Crimson Shroud puts you in control of Giauque, a "Chaser" who hunts goods and people professionally. Its tabletop RPG format allows for real-time dice rolls, and high-value bonus dice can be earned by chaining skills together. The music of Crimson Shroud is by Hitoshi Sakimoto, who has composed for numerous games spanning decades. Some of his contributions include composition for Radiant Silvergun, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and Valkyria Chronicles, among many others.
