Where Shadows Slumber is a mobile adventure puzzle game that takes place in a world that has been plunged into darkness. You will guide Obe, an old man who discovers a mysterious lantern in the forest, on one last journey.
The only tools at your disposal are your wits and 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?
What makes my game unique?
Where Shadows Slumber uses a never-before-seen mechanic where shadows can hide objects in the world. This simple, intuitive puzzle gameplay requires players to pay close attention instead of zoning out. This is paired with a dark, gripping narrative about the fallen nature of man that unfolds as you delve deeper into the game. Coupled with a beauty all its own and a majestic soundtrack, Where Shadows Slumber stands out from the crowd in a market filled with copycats and micro-transactions.
Why could my game win an award?
Where Shadows Slumber was created by a tiny team of dedicated game developers. It represents a dying breed on the mobile market. Awarding us the Grand Prix sends a strong message to the world about standing athwart the forces that are corrupting mobile games and turning them into ATMs for big publishers like Activision.
