Another sneak peek at our unique RPG card game, Shadowhand, in Developer Vlog #2.
Shadowhand is predominantly about strategic card play, all of which plays out against an adventure story set in wild and lawless 1770s England. Helen Carmichael looks at the setting for the game, and introduces some of the characters. We get to meet smugglers, highwaymen, a fortune teller and some wealthy gentry. We also learn how Lady Corneliea Darkmoor begins her career as the notorious highwaywoman, Shadowhand, as she sets out after her missing friend and companion, Mariah.
