Last year, Alberta-based Kowai Sugoi Studios released short puzzle-horror game called Cozy — which started out as a two-man project for Pixel Horror Jam 2016. It was an unexpected hit.

Shiver is Cozy‘s spiritual successor. It’s a tense point-and-click horror adventure that takes place in the Canadian wilderness.

You’re en route to a retirement home to visit your father when you become stranded in the abandoned Windy Oaks National Park. Using your wits and tenacity, you must problem-solve your way through a variety of challenges, unravel the mysteries of the park and escape before you’re consumed.

Shiver‘s art style is a combination of painting and photography. Built with the Unity Engine, the game is designed to be played in a single gaming session.

The plan is to release Shivers through Steam Direct this October in time for Halloween. It will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

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.
