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. This promo art was made by our friend Aleksandar Zolotic:



Rated 4 / 5 stars

That's a decent strategy for beginners, but if you want to compete for the highscore or unlock some of those medals you'll have to do much more :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I love bears, and I love you for giving bears a chance.
I would have rated 5/5, but there's no chance for bear to have a happy ending and sad bears just won't do.

Love the idea it's awesome to see original takes on the platformer genre keep coming out. Everything from the music to the characters has a nice charm to it.

This game needs a more responsive jump button. Either include an input buffer or let people hold the button.

Love it! Super cute and fun game. Frantic to try and avoid the shadows.

Only problem is that there's an error everytime I lose to upload my score? I can't get medals i'm gunna cry :'( That's why i'm rating it so bad

ragevb responds:

That's quite strange. I haven't heard that anyone else had that problem. Please check your internet connection. And thanks for letting me know.

edit: I've changed a few things, and it should work now.
