Weaving together gameplay, memory, self-identity and power, ShadowBody is a short story game.

Set in the near future where a piece of technology called Shadow Body has been introduced to the public. These shadow bodies are ways of containing all of a person’s individual data in one object, which is ‘owned’ by the individual. One can also use the shadow body to store personal data like photos, and personal memorabilia. For this reason, shadow bodies are being used in a medical context, as they provide insight into a patient’s past.

You'll be playing the role of a doctor investigating memories through a ShadowBody.
