A downloadable game for Windows

UPDATE 2020-03-09

We are working on a "Legendary Edition" demake to celebrate the Mass Effect Trilogy remaster. This new version will "remaster" the graphics in an older pixel style to more accurately reflect classic LuicasArts games and will include some if not all of the following features (and more) -

+ Full voice acting!
+ New puzzles and dialog!
+ More Paragon and Renegade choices!
+ The ability to play as Fem-Shep or M-Shep!
+ All new art and animations!
+ Translations into other languages! (hopefully Russian and German at least)
+ And more!

Coming in 2021!


While Mass Effect Andromeda won't see his return, Commander Shepard still has one more adventure in him!

A fan project driven by a passion for classic point and click adventure games and more importantly the Mass Effect series; The Adventures of Commander Shepard is a fan-fiction "demake" and love letter to both.

Driven by our intense love for Mass Effect and our inability to let it go after Mass Effect 3 (as also evident in our website Mass Effect Indoctrination), this project first began as an animated satire but soon grew into a full point and click adventure game. There is so much about Mass Effect that lends itself perfectly to the classic point and click genre, and we felt that trying to bring in some of the old LucasArts humour while poking fun at some of the tropes of the modern RPG was something that really helped blend the two together in a fun way that made our little fan-fiction "demake" the perfect homage to both. We hope you enjoy playing through this passion project as much as we enjoyed creating it.


  • Over 1 hour of classic point and click gameplay
  • Animated intro
  • Built in hint system
  • Multiple animated endings
  • Paragon or Renegade choices!

Is there a link to the LE demake?


I just discovered this. Will definitely keep an eye out for the LE demake update.

About to play the original version for the first time. I am SO looking forward to this. :) Any updates on the upcoming Legendary Edition?

Hi! Did you enjoy?! Life got int he way of the LE, but I still intend to complete one day!

I loved it. You had me at the menu song. XD I definitely understand about life getting in the way but I look forward to whenever you are able to complete the LE. And I'm sure I'm not the only one! Good luck! (And if you need any help with the writing side of things, I'd be happy to offer up some help anytime--depending on my schedule, of course. :) )

Thank you for the kind words. Have you written comedy leaning work before? How did you hear about the game? Have you seen the LE preview art? I actually got a lot done on the game, mainly needed to do the new pixel art NPC's and animation.


I haven't written an actual comedy before (unless you count my old fanfics, which are hilariously bad :P) but I do usually balance out my darker scenes with lighthearted ones and a touch of humor.

I heard about the game because I finished the trilogy (and Andromeda) and was basically in withdrawal, haha. I figured ME has such a following that surely SOMEONE had made a fan game... and a Google search brought this up pretty quick. :) The new LE art looks great!

I ask because I have been looking for someone to collaborate with on my new game. I would have to read your work to see if we would gel. Anyway you inspired me to post a video preview of the LE. Let me know what you think -

Будет ли поддержка ОС Linux?
Will there Linux OS support?

We are currently planning a Linux and Mac version :)


My name is NaeemTHM and this is my favorite parody game on the Citadel


I love Mass Effect, you guys did a great job :)

Thanks for the kind words! Glad you enjoyed :)

What version of Windows do you have? You can try downloading this dll and copying it to the same folder as the executable - https://www.dropbox.com/s/zvawcumonf24ts0/msvcr110.dll?dl=0

Let me know if it works. And I hope you enjoy the game!


Hi! I've just downloaded the game but while trying to run the shortcut or the exe file, I always get the same error message. MSVCR110.dll not found :/ Any help, please? This seems like a fun game.
