Shadows: Awakening Box Art

This game was released on August 31, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Shadows: Awakening is an isometric single-player RPG with real-time combat developed by Games Farm and published by Kalypso Media. It is the so-called Book II of Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, which itself is a sequel of the 2005 classic Kult: Heretic Kingdoms.

In Shadows Awakening the player embodies the Devourer: a demon with the ability to consume souls of heroes and use them as puppets. As each of them retains their personality, this results in a unique party system with internal dialogues and rivalries inside the Devourer. The game boasts 40+ hours of gameplay and is said to have substantial replayability. As they explore the Heretic Kingdoms, the players may switch seamlessly between the mortal plane and the Shadow Realm inhabited by ghosts and spirits.
