Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

Keen is a sliding puzzle game with turn-by-turn tactical combat and a hint of adventure!​

Guide Kim, a grumpy little girl raised by her grandmother to save the world on her journey to stop an evil secret society from destroying her village. Innovative controls and fluid gameplay allow players to choose their own pace, whether fast as a hack’n’slash or methodic as chess. It’s fresh gameplay to a classic genre – moving and attacking are the same thing!

Story

Kim is a lovely eight year-old girl that lives in a peaceful insular island with her grandmother. Abandoned by her mother not long after birth, she must put grievances aside to focus on something of utter importance—Kim is the youngest descendant of a lineage of female warriors and her training is about to begin. The pink heart on the cheeks is their birthmark and the protection of Village, their duty. Following a trail of brainwashed minions and high-tech robot soldiers, she would soon find herself in the middle of a world-domination plot carried on by an evil secret society!

Key Features

Keen‘s main innovation lies in its turn-based movement and attack mechanics. Slide our tiny hero vertically and horizontally to move her around puzzly rooms, or to slash through enemies with her mighty blade. Combat relies on precision-planning of enemy placement—a fresh take on the tactics genre.

  • Six-plus hours Of non-filler content.
  • Unveil Kim’s story as she tries to save the day!
  • Discover secret items, unlock secret levels and get special powers!
  • Slash your way through several unique enemies! Also…boss battles!
  • BIG, maze-like dungeons, spanning from mysterious forests to top-secret underwater labs!
