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:


Very nice take on the old snake game you'd find on Nokia cell phones.

I enjoyed the game a good bit. Have a video of myself getting 227 points. I would love to see the bees worth a bit more points since often they are not worth even collecting. However, if the point is to put a hazard up there that people want to avoid I would understand. Great job!

We just saw your video, and commented on it. It's great. Thank you :)
Honey jars give you more points each time (4, 8, 12, 16 ...) So it might be worth investing, since you might be getting 40+ points for each jar later on. We'll try to make it more clear in the next update :)

shadow is TOO FAST

Luckily, a lot of gamers visited the exhibition, and they were pleasantly surprised. It was such a treat to watch them compete for the highest score :)
