The Difference With Shadow of the Colossus

Shadow of the Colossus vs. Voodoo

Since we launched our Kickstarter campaign, a lot of people have asked us what the difference is between Shadow of the Colossus and Voodoo. We just wanted to share a quick article to answer that.

Shadow of the Colossus vs. Voodoo

(1) Single Player vs. Multiplayer: Shadow of the Colossus is characterized by a slightly eerie solo journey. Voodoo on the other hand is completely a multiplayer game. You can say that Shadow of the Colossus and Voodoo are polar opposites in this regard. We thought it would be a fun gameplay alternative to be able to battle the huge colossi in multiplayer, coordinating with your team like a hunting party. Communication and team effort are a huge part of overcoming obstacles and challenges in Voodoo.

(2) Open-world freedom: In Shadow of the Colossus, after defeating a colossus, the player is returned to the central point to repeat the process — that is, find another colossus. In Voodoo, there is much more freedom in exploring the landscape. Bumping into an Izimu might in fact be totally coincidental. And accidental!

.

(3) Player versus Environment: Shadow of the Colossus set out to have no enemies except the epic battles against the colossi. In Voodoo‘s plan, there will be wild animals to defend against as well as hunting, food gathering, and resource gathering.

In a nutshell, Shadow of the Colossus is a game that takes you on a personal challenge. We drew some inspiration from this amazing game. But Voodoo is ultimately about a collaborative challenge and survival as a team (or rather, a tribe). Of course, it takes place in a completely different cultural backdrop and with different objectives too.

We hope this clarifies some of the key differences between Voodoo and Shadow of the Colossus. If you’ve backed our Kickstarter campaign and already have pre-alpha access to Voodoo, maybe there are some other differences that you’ve noticed. Please share this with us (and anybody else who asks)!
