Shadowsgate Island is an open-world mystical adventure. One day fisherman Jack was fishing and got into strange mist. He tried to come back home but there was no land anymore. He decided to move through fog and soon he found a mysterious island he knew nothing about, an island stuck between times and dimensions.

This game has been put on hold, but not canceled. Its development is just very slow.

NAQ (Never Asked Questions):

What can you say about gameplay?

On the island you will find its dead habitants who became shadow people and who are stuck like you. You travel to their memories about past and help their souls to rest in peace.
A quest example (without spoilers about main plot line) - you find a man who waited for a letter from his son but never received it and died. You find out that messenger who carried this letter was killed, take the letter from his bag and deliver it to this man. After reading it, he finds rest and dissapears leaving you something which will help you to leave the island.

Is it first-person or not? What about controls?

First person view with character model (you can see your arms/legs and shadow). Main character is animated and has abilities to run, crouch, jump and swim. Sound/footsteps system is dynamic and will react to environment around you, I'm also working on dynamic music system. Simpliest controls - WASD to move, Shift to Run, C to crouch, Space to jump, E to Use and Tab for Inventory.

Some games which are similar to Shadowsgate Island in some ways?
Echo Night on PS1 (by quest mechanics).

Language and release date?
English, Japanese. I want it to be available in Korean if someone help me with that. Release date is about Q3 or Q4 of 2013.

This game is going to be free or commercial?
Commercial. Estimated price will be about 5-10$. The game will be available as DRM-Free digital download, no piracy protection at all. I'm also considering the launch of Indie Go-Go campaign since my money balance is below zero for the last months and living in hell with 200$ per month salary obviously doesn't help the game budget too.

Can I participate?
Yes. PM me if you're an artist, a composer, a modeller, an animator or somebody else and would like to contribute to the game (art, music track, model or something else). But keep in mind that I can only "thank" you giving you a free game copy and listing you in game credits.
