A specter haunts the small, remote village of Adam. It is the ghost of its dour hero, Orazio, who set out 10 years ago without explanation and never returned, leaving his son and adopted daughter to wrestle with the dark secret he left behind. A secret that must now be revealed if the children hope to save their departed father, though its revelation could unhinge the world. Shadows of Adam is a 16-bit era, character-driven JRPG with an indie soul. Players will journey through a vivid and mysterious world and take on a cast of comical and brutal foes in fast-paced battles. Navigate your way through treacherous dungeons such as the ominous Tangle, dizzying Wind Tower, or foreboding Haunted Swamp. Each dungeon is designed with innovative puzzles and unique game play to keep the player captivated and coming back for more. Prepare for a slippery slope of twists and turns all the way as our characters find themselves on a path to an epic conclusion!

"While DLC for a JRPG is a rarity in itself, we aimed to exceed any expectations in order to absolutely blow the minds of our players. Our fan's conviction to Shadows of Adam is a testament to the quality we sought to achieve, and Guild of the Artificers is our parting gift recognizing their undying loyalty."
-Timothy Wendorf, Creative Director

"I'm beyond excited to release Guild of the Artificers to our fans. We've put a lot of heart into making this as great as possible. Something we couldn't have done without all the support and feedback from our wonderful community of Shadows of Adam players."
-Tyler Mire, Composer and Project Manager
