About the Game
Unusual mix of an adventure and an idle-game.

Play as a lonely Shade, the last servant of a king who once ruled an underground kingdom. The king's powers have faded and he falls asleep for 400 days to regain his might. It is your duty to stay in the earthen palace until he awakens.

As soon as you start, the game inevitably counts down the 400 days - even when you stop playing and exit the game.

It is now up to you to decide what to do with your solitary existence beneath the soil. Don't stress yourself, you have plenty of time.

Choose your playing style

Start the game and simply come back after 400 days to see how it ends. You actually don't have to play the game at all. But the Shade will be even more lonely without you.

Or explore the caves and collect items for your comfortable underground living room. Just send the Shade to take a stroll - the walking speed is slow, but luckily there is no need to hurry.

Read tons of classic literature from Nietzsche to Moby Dick right in the game - or at least have the shade read them. After all, time goes by faster if you learn to keep your mind occupied. (The little Shade in the game finds ONLY English books for now.)

Ignore the king's commands and advance to the outer regions the cave. It will be a long and dangerous journey into darkness...

Features
  • Slow exploration of a vast, hand-drawn cave.
  • Atmospheric Dungeon Synth soundtrack.
  • Various endings.
  • Lots of well hidden secrets.
  • Time-based puzzles.
  • A lonely but cute protagonist.
NOTE: The game time keeps counting down even if you quit the game or shut down your computer.

Reviews about the game

THE LONGING22.11.2023

I got really attached to the shade... I gave him a family, helped him make a friend, express themselves using art and after ending the game, I feel like this void. I saw him live a happy life, so I dont wanna go in the game and disturb his peace. But sometimes I think of him and miss him. In other words, this game is great if u have the patience. Totally worth it, need more games like this

I liked this game, I played it for awhile then left it, then came back and the timer ran down. It was interesting, on one hand you start to care for the Shade, but on the other there is a fine line between the walking speed being slow to emphasize the loneliness and being absolutely insufferable. Crystals took many many minutes to mine, and even though the idea of the game is to wait, I felt like I was being punished at times. The reason I do still recommend this game is because there are moments in the Shade's little cave, as I'm forcing him to read a book and letting him read it by himself, that truly immerses you and made me want to explore more. You feel sad for this little Shade, but you also want to scream at him to MOVE FASTER. I think it is a game that would be truly magical listening about in a video essay of someone who is a thousand times more patient than me.
