Visual novels are so popular these days. Gilded Shadows is one of them! However, with its unique storyline, which is set in a solarpunk and cyberpunk universe, it seems one step further from its rivals on the market. The game offers you the chance to discover one of the six love interests in a stand-alone adventure story and at least three different endings. If you are looking for a great visual novel with different endings and a long gameplay time, you should take a look at The Gilded Shadows.
Gilded Shadows Story
Gilded Shadows is set on a planet called Arcalis. This planet has a complex history because when the human race arrived on this planet, it was abandoned. When humans found Arcalis, the only remnants were massive bio-domes. These bio-domes were designed to protect humans from hostile climates.
While half of the planet is bathed by the sun in an endless day, the other half is cloaked in a frigid night. Life is not easy on both sides of this planet. People live under these bio-domes to protect themselves from the scorching winds and storms.
You will join the unique adventure of a young woman, Morgan Leone. Everyone is looking for her on this creepy planet, so she has to choose her allies carefully. In the end, Morgan will learn that those who can’t adapt to this planet, where endless day and night divide it, can’t survive.
