Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
DeRail Game’s multiple award-winning title Shadow of the Game is now available for pre order exclusively on Gamersgate. The game hits the digital shelves on December 6th. The game will be released as a standalone game and will include a special bonus. It will not be in episode format; the whole game will be released at once. Shadow of the Game is a multiple award-winning roleplaying title with a strong focus on interactive storytelling. The game is like an interactive visual novel that explores the boundaries between online identities and real-life identities.
One of the strongest guilds in a fictive MMORPG is embarking on the last expansion’s final raid to become the highest ranking guild in game. The event is so tremendous that even the MMO’s lead developers at Gizzard are watching the raid on live-stream. Things start to slowly fall apart when the guild’s outcast “Cookie” makes his return sporting an illegal race and bringing power-grinded companions. Friendships are put to the test, internships are on the line, and the gamers are forced to take action in the “real world”.
Shadow of the Game is an experimental title with 12-18 hours of multi-branching story which is spiced up with dialogue options, story contextual puzzles, references to popular culture, and tons of mysteries. The story and its features are the gameplay in this game. It is a niche title which aims to not only entertain, but to provoke and to bend your mind with its hidden mysteries. There are always hints to the story whether you are clicking through a cut-scene, walking around chatting with people, or solving puzzles. Everything is connected, even though it might not seem to be at first.
Shadow of the Game is developed by DeRail games for online distribution. Several distribution sites are already confirmed, but the developer is still interested in new business agreements and opportunities. DeRail Games is publishing Shadow of the Game itself. The game includes the original soundtrack with a free-to-use license, as well as rich collection of art assets.
