‘Trulon: The Shadow Engine’ brings a unique fantasy experience to Steam

trulon_logoHeadup Games announces a new partnership with Lillbacka Powerco Oy and Kyy Games for the imminent Steam release of ‘Trulon: The Shadow Engine’. The unique RPG is based in the beautiful steampunk fantasy world of Trulon, inspired by the novel from the game’s author Johan Lillbacka and award winning American writer Jak Koke, who is already known from the best – selling Shadowrun trilogy, The Dragon Heart Saga. To feature a great variety in its battles and deepen the strategy, ‘Trulon: The Shadow Engine’ comes with a unique card combat system that combines traditional deck management with random elements.
The tactics are intuitively activated using over 50 cards in an easy to play way that make both RPG veterans and new players feel immediately at home.
‘Trulon:  The  Shadow  Engine’  features  a deep  story  due  to  multi-faceted  characters instead of good and evil separation like in many other RPGs. The players will control four different characters,  led  by  the  enchanting  Gladia. They  team up  to  adventure  through the  Trulon  Universe  where a  mysterious  disease  has spread through  the  kingdoms  of Tripudia and Maelon. Using magical tactics, they try to survive the action packed battles against many different monsters and exciting steampunk machines. First sketches of the game world already showed up in 2007, before Johan Lillbacka got in touch with Jak Koke for writing a novel placed in the  Trulon  universe. That  novel, ‘Shadow  Gears’, will be released in 2016 as well. After the universe was set, Johan developed the stories of different characters for his game. He always loved sci-fi and fantasy, so the result was a beautiful  setting  featuring  a  mix  of  steampunk  and  JRPG, with fantastic machines that run on magical energy. To let  the players enjoy  the atmospheric music  of  the  game, the soundtrack will be included as a free download as well.
