The Gamers: The Shadow Menace

Fifteen years after stumbling into our world from the fantasy land of Fartherall, Newmoon, Nimble, Magellan, and Rogar have struggled to adapt to modern life. Guided by the mysterious Professor, a new group of gamers takes control of their destiny and leads them on a new quest to find a portal to return home and defeat their nemesis, The Shadow, once and for all.

The latest entry in the long-running independent franchise The Gamers brings back the characters from the original 2002 film that started it all. This time new players take control for lots of classic tabletop gaming action, with a real-world heist twist.
