Now on IndieDB!
Release date: Fall 2016
This world may be unfamiliar to you, for this is a place of peace and tranquility where words are made of music. But that world is above you, hidden from your sights. You are far below, in the murk and shadows where none dare to tread, trapped in a darkness that seeks only to consume you. You are lost. You are alone.

Shadows is a puzzle-based platformer taking place in a mysterious, silhouetted world. Your goal is to construct a beacon of light to call for help and find your way home. Along the way, you will be able to discover pieces of your past, memories lost after your arrival in the caves. Fireflies will be your guiding light; without them you will enter into the darkness of the caves never to return.

Constructing the beacon and finding your way home will not be so simple, however: you'll face jumping puzzles, runic riddles, challenges of darkness, among many others in order to find the parts of the beacon. You will have to seek out what is needed: an orb, a large crystal, a small crystal, the base of the beacon, and a refractor. Along the way, you are also tasked to collect 50 fireflies that will illuminate the orb and give the beacon its light. Fireflies, however, will depart over time and, if you're not careful, you will perish in the darkness.


-Five cave regions (each with a multitude of levels)
-Various puzzles in each region (from runic riddles to navigating darkness)
-Hidden memories that reveal the backstory
-Challenging, spike-filled (and even collapsing) caverns
-Randomized events that add unexpected trials to the gameplay
-Elegant music and graphical design

@KONSTRUCTORS I'm relatively new to Steam Greenlight as well. I think most games have about a 55% upvote percentage over time, but it varies. Right now, Shadows is getting close to that mark. The best advice I can give is to do a lot of marketing; get the word out about your game with new trailers, screenshots, and constant updates via social media.

If you want to talk more about stats specifically, send me an e-mail at and we can discuss this further!

@ThoughtWeaver there definitely will be mobile version! We just wanted to see reaction on Steam first and start with it, while polishing final build and release on mobile.

Not really sure if it's going good. We got ±700 views and ±240 upvotes after 3 days, is it good stats for puzzle here? Would really love to hear some thoughts.
