The Shrouded Isle is an adventure and civilisation game with a unique and rather interesting twist. Players take on the role of the high priest of a village on a remote and rather gloomy island where people have to be sacrificed each season for the overall good of the community.
Managing Your Own Cult
Players of The Shrouded Isle have to use their powers of negotiation and reasoning to figure out who should be sacrificed next. Because the community is so small, each family has strong reasons why one of their relatives should not be the next to die. A lot of thought and work has gone into creating strong characters and gripping narrative. However, this often leaves gamers with very little to do in the game except for put the mouse and click on different elements and then sit back and watch as the drama unfolds, although exploring the island and getting to know the cult can be interesting.
The Perfect Sacrifice
People who have enjoyed playing the game The Sacrifice are likely to have a lot of fun with The Shrouded Isle, as this was the original free game that this offering is based on. while it is possible to complete the game in as little as three hours and many of the tasks feel rather easy and basic, it provides a fresh challenge complete with a gripping and detailed narrative.
