Cyber Shadow Developer Confirms 4-10 Hours of Gameplay

The announcement trailer for Cyber Shadow dropped in 2019. However, little has been said about the game. Consequently, my little retro heart certainly went into overdrive anticipating some slick 2D sidescrolling action.

In a recent Nintendo Enthusiast interview with Finnish solo developer Aarne Hunziker, we learn the game’s approximate completion to be 4 to 10 hours. Maybe this seems short compared to AAA open-world experiences but compared to 2D sidescroller, this is an admiral length. Hunziker said;

“Personally, I can complete the game in a few hours. But playtesters are taking anywhere from 4 to 10 hours to reach the ending. This is not counting feats / achievements”.

Fans of the genre will attest that these games are not ‘one-time’ experiences. You can expect much more milage from the game when you consider achievements and certainly speedrunning attempts.

Cyber Shadow is being published by Shovel Knight creators Yacht Club Games and will be available on all current platforms. Whilst no release date has been announced, it is currently available for pre-order on PC.
