Of all the faux-retro offerings to appear this year, Shadows of Adam has long looked like the most promising. An RPG being developed with obvious care and a love of the genre scheduled for release through Steam. Now that it’s out, MBU takes a look at Something Classic’s first release.
The original Doom and Destiny was an exercise in satire, created using RPG Maker and available for a small fee on iOS and Android among other avenues such as Steam. Whilst it could be heavy-handed it served as funny enough to review well and be a moderate success. It’s sequel, Doom and Destiny 2 is far more ambitious in every sense of the word.
With the current fad in gaming being the replication of a ‘retro’ look or feel to appeal to a gamer’s sense of nostalgia, we thought that now would be a good time to look up a trilogy of RPGs that actually ARE from a by-gone era and evaluate them as free indie titles using the values we would apply to a modern indie release.
