The shores beckon...
Bowling Green, KY (09/26/18) - We are proud to partner with indie studio Vallynne, a multinational team of industry veterans hailing from Russia, Japan, Spain, and the UK, with a plan to bring Shores Unknown to Nintendo Switch and PC in late 2019. Combining the foundational mechanics of exploration, character growth, and decision-critical storytelling, Shores Unknown is a single-player tactical RPG featuring an innovative gridless battle system combined with epic fights against raid bosses and large armies.
Vallynne's development team brings with them a breadth of industry experience, helping to drive their vision for Shores' unique, genre-defining gameplay. Writers Oli Chance and Morgan Rushton are crafting the narrative; they have previously worked on several Final Fantasy titles, as well as the Ni No Kuni and Dragon Quest series. The composer, Claudi Martinez, brings his keen ear and experience in sound design from notable projects such as Kingdom of Loot.
Some creatures are more fierce than others... and some are more fierce than these.
Shores Unknown takes place in a land ruled by the iron-fisted Crown, and policed by the fearsome Inquisition, from whom it is said there is no escape. To the south lies the Empire and perpetual war, while to the north there is only the Murk--a seething wall of fog from which no ship has ever returned. In the midst of these grand forces, both natural and otherwise, our heroes must find a way to survive and to pursue their dreams of liberty.
Play as the newly-made leader of a mercenary company, fresh off an assignment gone awry. Now on the wrong side of the Crown, allies and loyalty are paramount. Forced to venture through the maw of the Murk in a search for truth, players will explore unknown lands, forge new alliances, and wage battle against those who would see to their end. What dangers await on Shores Unknown?
Enemies or allegiants?
Even in its earliest stages of development, Shores Unknown has already been recognized as a game to keep an eye on by sites such as IndieDB and RPGWatch. Join the growing Shores Unknown community on Discord! And follow the devs on Twitter!
