The team at Something Classic Games are excited to announce that their love letter to the JRPG genre, Shadows of Adam will launch on February 23 for PC/Mac/Linux.
Shadows of Adam tells the story of a legendary hero named Orazio, who abruptly disappears, leaving behind his adopted daughter, son and a dark secret. With darkness looming over the village of Adam and their legendary hero being lost, it’s up to Kellan and Asrael to save their homeland and uncover the truth behind their father’s abrupt disappearance.
“It’s an honor for us to provide Shadows of Adam in its entirety to newcomers, and of course our Kickstarter supporters, followers, and fans finally getting their full course meal!” said Something Classic Games Creative Director Tim Wendorf. “This game is our tribute to an industry which has consistently rewarded its followers for decades by offering classic after classic to keep even the strongest and most unique RPG urges satiated.”
Players will be able to explore diverse handcrafted environments without having to worry about random encounters. Players will also experience a completely unique AP battle system that encourages skill use and fast-paced combat.
Tucked away from the outside world by the impenetrable haze of the Misty Woods, the village of Adam has mostly lived in peace since the days of the Wraith War. Magic, the dark power that fueled that war has vanished. But darkness is descending once more and Adam’s legendary hero, Orazio, is no more.
