Welcome to
Legacy of the Shards!

‘Legacy of the Shards’ is the brainchild of Andrea Wozniak and Chris Hamer. Originally developed as a 3D platformer prototype for the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) Game Developers Club, the project concept soon evolved into an adventure game. Set in a fantastical world filled with exploration, the player assumes the role of Aren, an adventurous youth seeking the means to travel beyond his home to find his long-lost parents. The game mechanics focus on classic platforming to explore and pursue nonlinear objectives. Players can approach quests and goals from several angles, building their own playstyle as they progress. In July of 2016, we presented ‘Legacy of the Shards’ at Baltimore’s annual Gamescape convention. Inspired by the enthusiasm and curiosity of players, the team strove forward with development. Today, we are proud to announce the success of our presentation at MAGFEST. Stay tuned for more to come!
