Shadow of the Guild Direct Download
Shadow of the Guild is a 2D side scrolling beat-em-up adventure. Use and evolve your skills through combo attacks, powerful spells and stealthy assassinations to defeat your enemies! Aridia, is an parched planet where water is a scarce commodity. Where magic is omnipresent. Where the blacksmith is a pyromancer and the builder is telekinetic. The planet’s kingdoms call on the services of the Merchant Guild of Rain, the most powerful organization existing to provide their people with water. From its Flying Fortress, the Guild sends hundreds of ships to capture clouds to sell to the kingdoms. Their mastery of the skies is complete despite the attacks carried out by the Pirate Guild. Aridia’s Eastern Empire refuses to buy the services of the Guild, building its own fleet of ships and attempting to capture the water trade on the planet. The empire is ruled by Emperor Gethro III. Investing heavily in scientific research, Gethro III fears that his discoveries will attract greed. The emperor then decides to close his borders and starts to rule with an iron fist. 10 years later, a discovery made at the cost of immense sacrifices by the Guild of Informers reveals the emperor succeeded in creating clouds with their new technology, freeing the planet from the laws of nature and the monopoly of the Rain Merchants Guild.
You can survive a few hits from smaller enemies or touching a few spikes, but fall into a fire and you die instantly. 10 spells and 6 abilities can be learned, attack combos deal more damage. Just attacking all foes head-on is not the best option, lure them into traps and you receive less damage yourself, healing potions are limited and your healing spell (once your learned it) requires mana. Read some books or attend a medieval rock concert to relax, fight a ship battle, talk to various people. Don’t be seen by anybody during a stealth mission (or you have to restart). Not an epic masterpiece, but this game won’t get repetitive or boring while it lasts. Shadow of the Guild seems to be an indie title that’s a mash up of various genres. The best way I can describe it, Shadow of The Guild is a short, RPG with platforming, hack and slash, and stealth elements. And for a small indie team’s first game, while not without its flaws, I’m going to have to say, Guild Studio pulled it off pretty well.
Shadow of the Guild Direct Play:
I’ve had my eye on this title long before release, based on its art style alone. The hand drawn, comic book, graphic novel style, real nice. The stealth kills, truly entertaining. All isn’t perfect mind you, as playing this, you will see where Shadow of The Guild lacks a certain triple A polish, the animations are what took the biggest hit. I am aware, from playing games like Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story, that this is possibly an intentional animation style, but if it is, I can’t say I’m in love with it. The animations look like they’re missing several needed frames. You can really see what I’m talking about when the characters walk and fall or get up from a fall. But other than that, I’m really digging these visuals, in game and the cutscenes, real nice. In the sound department, the composer deserves a bonus. I love the score, the overall package here, the story, the visuals, the gameplay, well put together, but the score really brought everything to life. Unfortunately, there is no voice acting, text only. I’m thinking though, if this had some quality voice acting, things would have really gone up several notches. The sound effects were also good, but while going through a few of the exploration sections,
