The Case Of Scary Shadows is a game made for the "Bears - In honor of spring" art exhibition held in Belgrade City Museum Gallery in March 2016. It is inspired by a folk belief about the beginning of spring. When the bear wakes up from his winter-long nap and goes hunting for food, he mustn't see his own shadow, because only then the spring can begin. In the game you play as a bear avoiding your shadows, while collecting acorns.


  • WAD / Arrows - move
  • P - pause / help
  • M - sound on / off
  • L - change quality
  • Collect acorns
  • Avoid Shadows
  • Wrap-around from side to side;
  • First honey jar gives you 4 points, next one gives you 8, then 12, 16, 20...
  • Honey jars also release bees
  • Fireflies make one shadow disappear

Excellent game but the jump key doesn't always work :s

CORREEEE!! I The Case of Scary Shadows


Very simple, fun, and well executed! Did you use a game engine to make this, and if so which one?

Thank you. We're glad you liked it. As for the engines - no. We made it from scratch.


Very Nice Game! :

As only a very minor dev myself, I have to say this game is really beautifully simple and fun. Great job!


Really fun and addictive ! I loved it ! x)


Sweet concept!


"The game where you're your own enemy", loved playing it :D (I had more facilities when I used the other hand to jump, maybe also using the spacebar would be an option?)

Also, loved the art and sound design :)



This is way hard, just as much fun!

Thanks for your comment! As hard as they get! :)
