Indie Wonderland: The Shrouded Isle

In the closing weeks of 2017, which at time of writing are about fourteen years ago, I made the mistake of not remembering the name of Kitfox GamesThe Shrouded Isle. I found it by Googling the phrase ‘that green game about sacrificing cultists’, and then made the mistake of tweeting about it.

Which Kitfox Games then saw.

That I was going to review The Shrouded Isle to make up for this terrible oversight was obviously a given. The only question remains: Am I going to repair my reputation by praising in gameplay what I couldn’t remember in the name? Or am I going to pile-drive my remaining Kitfox Games Reputation straight into the depths of the earth?

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, medium. Mechanical, high-ish.)

(Game source: Bought it myself, for penitence reasons.)

After the break: The Shrouded Isle, which I still don’t really know anything about. Sacrifices feature, apparently.
