Shadow Cities - Location Based MMORPG

We are excited to introduce Shadow Cities, a brand new location aware MMORPG!

In Shadow Cities you can step out on the streets of your city and explore our massive game world. Moving in the real world moves you in the game world. Your city is a game.

The goal of the game is to conquer your city for your team and to level up with your character to unlock new more powerfull spells.

Mages have been gone for centuries and spirits have taken over. Become a mage and help humanity to regain the world. Hunt spirits, gain experience and learn more and more powerful spells. Use your magic and strategy to battle for the control of your neighborhood with your friends.

Here's a few shots. You can click to enlarge the photos.

This is a project that we’ve been working for quite some time and are now ready to preview to you guys. We’re making a MMORPG-world where you can fight on the streets and conquer your city. There are lot of cool things coming along so stay tuned.

- 15 initial levels
- Rune draw spell system. Draw the magical runes on the touch screen to do magic.
- Spell specialization. Will you become a battle mage or a healer of others?
- The biggest game world out there. All the places in the world are mapped out and part of the game. Including your neighborhood.
- Don’t get stuck. You can jump to other cities or neighborhoods as long as you have allies there.
- Two sides waging war against the spirits and each other: The Architects and the Animators. Will you be a cool and calculating tech mage or a honorable and impulsive spell artist.

Coming this year Shadow Cities by Grey Area. Look around. Your city is a game.

Hey Martin. Walking around moves you in the game world but you can also teleport to your friends locations and warp between places. It should work well on iPod touch as well especially with WiFi location support.

@idrevolution no need to run around like a lunatic man. Veelay just likes to look all sweaty. You can just sit in some location, chill out and destroy everything around you.
