careful positioning and clever use of the environment to your advantage. Use all that is available to you: throwable objects, improvised weapons, windows, and ledges… The odds are heavily against you and there will be no mercy shown to you.
For the body and the mind, Kung Fu is a path. Learn from your mistakes, unlock special abilities, and find the power inside yourself to master Pak-Mei Kung-Fu’s powerful techniques. We at Geek Impulse are excited about this game.
