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.

I apologies for the 3 1/2 year wait for this project. As most of you have seen, we have gone on hiatus about 4 times and changed between the Source, Cry and Unreal engine to many times to count.

On that note, we will be changing and sticking to the Unreal engine. This is due to problems with the Source engine that I had explained as a comment. I sincerely apologies for this change but fortunately it will be the final change along with a planned release of mid to late 2015.

I am also happy to announce that the game will feature a full storyline entirely separate from the original RPGMaker game. The Oni and world around the characters will be changed completely. I will soon be looking for people to assist work on the game.
 In about 3 - 4 weeks I will be uploading some photos of the first area we will be developing and a roadmap for the development process.

I hope that you are excited because we are 100% dedicated to the release of this game and can't wait to see your reactions. I do understand if some of you are angry at the constant changes and the waste of time with the Poll we sent out earlier this year.

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them. Ask them here or Private Message me I may not be very active over the next 3 weeks but I will answer your questions whenever possible.

Thank you for your time

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.
