We've been Greenlit!
An interview with Gaming PC Forum
Hello Everyone!

We seem to be slowly but surely creeping up the ranks of the top 100; we are now sitting at #30.
So once again, thank you all so much for the support!

Now back to the topic at hand, last night we had an interview with the guys over at Gaming PC Forum. We addressed a number of the questions you might have had about the game including its direction as well as it's gameplay.

Here is a snippet from the interview:

GPCF: What’s the aim of Keiru, what are you hoping for when people experience playing the game?

PFS: We want them to truly feel like a Ninja. I just find there aren't many games that capture that in its true form. On the topic of ninjas, games tend to do a poor job of putting players in their shoes. They tend to make ninjas come across as warriors who run headlong into battle. It is that feeling of being a cut-throat killer without making a noise. Killing your opponents without them knowing you were there is the ultimate goal we want to set the players towards. The closest example to what we are going for I would say is Dishonoured or Mark of the Ninja.

GPCF:Can you talk a bit more about how the stealth gameplay works?

PFS: With the characters being either completely black or completely white, it really requires the players to have some situational awareness. I think the correct way to describe the stealth gameplay would be ‘perspective based combat’. You may think you’re hidden in that dark corner, but from a different perspective you will stand out like a sore thumb. I think Kieru does tear down the stealth genre to its essence – hiding in plain sight is what we are going for.

Release date: Mid 2016

Kieru - きえる
( kee · eh · roo : v. to vanish, go out, be extinguished . )

Kieru is a unique first person multiplayer stealth game, set in a stark, high contrast world where life and death is literally black and white.

Kieru's world is monochrome, as are the two teams of stealthy Ninjas who occupy it. A black Ninja in shadow or a white Ninja in the light are completely invisible to their oblivious opponents. Stealth, deception and sudden, surprise aggression will win the day.

The single splash of colour in this severe and uncompromising world are the blood trails left by wounded opponents. But do they lead to an easy kill or an ambush?

Great aesthetics, pure gameplay
The monochrome world strips the stealth genre to its essence while providing a clean, clear, graphical distinction between sitting ducks and lurking assassins.

Reward tactical excellence
True Ninja tactics of subtlety and subterfuge are required for success. Death should be unseen.

Multiplayer mayhem
Different multiplayer maps and modes create a variety of team play challenges where only true ninjas will emerge victorious.

Pine Fire Studios is an independent games developer located in Canberra, Australia. We have learned, laughed, developed and cried together, because nothing consolidates a working relationship like tears.
