Shadows in the Sun

A product of the first year of university, this game concept is one of my proudest achievements to date.  This is because it feels complete, it has a clear concept, art style and game mechanics.  It feels like it could easily go straight into production.  Admittedly, I would slightly alter the title, but I post it unchanged from its’ conception.
