Greetings from the Elysian Shadows development team!
Elysian Shadows is an indie 2D RPG being developed for Windows, OSX, Linux, Droid, iOS, and Sega Dreamcast. We fuse aspects of 16-bit classical RPGs such as Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, and Final Fantasy, with a highly stylized, modern vision by using dynamic lighting, physics and audio engines along with swapping between 2D and 3D perspectives. Our goal is to create a "next-gen" 2D RPG in terms of gameplay, graphics, and audio while still remaining true to the games that inspired us to become developers.
Our team and game are best known for our ongoing YouTube series "Adventures in Game Development," where we post regular behind-the-scenes updates on ES and let people in on the late nights, math, code, music, art, blood, sweat, and tears that go into creating an indie game. Please check out our channel and videos!
