About

Craft an impenetrable Labyrinth, raid your rivals, and utilize a wide array of powerful heroes to become the greatest force in Shadow Guard!

  • Design your own Labyrinth Dungeon.
  • Raid other Players and Campaign Villains.
  • Recruit, train, and equip diverse, powerful Heroes.
  • Join with other Players to create formidable Factions.

A new twist on multiplayer RPGs.  Experience and control both sides of the action by designing your own labyrinth dungeon and raiding other player Labyrinths from around the world.  Join up with friends to form powerful factions where you can share land, guards, funds, and strategy.

Guided by the wise Vera, meet all-important characters in Shadow Guard and begin your adventure as Aiden and Emma. Grow your hero party with over a dozen powerful heroes and exact revenge on the Warlords that have thrust Shadow Guard in to chaos!

Recruit many diverse and powerful heroes with four main class types:

  • Strong Paladins to help absorb damage and defend party members.
  • Elusive Rogues to deal critical physical damage and avoid attacks.
  • Priests to heal party members and thwart opposing magic attacks.
  • Powerful Mages to deal heavy magical damage to entire enemy groups.

Protect your precious resources from other players with creative wall placement, strategic guard selection, deadly traps, and more!

Navigate deadly 3D labyrinth dungeons from a first person point of view. Use tools like your map and wall paint to help aid your direction, and prepare to battle guards in classic turn-based combat.

Collect, craft, and equip your heroes with over 400 powerful weapons, armors, and usable items. 

Collaborate with other players to create powerful Factions. Share the toughest guards, fund common goals, grow your territory, share strategy, and solidify your group as the ultimate power in Shadow Guard!

Want to design your labyrinth and challenge a friend from your PC then hop on the couch and raid them on your iPad? You can.

Heroes of Shadow Guard is a true multi-platform game. We’ve designed our servers to support multiple devices and platforms for the same player account. Players can enjoy HoSG on a single device or mix it up to play between devices and platforms. We have confirmed compatibility for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android; and we are awaiting testing / approval for Windows Mobile, Sony, Xbox, and others!
