A downloadable demo

Where Shadows Slumber is a brooding puzzle game that takes place in a shadowy, abandoned world. You will aid the main character in his search for redemption - a search that spans numerous worlds and introduces you to a cast of mysterious figures. Who rules this forgotten land? And who will be left once the adventure draws to its inevitable conclusion?

The only tool at your disposal - besides your intellect - is the chaotic nature of the universe. Anything that is not touched by light has the freedom to change. This governing principle will be your guide in the darkness, but also your undoing. After all, if you are not touched by the light, you have the freedom to change as well. What will you become?

This app is a short demonstration of the full game's stunning worlds, mind-bending mechanics, and haunting story. The full game will be released at a later date, to be determined.

How to get the demo

The game is only available by direct download from your preferred mobile app marketplace: the App Store or Google Play. The game cannot be downloaded from itch.io as it is a mobile title. Thank you for understanding!

The demo currently contains seven surreal levels.

How to play

Where Shadows Slumber is a tap-to-move puzzle adventure game for mobile devices. Tap a space on the screen, and your character will walk there. Your character holds a lantern that is always casting a bright light - pay attention to the shadows it casts, because they are magic! If a shadow passes over an object, it may change in an unpredictable way. Use this to solve each puzzle and get to the door at the top of the screen.
