Shades of Black, the 11th game in MDNA’s Carol Reed series, takes place in Sweden. No need to speak Swedish, however. The game is in English with optional subtitles.

Having written a new book, Carol becomes discouraged when attempts to have it published are unsuccessful. Then she’s contacted by a publisher by whom she’d been previously rejected. It seems, however, that the publisher is less interested in her writing skills and more interested in her skill for locating missing persons.

Shades of Black is a standalone game, meaning it’s not necessary to have played any other Carol Reed games in order to enjoy it.

You’ll find no graphic violence or nasty language in Shades of Black. There are no action sequences and you can’t die. The game is suitable for ages 15 and up.

A game demo will be released soon; the full game will launch for PC in August.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
