Outstanding little game, with such great graphics and facial expressions and the music was excellently done! Cant wait to go and record episode two and see the other side of this journey from the other characters eyes. Amazing 4 days work!

I will give as many thumbs up as I'm allowed for this game.
The story is captivating and the art is really good. And, holy sh1t, guys, you made this in 4 days??? That's really awesome!
Pure art! You did an absolutely wonderful job on this Lox. I loved
every second, I got one ending and plan to make a video on at least
another ending :)
Just getting into this. I really love the art style! it's the little things too like the rolling down of the power window that's amazing!
This vn is simply alluring and captivating. The best part of the journey is not what will become at the end, but how they become through it :')
and yeah, you just heard million pieces of my heart shattered every time I read it.
I truly enjoyed this experience. The visual presentation is excellent and music selection is great (especially the mariachi haha). The story is solid, I've only experienced the game from Shelby's point of view but I am curious to see how Dustin's plays out.
It's an interesting setting for a visual novel, but given the characters and the scenario, it works splendidly!
The game does a good job at playing with the heart strings, as many others have noted.
It's an excellent visual novel that demands your attention, you should definitely play this game.
I also recorded a let's play of the game, if you don't mind.
Cheers and best wishes.
Never has a game made me cry and feel such intense emotions. Great job guys. I played Dustin then Shelby, think this is the way everyone should play. I can relate with both of them so much.

I'm mad at the endings... You guys played with my heart and I'm crying. Good Job, damn it. Damn it all to hell...
I made a gameplay of your work!
I enjoyed everything about it. Show me some love. ;)
I absolutely loved this.
I really liked this game. I read through the comments about the girl's pov (which is who I played) and how the guy's is really good so I'm thinking of doing another recording of his side. Thanks for making this game!
I finally had a chance to record and upload a playthrough of this game, and I had a good time doing it! I could feel the tension in the air, and can't wait to see things from the other character's point of view; especially now knowing that there is more than one ending. Great job! I hope to see more from you guys! Thank you! :)
Some one down in the comments mentioned that they didn't really get much from the girl's pov, and I have to agree. "Dustin's" pov gave me chills and honeslty left me hanging there. This game is really beautiful.
doesn't work on OSX 10.12.4
I didn't have much reaction when playing the girl, but when playing as the guy..... LOVE THIS GAME
My god this gameis incredible despite it's size. It made me all teary eyed :')
Split this one into parts because honestly It deserves to be a two part series.
Honestly, I love this game. I've played it to the end and loved every minute of it. The story ended where it should end and not to any length that a normal apocalyptic horror game would. The fact that you could personalize the characters names also played a good part in the story too to drag you into the story even more than the dialogue.
It's perfect in it's own morbid, cheesy way. And boy, do I love Cheese.
Damn, this hit right home! Loved it, so simple yet so good.
Really enjoyed it! You had me at the end there :3
There is a Russian translation, my friend did )
Interesting! Do you have a link to it?
Beautiful! You cant leave me hanging like that....!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. Didn't read the above blurb before playing, so on the first time through it was a great shock to the system!
That was touching. You really feel like your right there at the end of the world. Everything felt so real. Keep up the god work and never give up on this. Because its not justa game on the computer. Its somthing that you made it is now apart of you. Keep it up cant wait for the rest.
That was SO GOOD! Oh man I loved that, there was so much feeling and emotion and atmosphere in that tiny little game. I want to know more, I want to know where he really came from, where they're going, if they lasted! Oh man. I loved that.
Nice work! Though, we're still craving the back-story of the apocalypse's last radio DJ. :P
We only played one route: the female's positive(?) ending. It was a casual, sweet story; so we recommended it to our young audience. Hope y'all keep collaborating to make new story-driven games like this one.

This game is wonderful! It has a great emotional narrative that perfectly matches the setting the game takes place in. The soundtrack is fitting with an ambient type of sound. The instruments consists of an acoustic guitar and piano. There are two story lines in the game which both come from the view of the guy and the girl. I really enjoyed playing this game and highly recommend you play it for yourself.
I made a video of me playing the game so here's the link to it:
Excuse me, I wanted to play the game since it has very good reviews, and it looks amazing. I tried downloading it with the downloads given that included apple (since I have an OS X.) but it said that this game was only for windows? Can someone help me?
the game says its for OS X but i'm pretty sure the download is a .exe only and .exe is exclusive to windows users so unfortunatly the game is not yet avaliable they may be working on it though
I haven't tried booting it up on my MacBook, but once you've unzipped it to your local drive, you should be able to play the game by clicking the Shadows.app bundle instead of the Shadows.exe Windows executable.
First game I've ever paid for on itch.io and for good reason, too.
I really loved it. Short, but packed with emotion and feeling. It felt very human to me, like how I would feel on the run from zombies. The dialogue was good, the music and sound effects were spot on. Well done! The only downside was that the endings left me wanting more!
Video: Shelby's Route
Really well done! I'm impressed by what was accomplished in just four days! The art is very nice and polished, the use of colors looked very pretty, the music works well and timed nicely, and the characters dialogue was well written. I liked doing the voices for them and learning about them. I look forward to your future games!
(Is there any chance for a follow up story featuring them?)
Is there a spoiler free guide for this game? I'm doing a let's play on this game but keep getting the same ending for Shelby's route.
