The Game is the scene of the crime.
Shadow of the Game is a multiple award-winning roleplaying title with a strong focus on interactive storytelling. One of the strongest guilds in a fictive MMORPG is embarking on the last expansion’s final raid to become the highest ranking guild in game. The event is so tremendous that even the MMO’s lead developers at Gizzard are watching the raid on live-stream. Things start to slowly fall apart when the guild’s outcast “Cookie” makes his return sporting an illegal race and bringing power-grinded companions. Friendships are put to the test, internships are on the line, and the gamers are forced to take action in the “real world”.
idn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. It wasn't that the story wasn't enthralling, because it definitely was. I also love the whole "game-ception" thing going on here, but it could've used more actual gameplay. I don't mind visual novel-type of games at all, I actually rather enjoy them, it's just that this game could've benefited from some serious gameplay mechanics that would've been the icing on the proverbial cake. Definitely worth getting though, and I recommend it to anyone who wants a good chuckle.
