City of the Shroud's first trailer is now live, and we’re also releasing a community-driven story preview, available now exclusively for Kickstarter backers.

During the Kickstarter, we'll be running a 4-part mini-story that will play out over the course of the campaign (new episodes released every 7~10 days). Backers will get exclusive access to the story and the ability to influence it - their choices, along with every other players’, will drive the story in each episode over the month in a live campaign written by chart-topping author Moira Katson.

Combat in City of the Shroud uses a real-time tactical fighting system where you unleash special moves, build powerful combos, and outmaneuver your opponent in a format with incredible depth but that is easy enough to play with one hand.

The story in City of the Shroud is a new approach to video game narrative: a live, episodic campaign where every player's actions impact how the story unfolds for the entire community. Each episode is crafted based on the cumulative effects of every player's actions by our resident novelist Moira Katson, author of The Light & Shadow Trilogy as well as other stories and novels. Moira has topped the Amazon Fantasy download charts 3 times since making her debut only a couple of years ago.
