The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car [PWYW/Free]

#1 Post by Camille » Fri Aug 19, 2016 3:32 pm

The road is long.

Two strangers sit side by side as night falls over. The car speeds down the open highway.

Without a soul around them, everything seems to slip away. On a journey to no one knows where, all they have is words and time. And that time is dwindling fast.

The shadows are chasing.


The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car is a visual novel by Lox Rain. Shadows was made over the course of four days during mid-August 2016 and was released August 19, 2016. The game features two character routes and six endings. Recommended for ages 15 and up. Made with love and Ren'Py.

Shadows is pay-what-you-want, but you can download the game for free.

Content Warnings: mentions of suicide, killing, and violence, explicit language.

All the info and downloads are here on!

The title alone is catchy, and I really like the art.
I'll be downloading this! :)

I really liked this VN. The characters are established really well in a short time, and I'm hoping for good things for them even at the end of the world. The art is also really nice, I love the changing colors as the sun sets.
