Summary

In My Shadow is a puzzle game in which you manipulate objects to cast shadows. Shadows are what create the level for your character, you need to make it so you can collect all the memories and make it to your dog on the far side. As you progress it gets harder with more obstacles, objects/items, and ways to manipulate them come into play. It’s a solid workout for your old brain and it’s got a well-told story. For me I liked the ability to skip levels as I’m not the smartest guy in the world but I hated the lack of any replay value or the fact that the music really got on my nerves, I mean it’s going for something and I suppose it works for that but even that reason will tire you out, it’s just one of those songs that doesn’t differentiate that much. In My Shadow has no Steam achievements or any way to rebind controls. Overall In My Shadow is a good puzzle game with cool mechanics and is worth a single playthrough.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
