Mysteries of Shaola: The Cave is a role-playing game that brings the mystery and horror elements to the fantasy genre. Fight through Kazen Kingdom and uncover the truth of the mysterious cave, discover dirty secrets, build your legend and ultimately confront the evil force in this new chronicle of Shaola.

It looks like any common cave—just a rocky cave, silently sitting alone in the cold wilderness.

Even on the brightest day, the cave's entrance remains dark, as if concealing thousands of secrets. 

No one knows what it's like inside the cave, because no one has ever come out of it, as if they have vanished into thin air.  

There have been many brave men who couldn't resist their curiosity, infiltrated the cave to discover the secrets inside. None have come back.

Darkness descends over Kazen. Wars, conspiracies, mysterious abductions are overshadowing the kingdom.

The Rose family have spent a year running for their lives, desperately trying to escape the manhunt from warlords and powerful factions, after failing to convince people that they don't have that valuable thing people have been searching for. No one believes them.  

They have gone deep into deserts, jungles, islands, but no matter where they went, no matter how hard they tried, they couldn't escape, they have reached dead end.  

The cave! The scariest place in the world, reluctantly has become their only option, as no one would dare come near it!  

However, when they finally reached the area, the enemies came at full force. Richard Rose and his beloved wife sacrificed themselves in battle so their two children can escape.  

Denzel, badly wounded, and his little sister, Helen, finally reached the entrance, trying to swallow their tears, pondering whether to enter the cave…

The enemies balance could be better, but everything else about this game is really great especially the story and characters dialogues. Might be worth it to just play on Easy mode and just enjoy the presentation, that's where this game really shines.

Hi Oshino, each purchase comes with a portable, DRM-free version where you can launch the game on any PC,  also included a Steam key if you'd like to play on its platform. Steam keys, however, only come with each purchase, not giveaway. Hope this helps. :)

I really like this game, its a nice game to play if you want some medieval style RPG to relax with and a little adventuring to go with it. This game is dialogue focused so you want to make sure you are interested in paying attention to a story, but it's pretty well done for what is clearly a small team given the price of the game.

I look forward to their next project release.


Glad you enjoy the game. Thanks.
