Scott, Matt, Chris and Kelly are four normal high school students. A mysterious murder house lies north of the school. The history of the house makes the students curious to explore what happened. Why did a family suddenly end up dead? why was there no evidence or clues? Could it have been some kind of ghost? Shadows is an indie first person survival horror game based on the Unreal 4 Engine.

As you all know I have been slowly working on this game since about 2011 and in late 2014 I decided that the game needed to be prioritized, I have since become preoccupied with University but still work on the game.

Now I have not had much time to post any updates or information but I have managed to create the shiny new official page. I will keep this ModDB page up for reference until around June of this year. Unfortunately we have had to rename the mod as Shadows is already a standalone game, but the name Shadowed Nightmare will only stick around until I am entirely happy that the game is ready for a release.

On another note, I'd like to thank all of you. Especially the ones of you who have been around supporting the mod from the beginning. Most of you have seen many test videos and photos with the Source engine and some very early stage photos with the Unreal Engine. Now that we have moved over to the Unreal 4 Engine I hope that you will see some final production images and videos. We will also be be bringing back the original city from the Half-Life 2 mod that BearHamster proudly showed off.

On a personal note, I apologize for all the StrawPoll poll's I've clogged the page up with and now that I have collected all the information I will not be posting anymore links.

If you would like to assist in working on the game I could use some help. I will be placing a job add up soon or you can just private message me!

The New Page!

Sorry about all the polls, I just need to make sure that we are 100% set before I get back to my office on Saturday. This will be the final poll.

Some Questions I can answer for you

How much will I need to Donate?
Donation is volunteer but if you do feel like donating towards the Unreal 4 development, you can donate from $1 up. Your Choice!

What is the difference between Unreal 3 and Unreal 4?
Unreal 4 is much easier for us to use and will offer you a higher quality finalized product.

Will the game cost?
With the release of an Unreal 4 and Steam Greenlight Edition we are hoping to offer it to you for $5, we can not be sure of the price as it is to early to tell.

As it is only me working on this game for now and as I am currently on Holiday, I have decided that I will be moving it over to Unreal 3. It will still have the exact same feel as it did on the Source engine.

I know this makes the past 3 news updates as well as the vote useless and for that I am deeply sorry. I just don't have the time to configure Source 2013.

I am not posting this as a news update as I may not have any access to the internet for a week or so and I would like you all to see this.

I will be returning to work on the game in 3 weeks. The plan is not to recycle the Oni story but to expand upon it. Adding a background to the characters and more areas to the game.

Before you ask, yes it will still be 100% free forever.

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them. You are more than welcome to post them here and I will answer them one at a time, or you can private message them to me.

Thank you all for your time, I appologise for all of the delays and I hope to get the game to you before mid 2015.

What do you mean? We are not 100% sure if we will be moving over to the Unreal engine. If we do hopefully it will be free. I know the main game will be free and working with the Unreal Engine will make the puzzles easier to create compared to the Source engine.

Yes, the game is still going to be based on the original RPG Maker game Ao Oni. We had changed the name around 4 months ago aswell.
