DeRail Games is the creator of “Shadow of the Game” an multiple award winning experimental 2D adventure inspired by the old school adventure games from the 90’s developed for online distribution.
This is a award winning game which tells a multilayered story based in a fictive MMO. It delivers an unpredictable journey of discovery where the player gets to know a variety of characters, their lives and situations. These characters each have their own approach to life. The surprising turns in the story dialog are broken up by puzzles to solve and actions to take. The player has to reason out unusual ways to use items and other characters so as to move forward in the game. In areas with limited interactivity, clever use of movement can solve a dilemma, for example luring a chicken to stand in just the right place so that the player can sprint past to pick up a necessary item. Everyday objects found in an area can be combined with other things to make useful tools to solve a problem. Puzzles serve a dual purpose; they not only provide a challenge where the player gets to use their heads, but also give hints of developments in the story which have not been revealed yet.
Add to all this, the humor which is everywhere in this game, and you have quite an unusual and interesting play experience.
