Desperados 3 Dev Returns with Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew on PS5



Mimi Games is the developer behind Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and Desperados III, both of which are highly regarded stealth strategy titles. Now, the studio has announced its next project – Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew – which applies the same style of gameplay to the golden age of piracy.

Sailing the seas on a cursed ghost ship with a living soul, your pirate crew is hell-bent on finding lost treasures that grant great power. Of course, an army of soldiers stands between you and that treasure, and you’ll need to use all your supernatural abilities to hide and/or take down enemies in your path.

The trailer above doesn’t give much away in terms of gameplay, but if you’ve played one of Mimimi’s games before, you’ll have a rough idea of ​​what to expect. Here’s a gameplay breakdown just in case:

Usually the game is played in real time, but you can pause the action whenever you want. In this case, you can evaluate the map and perform queued exercises for all your crewmates, which will then be done simultaneously. If you mess up, you can use a magical time-rewind ability. Each character will of course have their own unique weapons and powers, which you can combine to great effect.

Mimimi has proven itself with the last two strategy games it’s put out, so we’re confident it’ll be just as deep and interesting. Shadow Gambit: Cursed Crew arrives on PS5 this year.
