Inspired by classic JRPGs, Shadows of Adam boasts improved Linux and Steam Deck support


Shadows of Adam is a retro JRPG-inspired game from Something Classic Games that was released in 2017 and a small update came recently to improve it on Linux and Steam Deck.

The patch was small, just improving support for it to run on Linux distributions with kernel 5.x and above (the Steam Deck is kernel 5.13). So maybe it’s not a mind-blowing change, but it’s fantastic to see developers of all sizes keeping their games well-maintained. Also a great excuse to spotlight another indie gem!

Game Features:

  • Captivating character-driven story: The story of Shadows of Adam is one with a deep narrative and an interesting plot. The story revolves around 4 main characters: Asrael, Kellan, Curtis and Talon.
  • A strategic combat access point management system: AP is automatically restored between each battle round and by defeating enemies. This allows for a unique attrition system that encourages skill use and quick combat.
  • Beautiful visuals: Shadows of Adam features beautifully modernized visuals inspired by classic SNES-era JRPGs.
  • Soundtrack with over 44 tracks: An original soundtrack by Tyler Mire inspired by the music of the greatest games of the genre. This soundtrack includes unique themes for each area and character and emphasizes strong melody and emotional connection.

Available for purchase on Humble Store and Steam.
