Hello frozenbyte and other players!

When I heard/learned about shadowgrounds I was very enthustiated and eager to test this game, especially because of the finnish team making it (and finnish games don't get out that often). I was impressed by the idea to make very retro-style game since I "consume" a lot of freeware and/or old games.

And it was good! Damn, I cannot remember playing any games as continiously and eagerly in long time. I was very happy to see that there are still developers that are brave enough to respect the old and "simple" concepts and combining it with beautiful graphics. I proudly can put my shadowgrounds to most visible place on the shelve! :)

I truly hope that you go on in future with your very personal and retro gamemaking style. I know it might be hard in times of massive superhyper 3d gaming companies that devour all "weaker" competitors. You totally have my support and I believe many others too. Have faith! :)

Respects, thanks and deep bow!

I just picked up this game as well after reading about it in Steam news (although I purchased it at EB).

I also want to say thanks for a very enjoyable experience at an extremely decent price.

This game had plenty of what I enjoy - fast paced arcade action, weapon upgrades, little nooks off the beaten path to explore and get upgrades, and little frightful scares.

Keep up the good work!!

Hear, hear! :D

I used to play Alien Breed back on the Amiga 500, I played the pretty much unheard of but massive and highly entertaining Take No Prisoners on my old P2 400, and I'm a huge fan of Crimsonland which is a great little budget game for anyone who loves overhead shooters, lots of weapons and loads of aliens (and spiders!) to kill. Combine all three of these and you get: Shadowgrounds!

Suffice to say, SG is a masterpiece, precisely executed, skillfully paced, entertaining and clever (and to hell with Gamespot and their moaning about it not being scary - funny, I don't recall that being a pre-requisite of games), and I am looking forward to recommending it to as many of my friends as I can (see my other post)..

Keep up the good work, FrozenByte, thank you for reviving a favourite genre, doing a Doom 3 story like it should have been done (man, that game annoyed me) and for keeping a seasoned gamer happy!



P.S. I got Crimsonland from here, have a look if you fancy it:

I'm providing a mirror for the freeware version of Crimsonland

It was always free until Reflexive went to the developers and offered them $$$ for them to work on a newer better version of the game.

1.4 is the last free version they made. The online stats don't work obviously but the game is still a blast if you wish to take turns with friends to get a high score, etc...

Playing Crimsonland and enjoying it is a big reason why I bought Shadowgrounds.

I beat the game 10 minutes ago - it was a blast the whole time.

Shadowgrounds equals Fun * (size in bytes)²

and substract Fun * (how many times played through) to honor the developers whoose creation it is!
