The Consuming Shadow

"Your title, The Consuming Shadow, has been Greenlit!". Thank so much for all the votes. We were Greenlit in just 10 days thanks to you!

Before we launch on Steam, we're going to look into how to add support for trading cards as well as achievements. It's part of the various additions we're considering to make the game more long lasting. We've setup a discussion here as well where you can suggest features to help us do this:

We're still not Greenlit on GoG, so if you feel like voting, you can do so here:

PS: Those of you who bought the game on Humble will be getting a Steam key!

Only a couple more days left to get the Consuming Shadow special bundle for the reduced price! In the meantime, we've released an updated version of the game that fixes a couple of major issues that have been reported by users. Thanks to everyone who took the time to let us know about them.

Fixes for version 1.1:

- Fixed game not deleting save files for some users. This was a rare one that might have been related to players using older or non-English language versions of Windows, in which the game was happy to write save files but not delete them, so whenever you tried to start a new game it'd load the end of the previous one. The game has been reprogrammed to overwrite saves rather than delete them, which should fix the issue.
- Fixed the crash caused by the 'northdoor' variable in dungeons. A lot of people have reported this one, it was caused by a specific random sanity effect trying to activate in a dungeon entrance. All fixed now.
- Fixed town jobs disappearing when a subsequent text message is ignored
- Fixed a rare crash on the encounter screen caused by 'rewitem' variable
- Fixed an error in which equipment quests would show the item being owned when it isn't
- Fixed saving hostages not being acknowledged in the end text of some dungeons
- Fixed being able to interrupt the final ritual by interacting with the rune cluster
- Fixed some typos

Please re-download the game from Humble Store to ensure you have the best possible experience with Consuming Shadow. The version on Mac App store will be updated soon as well.

Just to answer a couple of frequently asked questions, yes, we will be giving out Steam keys to anyone who buys the Humble Store version, when/if we get cleared by Steam Greenlight. And yes, we will be adding Steam achievements at that stage.

On that note, thanks to everyone who's been supporting the game on Steam Greenlight. And it's also been heartening to see the player-created support and resources appear quite unbidden by us, some of which I thought I'd boost a little here, since it's nice to have places to exchange knowledge.

Could use a bit of fleshing out, this one

User Anubisgod6 has been kind enough to create a post for the game on the GoG Wishlist. We didn't even know it was a feature!

Initially, GoG felt the game wasn't good enough because of its visuals. Now that some of you have bought the game via the Humble Store and seen Jim Sterling's video, we hope you enjoy playing The Consuming Shadow. We'd really appreciate it if you would take a second to vote for the game there and show them you're interested!

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that in addition to the Special Edition being available on the Humble Store, we've also just released the game on the Mac App Store!

You can buy the game on or

Please note, this is not the Special Edition. We can't include ebooks on that store. We hope you enjoy the game!

We're live! The Consuming Shadow is now available on the Humble Store. They were kind enough to feature it!

For the next two weeks, you'll be able to buy the Special Edition of the game for 40% off, which includes Yahtzee's two books: Mogworld and Jam.

Also, if the game passes Greenlight, we'll be giving Steam keys to people who bought the game via Humble.
