Hello! I wonder how to contact developer by email? :)

A very emotional game, and it made me think a lot. I love this game. It seems so human, and not cinematic like normal "Zombie Apocalypse" games/movies.

I saw jacksepticeye play this... AND IT WAS AMAZING, I WANTED TO PLAY IT FOR MYSELF!

This is absolutely amazing! I just wish it was longer... maybe a sequel??

lol, I almost cried. It was so sad at times. I loved it 100 percent of it though. My favorite part, though? Their reactions to the music. 10/10 would play again.

such a good one, just a as we like them . a bit short but really effective

An absolutely beautiful game! I have to say it is a sensory overload to my eyes and ears, which is a good thing! :P I LOVED the music and the art, I can't express that more! It brought back memories of my childhood as well, weird I know.. But have a look at my let's play and you shall see why! :)

This is a really nice and creative little game. The art style is cool, the music is calm and weird but works for the story, and the writing is all well done. I have to say I didn't really expect the games story to go where it actually did. At first I was expecting the two to simply be traveling cross country together. But when what really happened comes about, it honestly makes the game make that much more sense. I also like how there are more than one ending to the story based on how you respond and who you play as throughout the game. All in all an awesome little visual novel with a close to home feel. I did a video on my experience with Shelby's story if anyone is interested. I definitely plan on going back and playing through Dustin's side and seeing how it differs from Shelby's.

I've only played half of this game so far, but it's absolutely wonderful! You are an amazing storyteller and I'd love to see more from you. :D

I watched @Mithzan playthis game and I feel in love with it immediately! I really want to play this game (i only have a chrome computer) and would love to see the endings to this. This game is the best roleplay?novel game I've ever seen (besides Undertale to). This game looks Astounding! I'd love to play this game \(>ᗜ>)/

The Shadows That Run Alongside The Car is a Visual Novel about two apocalypse survivors trying to find a safe haven. I'd say it's more about the journey than the destination it's really curious. Here's my impression of the game: https://youtu.be/HlGsv-udvyE

Honestly...I went into this not expecting much and giving up right away but I got hooked instantly! Very nicely done! I can't wait to finish up all the endings.

Again, I really enjoyed the game. Did the Shelby route, and gained more insight on the character.The story is so gently depressing, yet hopeful in the face of oblivion. Great job again!

I loved this game so much, I fell in love with the characters and the art style and just everything about it! You can watch me play it here if you want to >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHMq7vvWRL0&list=PLa3q6V6i4ONYEBgX6JKhA0jJKz8tnkIOD

I love this. The concept is so simple but so complex. It's two strangers in the apocalypse talking in a car, but it's so much more than that. While I do wish it was longer, I love the endings as they are very open-ended and let the reader decide what happened after the ending. It interacts with the audience by not giving them a solid finale, and I say kudos for that. To create such a powerful game in only four days? Incredible. Words can't describe what I'm feeling right now.

Job well done. Highly anticipating your next game, if you are going to make another. :~)

umm how do i download this on windows cause it dosen't let me for some weird reason

Hi, we're going to need a bit more detail than that to solve your problem, but do check your antivirus software to make sure it's not flagging the game as harmful and blocking it. I know Avast, for example, likes to do that with Ren'Py games, unfortunately...

Hi! I was just wondering how to open this on mac? It just downloads a zip file, and I may be being dumb about this, but it just looks so good and I have no idea how to play it, thank you!

After you download the .zip file, simply extract it somewhere. Inside the folder (which should be called Shadows-1.0-all) there will be various files that allow you to run the game regardless of whether you're on Mac, Windows, or Linux. If you're on Windows, double click Shadows.exe. On Mac, it's Shadows.app, etc etc.

Thank you so much! x

There doesn't seem to be a Shadows.app when I download and extract the zip file, only a Shadows.exe :( Any suggestions?

The .app extension probably won't be there when you're looking at the folder on a Mac, so look for the file simply called "Shadows" that has the special game icon.

Oh I figured it out! Thanks so much it's a great game!

Just wanna say: I really liked the game, you can really tell it was made with love :) The characters feel soo relatable in a way, it's awesome :)

I wanted to ask? What was this made on?

If you mean the game engine, we used Ren'Py!

ok thanks :3

I love the music, if you composed it, could you please share the sheets? If not, could you direct me to where I could find them?

I love the soundtrack too but I found nothing about it, so I got them by ear. You have to tune the guitar like the E chord, hope it helps you :D

Hi there!

Both of the songs used in the game are royalty-free tracks from Music for Makers. The tracks are Persevere and Broken. Unfortunately, they are on the pricey side if you want to purchase them since they're royalty-free tracks... The versions used in the game are actually shorter because Music for Makers does this thing where they send out free "sample" tracks every week and we used those free tracks for the game.

Thank you so much for your interest and support!

I need help i dont know how to install this please help

This game hurt my soul. I was at a loss for words at the end of both endings. I am now deeply sad. Y'all created a beautiful game/VN. Watch me suffer here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxtIMWjRAH4&feature=youtu.be

Awesome game, can feel the passion behind the characters. I done a play through of one of the story lines. You can find it here. Thanks for making such a great game and within that period of time. Your crew done an excellent job. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing with us.

Whenever I try to run the game, nothing happens. Is there something wrong with the download or is my computer weak or...?

Thanks! I actually got it running. It just takes a really long time to start up the program. Cool stuff. Very nice take on zombie lore.

I discovered that not everyone knows about the bad ending! I'll leave this video here so if anyone would like to see it, take a look. This game is wonderful. To the Developers, thank you once again :)

This was such a well made game, god i loved it it spoke directly to my heart I wish it was longer, I wanted to see more, but here is My Experience! Great job thumbs up and good work Lox Rain!

Hello! I can't seem to get the game to work. It keep saying i can't access to the specific file because I have no permission or something like that. What can I do? Thank you! Q _Q

Hello! I finally got it to work and I enjoyed the game really much!! The graphic and the story is very beautiful!! Thank you so much for create the game! <3

This game was amazingly beautiful. It's so freaking realistic, I can seriously see this happening should the world ever come to this. The focus dedicated to the two characters, rather than the whole world around them was perfect. As always you guys blew me away with your rich storylines and great artwork.

you should put this on steam greenlight. I bet it would get on steam in no time.

Lovely, understated, subtle. I look forward to more from Lox Rain.

And thanks for supporting Linux!

I really enjoy this visual novel. Played through the male's story first, then through the female's story. Thank you for this novel.

I must say that this game is in my top 5 graphic novels, its awesome how you can relate to the characters so well, and i must admit the things they said made me think a lot how you view the world. Also the choice of music was wonderful, and i must ask the names of the songs because i fell in love with them and i cant seem to find them on the internet. Thank you for making this wonderful game!

This little Visual Novel is definitely one of the best I've read in awhile and has earned a place on my top 10. It's short but very well done. I just wish it was a bit longer, but other than that extremely well done.

I never thought my favorite game could be an internet flash game, but it is now. This game is the deepest game I've ever played, and I've played a lot of games. This by far will take spot for the best, and to the devs, thank you, for the great experience.

i just watched a video (albeit a glitchy one) so I'm gonna play the game for myself, but I heard the music and it was amazing :D would be awesome if there was a way you could get the soundtrack without running the game (I have learned doing that is very distracting when trying to get things done or trying to go to sleep. "Just 10 more minutes", he lied.)
