Test Flight: Ronin

Developer Tomasz Wacławek describes Ronin (site) as a turn-based action platformer, which seems like a contradiction in terms… But players are able to sneak around in real-time to get the drop on their opponents, and plan out a turn-based series of attacks to work toward a killing blow. The game stars a masked heroine who is seeking revenge against several members of a corporation. She must employ stealth and plan out her moves in order to sneak up on her opponents across 15 levels and deliver swift vengeance. The game looks strongly reminiscent of Gunpoint in its presentation and stealth-based navigation, but with less switch-flippery and more ninja-swordery.

Ronin is headed to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam in May. The game is up for preorder now, and the developer has released a 3-level demo on their Steam page if you want to give it a go for yourself.
