* One of the best alien-shooter games with epic boss fights and an interactive environment!
* Are you afraid of the dark? You should be, aliens in this game love dark places so use your flashlight wisely, the battery wont last forever!
# Upgradeable weaponry
Use a devastating arsenal of high-tech weaponry to dispose of the alien threat. Each weapon has multiple upgrades that maximize the carnage. Examples include a pinpoint laser that cuts the aliens in half and and a railgun that fires wall-bouncing bullets – kill several aliens with only one shot! Check out more examples in Weapons & Upgrades.
# Destructible environment
What good are weapons and special effects if you can’t wreak havoc on the environment? Shadowgrounds lets you go all-out – glass shatters, ground shakes, trees fall, barrels explode and furniture blows to smithereens. Use the environment to your advantage.
# Stunning visuals and intensive atmosphere
Shadowgrounds uses cutting-edge realistic lighting and glow technology to light up the battlefield. Procedural texturing system enables virtually unlimited number of animatable effects such as water and lava. Lightmaps and dynamic lighting bring even more intensity to the environment. Together these technologies create an amazing atmosphere for the game.
# Realistic lighting with gameplay effects
Realistic lighting looks great – but it is an important gameplay feature, too. Aliens react to light, which allows for unique combat movements. Point your flashlight straight into the eyes of the monsters and see what happens… Some aliens try to stay in the shadows right until they attack you and the great variation in alien species means you must not let your guard down at any time. Field reports have even indicated that there might be species that are only identified by their shadow – you can’t see them in normal light. Watch out…
Big, brutal monsters await you. Prepare to face many different bosses who will do anything to stop your journey. They are nasty, blood-thirsty beasts but don’t give in to fear – remember to use the environment and the lighting to your advantage!
# Epic storyline & interesting characters
Shadowgrounds has an intriguing and deep storyline. The player is not alone – many allies fight alongside him. Mission highlights include investigating alien origins, helping in rescue evacuation and setting up defense perimeters.
# Thrilling sound environment
Shadowgrounds’ breath-taking atmosphere is further enhanced by a thrilling soundtrack and realistic sound environment. The soundtrack has been designed to support the game’s atmosphere perfectly. Frozenbyte has an in-house musician working full-time on the game’s sound and music environment – the soundtrack has been in development for almost a year and features a diverse collection of music scores from many different genres.
