In the Keeper’s Shadow is an intimate hand-painted adventure game.
a young inquisitive girl named Emi journeys to unearth secrets amidst the crumbling, war-torn city she's called home.

She wanders the depths seeking to be noticed and heard

Game

Through a mix of point and click, direct control, and puzzles, players will help Emi understand and confront an ever-encroaching twisted psychological and physical landscape.

The game features audio logs, artifacts, atmospheric sound, and complex characters that invite players to connect with echoes of the past and ponder themes of love, despair, compassion, inner strife, and closure.  

Will she put the pieces together before it’s too late?

  • Single player experience using elements of classic point & click, adventure, and puzzle games
  • COLLECT CLUES to understand Emi's world and its history
  • fully voiced characters
  • Engage with Unique cinematic environments for a hand-crafted, story-book feel
  • hand-painted aesthetic depicting dystopian surrealism

  • History

    In the Keeper’s Shadow is a fantastical retelling of co-founder Jessica Fong’s visionary world and her portfolio of over 10 years of work expressing her family’s struggle to confront their history with child abuse. 

    The founders wish to create something meaningful from this darker chapter of her life and have the confidence to share these creative mindscapes with others. The game is a needed cathartic release for those closest to the work and who want greater awareness of the signs and consequences of child abuse. 

    to what we go through alone and together when facing the hardships of our past
