Elysian Shadows showing progress.


With so many new Dreamcast projects in the works, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of what is happening where. We’ve laid off reporting on Elysian Shadows due to our lack of knowledge of the title. Things however, are looking far clearer today with an update from the team’s Facebook page detailing their movements recently. 

The game is shaping up to be a fantastic old-school RPG title that Dreamcast fans have been yearning for since the consoles ‘demise’ in 2001. 

Elysian Shadows is described as ‘an Indie 2D RPG seeking to fuse elements of the old school 2D RPG classics with modern gameplay, dynamic lighting, physics and music”.

Below is a status report taken from the teams official Facebook, a link of which can be found below.

“Recruited a new web developer to help completely revamp our site and rebrand us, recruited a new core Engine/Lua developer to help offset Falco’s current low-level R&D role, we’re still discussing potential YouTube partnerships, and we are talking with two very good candidates for the iOS and Droid implementations of libGyro… We are also having a gigantic game development extravaganza spanning the entire weekend with a few local fans and some “old” faces showing up for AiGD 22… Please help us spread the word of our project and videos. We are starting the initial phases of growing our audience for an all-out Kickstarter campaign. Please help us make the game of our dreams… We want to deliver to you a true “next-gen” 2D RPG experience, and we are pouring our hearts and souls into this project”



One thought on “Elysian Shadows showing progress.

  1. This is the lead developer of the Elysian Shadows project. Just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to post this.

    We are currently going through a bit of a rebranding. As you mentioned, the exact focus of our project has been a little fuzzy at this point, as we’ve produced a multiplatform engine, framework, and Toolkit all for creating our own 2D RPG… So the focus of our multimedia presence has been slightly scattered.

    We are focusing on rebranding and focusing only on Elysian Shadows as a game now now that our development suite is done.

    Not sure whether you guys knew this or not, but we have a series called “Adventures in Game Development” on YouTube with over 8k subscribers. The project is actually quite famous in the indie Youtube development scene. You can get a much better feel for the direction of the project from our last video, Adventures in Game Development Chapter 21:

    ES began as a Dreamcast-exclusive, and has always been a Dreamcast game in my own heart… We are really looking forward to delivering to you what we hope will be a true “next-gen” 2D RPG experience on your Dreamcast.
