Masquerada: Songs and Shadows Out This August
Matt Mercer, the voice actor for Cicero Gavar, had this to say:
Masquerada was an incredible experience for me. As a lover of storytelling and character development, the incredible writing of the game drew me in immediately. Now mix this grand tale with my love of Isometric RPGs of yore, and I’m sold on multiple levels. I’m not just a cast member of the project, but a dedicated fan.
For its PS4 release, the game will now include a New Game+ mode. For this, players will get to experience new scenes and extended dialogue in existing scenes, as well as new fights and other changes to the main character’s skills.
Set in a city-state whose people don’t believe in an afterlife and where only the rich and powerful are granted the privilege of being remembered after their passing, the world of Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is one with rich lore and world building, bright, hand-painted environments, and a thoughtful story that explores how societies deal with love, life, power and death.
It’s been five years since Gavar was exiled. Allowed to return home in exchange for investigating the disappearance of an old friend who has been researching the Mascherines, magical masks that grant extraordinary powers, Cicero’s journey will force him to navigate through a civil war and a mystical, ancient history full of intrigue and tragedy.
