A childhood nostalgia of making shadow puppets, this game is just an ode to those fun filled memories.

Unlikely Shadows is all about finding a unique shadow in unlikely combinations of objects.

How to play : click and drag the objects until you find a likely shape that could represent the given hint, if you think it's correct wait for a second and it'll be validated. If validated to be correct, YOU WIN! and that's all there is to it.

Try to finish all 6 objects!

Since this was a submission to Kenney Jam 2019 we'd like to shout out to Kenney for the years of unconditional love and generosity with which they have shared all these wonderful assets with us.

Thank you Kenney! <3

This game is so brilliant, I love it... Took me a while to figure out what I was meant to do but once I did I was mind blown.

Thank you :)
Me and "ArtistLaddoo" both played each other's levels and enjoyed it a lot, I hope other devs and players enjoyed it just like that. It was Fun and Annoying at the same time.
Thanks for trying it out. and I'm sorry for the Elephant one! hehe

I know this is years too late and probably undermining your effort in this, but check out Shadowmatic, it's 99% the same

Yeah mate, as soon as we submitted and people pointed out this beautiful game "shadowmatic", it's like ultra polished and well designed game on similar concept. They were way ahead of us :D. but we had only 1 day so I'm happy we even finished this one.

Thanks for taking your time to try this one.


Such a great game! I really enjoyed this and it brought me back to when I was a kid and loved trying to do shadow puppets with my hands. The game worked smoothly and the levels progressively got more difficult, would love to try out even more levels :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)


Love it! Was quite fun!

We are Glad you had some fun. will add more fun soon.


So creative! I enjoyed this game and it's feel.

My only feedback would be to resort the levels from easy to hard (pistol was really easy while elephant and tree took me the longest) but I guess maybe that also depends on who's playing.


I feel the same way with those levels


Thank you for the feedback.

The difficulty really varies from person to person,
These 6 were at almost same difficulty,
but we wanted to add more pages as sets, with inc. difficulty.
Will work and upload a more Polished Version someday.


Very well made! Finished the levels very quickly but had fun doing so.
Would definitely play an even more fleshed out version with more levels.


Thank you sir, will do that for sure,
Next time, We will also try that you don't do it "very quickly" but have fun at the same time. :P


Wow Man, Exactly matched with the theme. And amazing idea with amazing implementation. 


I love this entry!

Very cool idea and very well implemented. Impressed with the little rotation at the end of the correct validation. Makes it seem more complex!

Thank you mate, you just made this epic journey worthwhile.
