Introducing The Siege and the Sandfox by Cardboard Sword!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the incredibly talented folks at Cardboard Sword to bring you The Siege and the Sandfox!

The Siege and the Sandfox is a gorgeous 2D “Stealthvania” – by infusing stealth into the typical Metroidvania experience, Cardboard Sword has brought a unique twist to the genre.

A shining city lies besieged in the heart of a vast desert. As the moon rises over the royal palace a notorious thief watches the king die to a traitor’s hand. Discovered, falsely accused, and thrown into the labyrinthine dungeons, the thief must escape to tell the tale or else the city will fall.

Master dynamic acrobatic abilities to traverse the cavernous depths of an ancient underground prison, evading detection and avoiding certain death at the hands of a sand-borne evil. Save the Kingdom – foil the enemy’s attempt to strike at the heart of the city!


Cardboard Sword is a UK-based indie development studio formed by experienced AAA developers. Between them, they’ve worked on titles including LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, Forza Horizon 1, 2 & 3, Elite: Dangerous, and more — in other words, they really know their stuff! We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with them on their debut title as independent developers.
