City of the Shroud invites players to participate in a grand experiment
If you play City of the Shroud quickly enough, you will help decide how its story progresses.
Abyssal Arts today launched the first of four chapters that will eventually tell the complete story of City of the Shroud, a tactical RPG arriving first on digital storefronts for PC/Mac and later on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developer calls the game an experiment because the team will allow the actions of early players to determine the outcome of the overall plot.
"PC gamers who join in the fun of chapter one prior to the development of chapter two will make decisions that impact who lives, who dies and who rises to power in a truly player-driven narrative," notes a press release issued earlier today to announce the game's arrival on Steam and the Humble Bundle store. "The community's collective in-game actions will be the key driver for future episodes written by the developers, including Amazon bestselling author Moira Katson and former Capcom production manager Keaton White."
The game invites players to Iskendrun, a city that is shut off from the outside world even as it deals with evil sorcery that is spreading through its streets like a plague. Players are thrown in the middle of the chaos as five faction leaders struggle for power and the citizens look for a savior.
