How long does the ShadowCatcher take????
Interessante Gamedesign! Ist mal was anderes als diese ermüdeten klassischen Horror Games!
I like the feel of speed and size difference. when the speed decreases, it feels like in a dream, when you try to run, but you can't. great for bringing some tension
kinda waited for SC to be more .. inquisitive, but it still were a tense atmosphere
also, I like the recipe book and the way the text in it sometimes distracts from important points and makes it harder to quick perception
i cant figure out how to like open it someone help- bc every time i open it, it just says "THERES A PROBLEM REINSTALLING IT WILL HELP-" 0-0
its a great game tho, i love how its like a mix of having fun and cooking while a monster called the shadowcatcher is trying to find you! its a mix of my two favorite things and I love it!
i love this game. i found it through eddievr and i'm glad i got it! really well done!
Thank you very much. :)
Since my grandmother and aunt used to run a cantine, I'm getting some heartwarming vibes of Saint-Marc playing this.
I really like the gameplay of this, as in having to cook quickly while some shadowy figure lurks around, but I love that I can just remember the recipes and just do all the orders in one fell swoop, it's very fun and I think there's much more that could be done with this, like having more people to catter to at a time, the Diner Dash of Horror.
That's very nice to hear! :)
I do hope to revisit this concept at a later date.
Glad you had some fun with it.
And I return once more for one of your games. Holy crap. I still don't know how you do it that your games are so good. I actually will play more of this on my channel.
Could you upload this for the Itch desktop client?
As far as I'm aware, you should already be able to download and play this game using the desktop version of Itch!
I don't think there should be anything different regarding it.
This game was extremely difficult for me to beat. Sometimes I felt like I couldn’t hear his footsteps or I just wasn’t paying attention. But the game was funny and scary and I loved the story.
My apologies for any issues you had with this one!
Sound design, specifically volume level, is something I've often struggled with.
Glad to hear you've enjoyed the story, despite the problems.
Thanks for playing.
It may be because the Shadowcatcher waits by the door after investigating it once, and he starts doing it on the second night. That was something that got me several times, but when I saw he stood still outside, well I just had to wait a bit longer.
these games are great and all but the furry women with overexadurated body parts are making me not want to like them since i feel like its so unfitting
tbh i think thats what make the game unique, besides, it dont look something sexualized in a way, its just oversweet i believe!
Okay I said Awsome because I saw it in other videos but it keeps on telling me the file is forbidden, could you help me?
Someone stole this and put it up on Google Play. They did the same with my game. Just wanted to give you a heads up
Thank you for letting me know.
However, there's not much I can do about people posting fake versions of my games.
Take one down and another three pop up, sort of like a scummy hydra.
This game is just amazing, i would love to play more games like that! Have a nice day/night :>
I work in a translation team (Portuguese translations), and we would like to contact you if you would like to partner and have a translation. Thank you if you are read this.
The Aozora team.
Thank you for the offer! However, I must decline.
While I understand that adding another language into these games would increase the number of potential players, I do not wish to take up any more work than I already have.
Once again, thanks for offering.
hey nice game you made can you give me tips of how to make my game controllable
First of all, thank you!
As far as controllers go, I don't use them so I wouldn't be able to help.
i have a little bug while making the pancakes, i cannot add butter or sirup to the pancakes. I have tried starting new games, redownloading the game and i still cant add them. You have any tips on how to fix it? Btw great game, i play it very often with my friends and we call The Shadowcather: The Ducky, Cause its face/ mask looks like a duck head. I love all your games tbh.
Are you certain you've followed the cookbook precisely? Keep in mind the dish requires four pancakes.
Also, thank you for your interest in the game, I appreciate it.
Yea, i know that:
1. You need pancake batter
So i take four pancakes and fry them until they are done. Then i put them all on a plate and then i get the butter and syrup. The red dot comes up but i cant add the butter or syrup. I prob have such a crappy pc, since its like 10 years old.
I play your games so often that i remember how to make all food I the menu XD.
Thank you for responding :}
i really want to play
Hello, sorry if I have bad English. But I wanted to tell you that I love your games and characters, each game seems unique, and to know that it is yours is to see the designs, although they are not perfect I love them very much
the game is fun, it mixes terror with a touch of making you think and how fun it is to cook, it has a simple but engaging story I would definitely play it again not only because I'm a furry haha and here I show you how I left it xd
can i play this game
i want to play it
It's so nice to hear that you enjoyed playing the game!
Thank you very much.
Still going back through and playing this after I downloaded it a few days ago, something about it just caught my interest and now it's just something fun to do to relax (which is funny considering it's a horror game). I love all your works, especially for the ambiance and characters, but this one has a lot of replayability for me. I really like the base mechanics of it, and the cooking part is really fun for me. I'd honestly play the thing if it was just a cooking simulator where you got to serve the shadows!
Great job with the main gameplay and having to use the sounds to determine what the Shadowcatcher is doing. I love how you included so many aspects of the game that you have to play for a little while or pay close attention to catch, like the fact that you can go up to the door and open it to look around or that if you don't hear footsteps after he searches once he's hiding in the doorway and you can see him waiting to come in again. Things like that make short games fun.
It does have a bit of a learning curve without a tutorial, but if you just pay attention well enough you can pretty easily get a good idea of what you're doing. Once you get past that and explore how it works it's very fun and for me, something I love to replay. Great job Zed! Can't wait to see what you do next.
First of all, I appreciate the fact you've taken the time to write such an in-depth comment!
It's great to hear that you were able to enjoy the game as much as you have.
Hearing that I've created something that's enjoyable is one of the highest honors as a dev.
Thank you very much!
Thank you very much, that's very kind of you to say!
And of course, thanks for playing as well.
Зацените мое видео по этой игре, я из России - See my video about this game, i'm from Russia
Amazing game but when I tap to try to switch characters when I wanna hide them it makes the character talk when I tap on them but overall an amazing game keep up the good work!
Glad you liked it!
My apologies for any issues you may have experienced with the game.
The game is very interesting, it is also entertaining the atmosphere that it projects makes one get into the skin of the protagonists/
El juego es muy interesante, ademas es entretenido la atmosfera que este proyecta hace que uno se meta en la piel de las protagonistas
I love how in the end the shadowcatcher smiles and has a change of heart. And its so funny how Maude keeps asking Samantha for coffee when Samantha says no every time. So i would like to say i enjoyed the game and its pretty good ngl.
Love this game liked the ending a lot!
I love this game so much but i cant play it im so sad ill figure out how to play it later love the game.
Glad to hear you like the game!
If you're having issues with the game, please be sure to let me know.
couldnt download it....
very great game!!!!!!!
honestly its a great game and i hope that you can find a way to kinda continue the shadow catcher series by adding a sequel to it but it could have a twist im no coder nor model designer and im honestly only 13 but i do have some ideas on what a sequel game could be like id be willing to work with you and would love to help give you some new ideas if you are interested then just reply and we can find a way to get into communication either by email or discord so i hope to hear back from you! :)
While I appreciate the offer, I don't need any additional help right now.
I loved this game! The game has good gameplay and is great
Played this after "The Man From The Window" and "The Vermander's Curse", and I love your gamedev style (the characters, the animation style, the gameplay mechanics)! :)
I wonder one thing though: If a big part of society in your games are humanoid animals, doesn't that make the restaurant partially cannibalistic?
Thank you very much for your kind words, I appreciate them greatly. :)
Also, no. This hasn't been explored in the games yet, but my reasoning is that the meats of this universe retain most of the same names, but come from various types of monsters and entities.
The game is pretty awesome, but sometimes the Shadowcatcher enters through the main door without doing any footsteps sound, and I think that's a little bit unfair. Other than that, I really like this game!
Glad to hear you liked the game, thanks for playing! :)
Regarding your issue, I will say that there is a sound. However, my audio leveling skills leave much to be desired, so it's probably not loud enough. My apologies!
just finished the game, last night played "the man from the window" too! i loved both games, please continue making these games!
It's always nice to hear it while someone enjoys these games. :)
Thanks for playing both, I appreciate it! :)
Hello, just wanted to say your game is pretty damn cool. Do you plan on releasing your games onto steam?
Thank you very much! :)
For right now I'd like to stay right here and show my support for Itch, as I quite like this site.
I don't know what the future holds, but for the foreseeable future there are no plans for Steam releases. :)
This is the allegorical game. The shadow family represents the civilians immigrating to a new country for a happier life, while the Shadowcatcher represents the dark side of border control and xenophobic authorities that doesn't let people from their different land go, discriminating them.
So, the Shadowcatcher is discriminating the family of shadow immigrants.
