Inspired by the real life secret agent Violette Szabo, Velvet Assassin tasks players with stealthily infiltrating Nazi strongholds to complete missions most would deem suicidal. Playing through the memories of the now hospitalized Violette, players will experience each mission with a sense of remembrance only enhanced by the surreal art style and intense musical accompaniment. The heart of gameplay keeps players in the shadows, using stealth kills and the virtue of patience. Utilizing items and weapons found during missions, Violette is completely alone in a world of sheer madness and macabre scenery. Completely alone in the heart of darkness, facing the greatest war-machine ever created, Violette must use everything to her advantage; including environmental traps and enemy weapons against themselves.
