'1428: Shadows Over Silesia' Announced - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 18, 2020 @ 5:48 p.m. PST

Shadows over Silesia is a dark action adventure game set in real medieval Silesia/Europe.

1428: Shadows Over Silesia is a unique mix of several genres: the fighting sequences resemble RPGs, the riddles and dialogues resemble adventure games from the 90’s, but there are also true historical events in the background, difficult battles, stealth passages and challenging puzzles.

You won’t come across a game like this at every corner.

Europe is in the middle of religious upheaval and many preachers predict that the end of the world is near. The year is 1428 and the Hussites have just set out on their Silesian campaign. These heretics appear to be the biggest threat in the kingless country. But true evil of a completely different kind is lurking nearby and it will not engage in religious disputes.

After a successful playtest, the game is leaving its pre-production phase and releasing the first teaser trailer to let people know it’s on the way.

Key Features:

  • An interesting story, with true historical events in the background. The teaser trailer successfully masks the fact that demons, rituals, sex, dark magic, and blood all feature in the game. Simply everything that belongs to modern fantasy, right?
  • Linear gameplay based on chapters and levels. Players can try as hard as they wish but as Murphy already discovered, if something can go wrong, it will.
  • Challenging riddles and puzzles in the style of classic adventure games. Nothing for the weak of heart.
  • Exploration of underground dungeons, caves, monasteries, or castles. And it’s not going to be a pretty sight. One shouldn‘t romanticize medieval times too much.
  • Isometric, stylized, slightly fairytale-like, but mostly dark low poly graphics. In other words – artistic intentions can work quite well as a cover for a low budget.
  • Stealth passages. But beware! You can’t just hide in the hay and think – if I can’t see them, they can’t see me. This is not Assassins Creed.
  • A combat system where being outnumbered is a problem. Those demons and skeletons might be already dead, but that doesn’t mean that they won‘t happily invite one more soul to join their ranks. Those who don’t like challenges and have no patience should wait for Diablo IV.

1428: Shadows Over Silesia is in development for PC (Steam), with other platforms being considered.
