Shadows Of The Afterland is a supernatural comedy adventure that takes players on an enchanting journey through the realms of the living and the afterlife.

You can’t remember your death; you haven’t even been born yet.

Set in 1960 Madrid, the game tells the story of a soul who arrives with the memories of Carolina, a pioneer of the Madrid police force who, shockingly, hasn’t even been born yet.

As players step into Carolina's shoes, they'll be able to use magic, switch between worlds and take possession of the living to solve clever and logically sound puzzles that are closely interwoven with the storyline. A quest that will eventually require confronting the sinister forces that haunt the world of the living.

“We're thrilled to take players on this supernatural journey, where they'll have to confront their fears and make tough decisions about their destiny”, said Rubén López, who wrote the story. "We've poured our hearts into creating a hauntingly beautiful world, with meticulously crafted pixel art and a soundtrack that will send chills down your spine", said Silvia Izquierdo, who is in charge of production.

Key Features:

  • Explore a supernatural murder mystery, blending themes of identity, courage, and destiny with afterlife, reincarnation, and the connection between past and future lives.
  • Take command of various playable characters using unique possession mechanics.
  • Explore the intricate stories of eccentric afterlife spirits through meaningful conversations.
  • Tackle clever and logically sound puzzles intricately intertwined with the storyline. Wield magic, navigate between both realms, and employ possession mechanics to solve them.
  • Immerse yourself in meticulously crafted pixel art scenes and animations.
  • Experience an original soundtrack that enhances the game's haunting atmosphere.

Shadows Of The Afterland is coning to PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch in 2024.
