What is Shank Shore?

Shank Shore is a 2D RPG that is set inside the notorious Shank Shore Penitentiary; a prison with a secret.

Combat will be turn based and will feature the player against one or more enemies. The player will be able to use their various attacks, consumables or even decide to retreat depending on whether the odds are stacked in their favour.

The player will currently be able to choose from 3 characters, each with their own combat style and ties to the other inmates in Shank Shore. The overarching story will include key decisions for the player to shape how the story unfolds as well as being tailored to which character the player has selected.
