A downloadable game


Lockedin proudly presents this 3D game prototype called "In the Shadows".

It was developed for our 3D Project assignment that was given to us in the second year of our course Digital Games and Multimedia.

Be aware that currently this project is at an extreme early stage of development.


The game takes place in an medieval era, in a semi open-world with a fantasy environment. It was mainly inspired by Lara Croft and Assassins Creed's franchises. It focus on the adventure aspect but with some Stealth involved.


It follows the story of a young ambitious assassin that has a resolve of avenging her family honor. To succeed in her adventure she needs to use her skills to overcome whatever comes in her way. If you want to know more about the Lore of this game, please visit - Unavailable link.

Beware that the story is still in a very early stage of production and will have changes and adaptations to our needs.


There are three levels so far:

1 - Tutorial, which is the part where is day time. To advance to the next level, go inside the entrance on cave, on the left side you will see an entrace, enter inside of it in order to progress.

2-  Cave, takes place on the underground cave. To advance to the next level you need to exit the cave.

3 - Village.

After you are in the Village there will be no ending, feel free to explore and just exit the game by pressing the key "ESC".

In case you get stuck or have bad performance! (Read this)

There are two things that are worth mentioning.

1 -  If you can't fully climb to the top of a vine in the Cave level, just use a diagonal movement while climbing (it's a bug), while grabbed to the vine, press for example W and D or W and A at the same time. We are aware of the bug of that mechanic, but for testing purposes you can cheat your way to the top of any climbing section.

2- In case of bad performance, we're really sorry we haven't implemented various quality settings or resolutions, in our next patch those are the first functionalities we are going to make sure to add.


We are going to update shortly this section, but if you have problems either interacting or activating some part of the level, just try a different button on the controller or keyboard, we're sorry we haven't had the time to fix it.

Hello guys,
i would love to try out your game an make a lp for youtube, but i have a problem with the downloaded files. I can't unzip them. They seems to be broken. I have windows 10 and try to unzip them with the default windows unzip software. What am i doing wrong?

Hi Frajac,

It would be easier to solve this issue through Discord, If you can please give us your Discord ID or add mine @PedroSG#8427 , we can discuss the problem there and even use the screen share capability to completely solve the problem in question in case it's needed.

Thank you for your understanding!
