Every once in a while I see an ad for this game and today I saw it listed in Steam as coming soon.  Does anyone know much about it?  I haven’t seen any real coverage but it sounds interesting.
From what I gather its a 3rd person sneaker where you play a female assassin during WWII.  I believe that it’s supposed to be based on a true story as well.

I remember reading something about the title but there is where my knowledge of the game stops.  I guess I will see how the reviews and feedback go before I jump into the game.

I know it may sound silly, but I hate playing the role of a chick in a video game.  It just makes me feel like I'm cross dressing in a video game or something.  I just don't relate to the character that well.

From what I've read, the story is told in flashbacks with the lead female being bedridden dying of some disease and hopped up on morphine.  It's all one big fever dream as she recounts the horrors of her past.  They also point out her sexy nighty she's wearing, which is weird since they're trying to plug both her looks and how real things are.

Haven't seen much of the gameplay itself, I'd imagine it being a bit like Hitman in gameplay.

The way they've been marketing this is just odd, I have a feeling it won't be that good, but I like being surprised.

I stumbled across mention of it one day and was intrigued. I'm hoping they pull it off. Official (interactive) site here:
