Gameplay of Shadow of Naught:

The game offers you a brand-new storytelling experience. The parts of the story are shown in stylish interactive posters which allows you play the game, find your way, involve yourself in the lives of the characters, and solve puzzles of them. You will learn more about your options or just get to the end by your decisions.

There are a lot of typos on the game. E.g. It says we can play 3 levels for free at the start but we can play only 2. This set me off but the play store description already states that we can play only 2 levels for free. But considering that the game is still being polished and is still under development to create a final build, I must say, the art style and the narrative are very good.
