Lay deadly elemental magic tags upon your enemies.
Citte della Ombre. A city divided by songs and shadows. Only the songs sung of one’s deeds will carry an Ombrian’s legacy beyond death. The Masquerada, aristocrats of the Citte, have hoarded the destructive magic granted by ancient Mascherines to oppress the Contadani, the ones who have nothing. Enter the Mascherines – masks that grant their wielders the power to channel the elements and cast destructive magic. Those who long for more have pushed back, stealing Mascherines for themselves to aid a rebel movement; these men and women have become known by the Citte as Maskrunners. Thus has a grave and prolonged civil war dragged deep scars across Ombre, even as dark mysteries concerning the Mascherines slowly unveil themselves…

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows Review:
Masquerada is a Real Time with Pause RPG that feels more like a JRPG structure. Gameplay is a very linear adventure featuring party-based, tactical combat. It's not the best rendition of this by any stretch, but the combat does its job well enough. Visually the game looks really pretty. The soundtrack is also real good stuff too. Overall the game has a nice atmosphere, filled with color and beauty. The voice-acting in this game is excellent, which helps keep the story moving. If anyone really wants a good story in an RPG, I'd highly recommend this game.
