“6-10 months.”

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

“In the full version we plan to add new regions, unique enemies and NPCs, extra player abilities alongside new challenging bosses, deepened game mechanics and story elements. Plus, we're expanding the localization to include more languages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access includes:
  • 3-4 hours of immersive gameplay, with polished visuals and experience close to the final version.
  • 2 different regions of the Shadowland, and a foretaste of 2 further ones.
  • Core actions and skills of the main character.
  • Smooth movement mechanics seamlessly woven into the exploration and environmental challenges.
  • Unique enemies and challenging bosses, increasing the excitement of the combat.
  • Achievements, skills to gain and buy as well as engaging quests.

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

“The price will increase once leaving Early Access.”

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

About This Game

A small creature named Cosmic unexpectedly finds himself in a foreign realm of monsters and bizarre beings. To find the way back he must first save his best companion - his lost shadow. But what exactly has happened? What is this place? Where to go? And why are there no shadows in this strange and dangerous world? Except the one who suddenly emerges from the darkness and offers to protect Cosmic in the desperate quest to rescue his friend and return home.

Explore the ominous Shadowland and unravel its secrets. Meet the inhabitants of this hostile land, make allies and gain new skills that will help you survive. Discover the power of light in the world of darkness to fight your way through hordes of demonic creatures. And solve the mystery of your friend's disappearance.

Enjoy a smooth platformer experience in a 2.5D metroidvania full of combat and movement challenges inspired by the best games of the genre!


▸World exploration: travel through the hostile Shadowland divided into 4 distinct realms - the mysterious Riversoul, the inhospitable Crab Sands, the proud Jellyfish Kingdom and the treacherous Grim Jungle.

▸Dynamic combat: fight, dodge, jump and chain your attacks into devastating combinations. Unleash the power of your ally, the shadow of a mighty beast, to defeat your enemies. Keep in mind, though, that all shadows need light to be seen...

▸Character development: collect darkflies, the source of magical energy in the Shadowland, that will allow you to acquire new powers, unlock helpful skills and reach Cosmic’s full potential.

▸Intense boss battles: powerful monsters will stand in your way. Use different tactics to fight them, avoid their deadly strikes and take advantage of your unique abilities to emerge victorious!

▸Secrets to uncover: the world you will explore is filled with hidden places and mysterious creatures. Some of them will be eager to help you, while others will expect something in return. Dive into the history of the Shadowland to better understand the events that led you there and gain knowledge that might prove useful in your journey.

Beware… you may never know what’s lurking behind the veil of shadows!
