Following the development of a game you're excited about can be an emotional ride. We originally got excited for the action-RPG The Shadow Sun from Ossian Studios way back in October of 2010. The visuals, for that time, looked really impressive, and the developers at Ossian had experience working on some beloved RPG franchises over the years, like games in the Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate series.
It was a game worth getting excited for, but after missing its intended "late 2010" release things fell disappointingly silent on the Shadow Sun front save for the occasional forum post that they were indeed still toiling away at it.
Then earlier this year in May, Ossian released a progress update and a batch of new screens. It seemed that the story and basic concept of The Shadow Sun remained the same, but the game had expanded greatly in terms of scope and improved visuals. More than two years later, I found myself excited all over again for The Shadow Sun.
This week Ossian sent along another progress update, and another set of new screens. They also mention that The Shadow Sun is currently in beta and moving along smoothly, meaning that we might actually, seriously, for realsies get to play it in the not-too-distant future!
Make sure that you have The Shadow Sun locked and loaded on your TouchArcade [Free] app Watch List so you can get an alert when more news hits, like a firm release date, and check out what people in the forums are saying about this highly-anticipated RPG. The good news is that with the beta underway Ossian should be able to hit their intended release of this summer, and I'm really hoping that it will be well worth the wait.
