Bright Shadow

Trading card MMO gets a second chance.

Trading card MMORPG Bright Shadow is getting a second chance through Gamania’s beanfun! platform. Originally released in 2009, the game was shut down by former publisher Gamepot USA (which also shut down Fantasy Earth Zero back in March) last October for reasons I can only speculate. Now Bright Shadow is back in the hands of developer Gamania, and making a comeback starting with a closed beta tomorrow.
