Kalypso Media Teaser Asks You to Prepare for the Awakening

By Kelly Packard, 4 months ago
What better way to generate interest in your game than to release a teaser trailer with a catchy slogan? Kalypso Media has done just that with their new teaser trailer that asks players to "prepare for the awakening." The trailer shows "in-engine pre-alpha footage" and is dated for 2018.


The YouTube video description tells players of an ancient proverb that warns to "never trust a demon, for betrayal is their very blood." The statement is cited as a quote from Carissa Cantrecht. A quick Google search turns up the existence of Carissa Cantrecht as a character in Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, a PC RPG developed by Kalypso. On Kalypso's Facebook page, where the teaser was posted, they claim "Something stirs in the shadows…" A mention of "shadows," along with one of the game's characters, certainly would make it look like a sequel to Shadows.

Whatever it is, it will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC, as stated at the end of the teaser. Kalypso requests that players stay tuned for the full reveal, which should be coming soon.
