Masks, Music and Magic

In our tactical action RPG, Masquerada, you’ll follow the story of Cicero Gavar, a detective haunted by his role in war crimes against the city of Ombre, where legacies live on in songs. Against his better judgment, Cicero is summoned from exile to dive deep into a civil war fought with destructive magic, all to unearth the whereabouts of a missing politician. Navigate the deceptions of the city’s power-hungry guildsmen and unmask the truth within the shadows of Ombre.

A Fully Voiced Adventure

The voices of Felicia Day (The Guild), Matthew Mercer (McCree, Overwatch), Jennifer Hale (Commander Shepard, Mass Effect), Dave Fennoy (Lee, Telltale's The Walking Dead) and many more heavyweight talents will grace the narrative of Masquerada!




Choose Your Own Pace

Inspired by superlative RPGs like Baldur’s Gate, Dragon Age and Transistor, you can tackle battles at your own pace with pauseable real-time combat, and unleash powerful magic upon your foes with the help of mysterious ancient masks. 


The Magic of Tactics

Cicero and his companions wield a variety of spells that can directly influence enemy movement and positioning. The party can even "tag" opponents with particular combinations of elemental magic to create element-based status effects, like blinding smog or earthen mud that paralyzes foes.

A Visual Symphony

Experience a gorgeous wellspring of colours, 2D linework and 3D character animation as you explore the city of Ombre. Every nook and cranny is styled with the hallmarks of French comic book artists like Moebius.
