With Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and Desperados 3, Mimimi Games has delivered two excellent real-time stealth tactics games in recent years, and the developer has now come out with another title in that line of games.

Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is out today on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Set in a fantasy pirate setting, Shadow Gambit puts players in control of a crew of pirates with unique magical abilities as they head off on a treasure hunt in a race against the forces of the Inquisition.

The gameplay centers around real-time tactics and emphasizes stealth above all else, putting players in vast stealth sandboxes and encouraging experimentation and creativity in how you use your surroundings to your advantage and what you do with your crew’s unique set of abilities. Check out its launch trailer below for a taste of what it has in store.

In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is an excellent game. With its wonderfully realized fantasy pirate setting, it instantly pulls you into its world, and with a combination of tight and perfectly implemented mechanics, excellently designed stealth sandboxes, and a colourful cast of characters that’s an absolute blast to play as, it delivers a consistently fun and inventive adventure where the stealth, tactics, and experimentation never lose any of their charm, right up until the credits roll.” Read the full review through here.
