A downloadable game for Windows

Birthplace is a point-and-click survival game about a young man on a quest to learn about and track down his missing father.

Welcome to Shadetown!

The first stop on Dan's journey: Shadetown, is populated by eccentric robed figures called "Shades". A shade's enchanted robe obscures their voice, height, face, and gender, allowing them to live anonymously.

Is this truly a Utopian society where your identity is represented by your actions, or an unsustainable cult of hedonists and cowards?

Set the mood:

Planned Features:
