First look: Shaman

The studio that created Darkened Skye is working on an action adventure game with a Native American theme.


Boston Animation, the Massachusetts-based game development studio that created Simon & Schuster's Darkened Skye, has begun development of Shaman, a new action adventure game with a Native American theme. The game is set hundreds of years ago in the American Southwest. Players will assume the role of a young hunter who must fight a horrible evil that has been unleashed on the land. In order to defeat this evil, the hunter must learn magic by completing a series of puzzle sequences inspired by Native American lore.

Shaman will feature a variety of 3D wilderness environments based on places that are sacred in Native American culture. In addition, the game will include Native flute and drum music and an overall design that draws from Native American designs and motifs.

We've posted some concept art from the game in the gallery above. Boston Animation is currently seeking a publishing partner for the game. For more information, visit the developer's Web site.
