A year ago, three former Supercell employees decided to make a stealth game for tablets. Not only has the genre been difficult to adapt to touch screens before, but Afterlife Entertainment also wanted to swim against the tide of free-to-play games by developing a story-driven premium game. The result is Tale of Ninja, a game that caters to both the hardcore gamers and those who play more casually. The game is located in feudal Japan. The protagonist seeks revenge on a Jester Demon that murdered his family, seeking the fabled sword called Demonbane.
