Shadow Tower Abyss is the sequel to the Playstation exclusive, Shadow Tower, developed by From Software. It is a first-person dungeon crawler in the vein of From Software's King's Field series, but with notable thematic and gameplay differences. The art design evokes a darker, more surreal atmosphere akin to the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and other Japanese horror games like Silent Hill. The character levels up by collecting enemies' souls, which, along with the bizarre enemy design and high difficulty, has led some players to speculate that the Shadow Tower games are informal prequels to the Souls series (Demon's Souls, Dark Souls I & II).
Shadow Tower Abyss was slated for a North American release, but was canned by Sony due to poor reception of the first Shadow Tower game.
