Burnaby, Canada— November 20, 2014— Ossian Studios Inc., founded by former BioWare producer and developer of top-quality role-playing games (RPGs), announced today that The Shadow Sun is available now on Android devices. With polished gameplay and a new camera system, The Shadow Sun offers a deep, single-player role-playing experience with more than 10 hours of gameplay through a gripping, dark fantasy story and intense visceral combat against the many wicked creatures of Shar.
“We listened to our players and made tweaks to the gameplay and camera in The Shadow Sun to bring a truly great adventure to Android devices,” said Alan Miranda, CEO of Ossian Studios. “It’s a great coincidence that my friends and past colleagues at BioWare have just launched Dragon Age Inquisition at the same time, and The Shadow Sun is a deep mobile action RPG, that will scratch that itch as RPG fans wait to head home to play the next masterpiece in BioWare’s incredible franchise. Much of my development knowledge stems from the time that I spent working with Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, the founders of the studio and true masters of the genre.”
Taking place in the vast and cursed city of Shar, The Shadow Sun brings the ultimate western action RPG to Android devices. Surrounded by desolate deserts, players will explore the ancient city held within the grip of a mysterious plague. With more than 10 hours of gameplay, fans will journey through 70 unique areas and uncover 200 different items, ancient treasures, and hidden secrets to help them prepare for combat against deadly enemies across the city. Gamers can customize their character, adopt a faithful dog, and ally with companions who will join you in this epic adventure with multiple quest solving options and more than 30 attacks, spells, and skills to choose from. Rendered in full 3D graphics using the Unity engine, The Shadow Sun offers a deep, single-player role-playing experience unseen in the mobile gaming space.
Developed by Ossian Studios, The Shadow Sun is now available on Android devices on Google Play and on iOS in the App Store.
