Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of, when computer games lacked graphics and were made purely of text! Some proud gamers equate these barbaric adventures to primitive cave drawings, but these primordial works of art were the first stepping stones that led to the RPGs we know and love today. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!
Makkana, stranger. I am the Kung Fu Space Barbarian. I make Crypt Shyfter, a series of badass single player text adventure games filled with swordfights, pizza, and evil Shyfters!
Oh, and did I mention the games are all completely free to play on Newgrounds?
If you feel a primal urge (a yearning, or perhaps a calling) to go on epic quests, battle evil, and become a legendary hero, then take my beefy barbarian hand and come with me! I will show you worlds of wonder and visions of glory.
You can play Crypt Shyfter on your computer, tablet, phone, or any other device with access to the internet. The adventures are made with a simple program called Twine. Each game is nothing more than a series of webpages, so the games load quickly on any device.
But don’t mistake simple for boring! These adventures are filled with swashbuckling action, daring rescues, heroic adventures, and sweeping romance!
In Crypt Shyfter, YOU are the hero who saves the day. You make all the choices and decide your own fate.
Once you’re done playing though all of the current adventures, make sure you stick around! New games are posted every month, but the real fun comes from getting involved yourself! Send me your fan art, fan fiction, Twine games, gameplay videos, and anything else you create in the Crypt Shyfter universe and I’ll share it right here.
We’ve got an amazing tribe of creators on Discord creating new projects, expanding world lore, and sharing works in progress. Don’t be shy- come join the fun!
