The goal of this project is to build a community driven assassination sandbox game.
Instead of random level generation, this game focuses on user created content and thus comes with a full featured map/mission editor.
NOTE: The current beta release does only contain one pre-built demo mission. However, it is possible to use the mission editor to create some playable maps right now.
- Real-time assassination sandbox gameplay

Command Line Arguments
The game currently accepts two command line arguments, changing how the game is displayed.
You can pass the string "fullscreen" to the executable in order to start it in fullscreen mode.
Additionally, you can provide an integer as command line argument, defining the tile size in pixels.
|Interact with tile below||e|
|Interact in cardinal directions||i,j,k,l|
|Peek in cardinal directions||t,f,g,h|
|Equip next inventory Item||q|
|Set body part aiming||Tab|
|Fire after aiming||Mouse Left Click|
|Put item away||c|
You can interact with objects in five directions: The four cardinal directions around you (N,E,S,W) and the objects on the tile you are standing on.
There is a dedicated button for triggering context actions in each of these directions.
The status line will show you which directional button will equate to which action at any time.
Sneaking context actions
Some actions are performed implicitly through the act of sneaking.
Sneaking is achieved by just go very slow between tiles.
In addition to being more stealthy when moving, sneaking can also be used to perform the following actions:
- Equip a cleaning rag and sneak over a blood splatter to wipe it away.
- Sneak over a body to drag it to a better place.
There is a dedicated sneaking button, enabling you to easily slow down your movement while pressed.
