Shadows of Adam

 

Do you like the SNES style RPGs of old? If so, CIRCLE Ent. has announced on Twitter that they are bringing a new one to the Nintendo Switch. Shadows of Adam is an RPG that exudes the SNES era style, and was created by indie developer Something Classic Games LLC. The game originally launched on Steam in February of 2017. Here’s CIRCLE Ent.’s Twitter announcement, which even includes a tiny clip of the game running on the Nintendo Switch:

 

The village of Adam has long lived in peace, hidden away in the dense haze of Misty Woods. This peace has lasted since the days of the long passed Wraith War. Though the dark power that fueled that conflict has long since vanished, darkness is once again falling on the land. Worse, Adam’s hero, Ozario is no longer around, having left a decade ago with no explanation! His son and adopted daughter now must wrestle with the dark secret that he left behind. That secret will have to be uncovered if the children are going to save Adam, and their departed father. However, this secret holds a revelation that could unhinge the world itself.

Here’s the game’s original launch trailer, showing off the game in action with its SNES goodness:

 

There is no release date for the Nintendo Switch version yet, but the Steam version is available for $14.99. You can also find out more about the game at the Shadows of Adam official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
