What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Shadows Lengthen is a love letter to Open-Source games & the UP Blender Game Engine! For those new to the UP Blender Game Engine, it is an open-source game engine that you can use to make 3D games!

This game is in early access because it is a work in progress. As an independent game creator, I have received lots of help from many talented contributing artists, however creating an open-world game exclusively in Blender takes time & the majority of this project has rested on my shoulders.

I hope you will join me as I develop "The Shadows Lengthen" by playing the early access & being a part its evolution!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect that this game will be in early access for 3-6 months. Though it is difficult to predict what challenges I will face while improving the game & fixing bugs, I feel that this is a good estimate.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For future releases of the game, I plan to include:

1) Two additional monsters! The Werewolf & the Banshee! These two monsters will have different play styles, behaviors & weaknesses.
2) A more complete open-world with fleshed out environments & level design.
3) One more weapon: THE CHAINSAW! Where players can attack monsters with a chainsaw!
4) Improved AI: Monsters will stalk players with advanced behavior that location specific, meaning that the monster will respond to player behavior based on where they are, & how they behave.
5) Improved game physics & object interaction. Less "jittering" object physics & improved interaction with doors, windows & closets.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The currently the gameplay exists as a loop, & the procedural open world functions well!
Players can jump in & face the Vampire in a cat & mouse chase.

Once the sun sets...
Players can hide from the vampire until sunrise, or attack & kill her -- or be killed...”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For general release, the price will gradually drop.
I plan to add DLC to this game in the form of additional monsters, which I intend to add as often as possible.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I welcome all feedback on the games development.
Those who purchase the Early Access game on steam will be able to directly request features & changes.

However since this is made in the UP Bender Game Engine, owners of the game can also open the working files & make creative changes, so the game plays any way you like! All you need is the UP Blender Game Engine which I encourage all games enthusiasts to try out!”

About This Game

`The Shadows Lengthen is a procedural, open-world, horror game running on the Blender Game engine.
What would it really be like to encounter a monster in the woods?
The only objective is to survive the night, by any means necessary.

Confront monsters & Cryptids from Myth and Legend, one on one in the woods!
Intelligent enemy AI
Monsters are rendered & programmed faithfully to their lore.

This is a game made entirely in the UP Blender Game Engine. That means I am not a big studio, I am just an individual who has, with the help of many other artists, been able to create an open world game.

All the assets in this game are unique. From 3D models and animations, to vehicles and audio, there is no stock art included in this project.

Please join me in celebrating what Blender and the UP Blender Game Engine can do!
