The Dream of Shadowlands Episode 2: The Corpse of the Labyrinth

After narrowly escaping their previous surroundings, Rina and Jyl find an abandoned temple to Yurenica. The lingering remains of a demon society hide a twisted maze and the history that its inhabitants left behind. Uncovering a wealth of Shadowlands theology and the frightening creatures that have since overtaken the premises, Rina begins to better understand her circumstances. But as the stakes are risen and new challenges are presented, how will the motivations of those around her change?

Previous Episode

"The Dream of Shadowlands" is a top-down rpg series inspired by the RPGMaker horror niche. It features art assets that were drawn traditionally with ink and paper, and a retro style based on 90's anime. Some of the art, namely the animated cutscenes, are done using traditional cel ink and paint!

This is the second episode in a series planned to run for 5 episodes. To keep track of episodes and receive email alerts about new releases, please check out the official website for the series: https://www.dreamofshadowlands.com/

Congrats on the release of episode 2! Don't worry in time things will work out but I will buy this on either itch.io or steam to support you! Again congrats!

Thank you so much! Your support means a lot, I really wanted to focus on making the game as complete as possible before putting it out publicly.

Woot! Can't wait! (Thought it was an release already!)


Haha unfortunately not yet, but I wanted to use this page for Episode 2's devlogs instead of continuing to use episode 1, so I had to make the page early :)
