Meanwhile in Denver, Colorado, an energetic and passionate team at Abyssal Arts has successfully reached their goal to Kickstart City of the Shroud, a new tactical RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics, and Fire Emblem. Their goal was $14,000 which they obtained in just over one week. Over the course of their full 30 day campaign they managed to raise $16,239 and also get City of the Shroud greenlit on Steam in 3 weeks.

City of the Shroud features a combo-based battle system, a living episodic campaign, online PVP Multiplayer, and mod support. The story was written by the successful independent author Moira Katson. It runs on both Windows and Mac.
