Acerca deste jogo

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is the next chapter in the Heretic Kingdoms saga and takes place 20 years after the events of Kult: Heretic Kingdoms. It’s an epic adventure with challenging gameplay, a gripping storyline and enchanting graphics. In this isometric action RPG, the player takes on the role of the Devourer, a demon that swallows the souls of the dead and then brings them back into the mortal realm as his puppets. It's up to him to either thwart a major threat and save the world, or to plunge it into complete disaster…


After four of the five members of a secret order known as Penta Nera were murdered, their souls were swallowed by a pack of Devourers. Since then, they move around the mortal realm as the puppets of the Devourers, as a demonic Penta Nera, and ravage the land in search of the essence of souls.
The fifth member of the order, bent on revenge, makes use of the only way to stop them and summons another Devourer: this one is different from his siblings. He can absorb multiple souls, but sometimes becomes more human or schizophrenic, the more souls he absorbs. He can stop the demonic Penta Nera and save the world, or he can plunge it into complete disaster...

Hope it goes well

This is a nice game overall. Story is not bad. Character is amusing. Excellent voice-acting. Music is good. Visual is okay.
To put it simply, this game is worth trying. As for the cons, I will put it in two main points as I see these are quite important.

  1. Game-play. This is not at all a problem for me. I enjoy it as it is. However, I think this has to be warned. The game-play is different from Diablo and Torchlight. I can see that people expect something similar when they dive into the game. The answer is 'no'. The game-play is a lot slower. As a gamer who has play all of those games, I enjoy it with no complaint though.

  2. This is an important point. The game is unfinished, as in the story-line. It's just 'Book I: Devourer of Souls'. There is an continuation. And there seems to be a problem of insolvency. Not sure how it goes. You can check the community hub for more information. But I hope they pull through, this is a fantastic game.

I recommend the game nonetheless.

NOTE: I'm still playing this game, and haven't finished the first book yet, I'll probably update this review as soon as I've finished my first playthrough of book 1.
Also, I'm trying to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, so some things may be worded quite vaguely. My apologies for that.

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is one of the most interesting games I've ever played. The gameplay is similar to that of Diablo 3, in that you have the same camera perspective and you basically spam your abilities to kill enemies. However, this game does it with a simple twist, the ability to move between two realms at will.

What this simple mechanic does, is that you actually need to think whenever you're fighting against a group of enemies, as some of them are exclusive to one of either realms. I thoroughly enjoyed battling a boss, and using this to my advantage.

The story of the game has been pretty good so far, and the characters that you control are quite interesting. The fact that your characters have their very own story adds a huge amount of replayability to the game which is really nice.

Despite all the good points though, some players may not enjoy the game that much due to the rather slow progression in stats and power, I haven't had any trouble with enemies on normal mode yet, but you don't feel very powerful either, since you'll die quickly if you stay within the range of your enemies' attacks. Do take note that I play a ranged character, it is possible that melee characters do not suffer from this issue.

I personally believe that the slow progression is kind of nice. It really is a great feeling when you finally level up, like you really accomplished something. And usually you do notice a change in power due to the scaling as you invest skill points into skills or passives.

Graphics-wise the game is absolutely gorgeous, particle effects in combat are not over the top and flow nicely. The environmental art within the game is great too. Alongside the music and narrative it really immerses yourself within the game.

One should most definitely buy this game if they enjoy a good story with a large amount of side-quests and simple, yet mechanically interesting combat.

If you enjoyed the Diablo III Campaign, buy this.

The game is amazing... The combat system is rather unique, you can select with wich character you will handle a battle and you can switch character on a whim, you can do interedting combo if you used the system wisely.
The crafting is simple but efficient.
There is some interesting puzzle in the game and you need to alternate between the real world and the shadow world to find the solution to some of them.
The graphic are pretty nice and there is really a nice atmosphere tot the game.
I would recommend that game anytime.

After some embittering issues with their publisher, Games Farm has re-acquired control of their IP - including their classic Kult: Heretic Kingdoms. Rewarding customers with more game instead of a paywall was how they decided to celebrate.

Any dev who puts their fans first will always be a winner to me.

This game reminds me how spoiled we've been as gamers the last five or ten years; If I had played this game before having played Diablo 3, Borderlands 2 or Torchlight 2, I'd have declared this one of the better titles of it's time. There are tons of good ideas here, as well as old classic ones, all great reasons to buy and enjoy this game. I'll list a few of them below.

First of all, this game is a classic call back to titles like the original Diablo, Ultima, Might and Magic and Golden Axe. I say that because the plot, characters, items and abilities are reminiscent of a simpler formula for what made roleplaying games fun: Genuinely mysterious plots, needing to pick through lots of containers, trying to find ways through locked doors, tons of areas to explore and re-explore, life-threatening bosses, and cool new upgrades in each place you visit - All tropes we're familiar with, and elements we've largely taken for granted in today's world of grindy hyper-fantasy turbo-speed action games.

To talk about the new, the first thing you'll notice is that the pacing in combat is intentionally slower than most modern games because you actually have tons of different things you can do at any given time. The primary gimmick is that you can switch between characters at will but only play one at a time, which has a great justification in the game, which also justifies the manner in which you heal your party, the purposing behind which is very well thought out and works very well. The game opens up and starts throwing lots more monsters and compromising situations at you as you acquire new abilities and party members, which you will begin to switch between often. Once you start to learn the combos you can do and the pace at which you can do them, strategies for dealing with different kinds of badguys become endless and the gameplay becomes very rewarding.

Add on top of this that the voice acting and plot is excellent despite having been developed in Europe and the color and environments are nothing short of beautiful, and you will spend a lot of time enjoying this game. The only complaints here are that the game starts off maybe a little too slow, and there isn't enough to do as far as playing the first character you start out as for the first hour or two. After hour two, the game becomes much more interesting. An ideal price for this title would be between 10 and 15 dollars as of when this review is going up. I'm only a quarter of the way through and I have to say, if the game is as long as I believe it is and keeps presenting new and interesting challenges along the way, it would be worth playing through at least once even at full price.

TLDR, 8 out of 10. I would say this is a very good break-out title for the developer Games Farm, and we'll be expecting to see bigger, faster, harder and better from them in the future.
