Sifu is a martial arts fighting game with a flowing control system and ageing protagonist. You fight with Kung-Fu combat designed with impact and authenticity in mind.

You play a young Kung-Fu student on a quest to avenge his family who were murdered by a squad of mysterious assassins. After eight years preparing his revenge, the day has come. Through linear levels and more open environments you hunt down the murderers and anyone else in your way

He has the help of a magical pendant. But it comes with a cost: he gets older every time he comes back to life until eventually he has to start again. The challenge is to see how long you'll survive before having to start his quest again.

Along with this unusual ageing mechanic, the combat itself requires careful positioning and intelligent use of the environment to gain the advantage. You end up using everything at your disposal to survive: throwable objects, makeshift weapons, windows and ledges.

Each time you start again you can learn from your errors, unlock unique skills, and find the strength within yourself to master the devastating techniques of Pak-Mei Kung-Fu.
