This is a cool and unique little horror game. The graphics aren't bad, the sound design is creepy, and the mechanics and how you survive in the world all work off of each other. I love how this game combines elements from Alan Wake and even a little Contrast. In most horror games the light generally means safe haven from the terrors that haunt you. But this game flips that on it's head and you have to adapt to the darkness for safety. For a demo this was pretty decent, a few textures missing here and there but everything worked with hardly any issues. I would love to see this game expand into a much larger world with new areas and such. I think this could be a really cool game with some more fine tuning and work. All in all a nice little game and I look forward to seeing what the final release looks like. I did a video on my experience with the demo if anyone is interested.

Lost Shadows is a 3D third person single player adventure/puzzle/horror game set in an abandoned amusement park. The player must avoid the light at all cost to escape the park safely. Dark shadow enemies follow the player through the park and can only be seen in the light. Equipped with only a flashlight, the player must bend the light to their own will using flashlight filters shaped as scissors to cut, electricity to power and gear to move objects.
Will you escape the park?
Here are some of the defining pillars of gameplay for Lost Shadows.
Beware of the Light:
Shadowy enemies that chase the player when they walk through the light
Progress through the game by bending light to turn off or move rides and lights.
Explore the park to find information on why it is abandoned.
