All About Teamwork in City of the Shroud

Many hands make light work… and occasional fist fights.

Togetherness has the potential to help us grow. Cities can thrive upon a working collective, but things can easily go awry. Betrayals, jealousies and hunger for power have their way all too easily with us humans, and their power over our actions might just lead a civilisation to its ruin.

Iskendrun is a deprived city, with an ethereal barrier separating it from the rest of the world. The townsfolk are enveloped in violence and corruption, whilst the beat of civil war surges overhead amongst the city’s multiple factions. And all the while, the one who trapped the city remains an ever present mystery.

City of the Shroud (via. Indie Game Mag) is a tactical RPG by developer Abyssal Arts. Players can choose a faction to represent their beliefs, and build a character from one of six available classes, including a Brute, a Mage and a Gunner. Combat comprises an intriguing blend of tactical manoeuvres and combo systems common to fighting games, allowing players to chain a variety of different attacks. But a sharper blade calls for a sharper wit. City of the Shroud’s narrative operates around player choice, and as events are affected by players’ collective actions, communal decision making could prove as deadly to Iskendrun as any of its wieldable weapons. Whilst the single player campaign will be episodic, the game will also feature PvP combat, allowing players to put their skills to the test and challenge others.

The game is currently being funded through Kickstarter, Pledge rewards range from digital copies of the game and beta access to an original short story collection, and opportunities for backers to star in their own series of side quests.

According to the game’s Kickstarter page, City of the Shroud is running on PC Windows and Mac, aiming for an official release on Steam. The game is additionally available to vote for on Steam Greenlight.
