When the Blackout swept across town, those with the power of the ember gem
were called to wield the dark fury of…the shadow animals.
As a Shadowcaster trained in the art of the Black Palm Summon, call on your inner
shadow animal and fight for supremacy in a land possessed by darkness. Will you
bring feral lightning on your foes as Urzap Major? Crash into battle with
Combustibull’s explosive force? A mighty roster of beasts wait for you to enter the
arena and claim their fearsome power.
Master your shadow animal with a flurry of palm and finger strikes aimed at your
enemy. Shatter your rival’s ember gem to sever their connection with their beast,
but be warned: they’re out to destroy yours too.
Step into the dark, put your fists up, and let the power of your shadow take form.
While blackouts were a common problem in the province of Dan’s childhood, they
were also moments for some imaginative play. Against the light of a candle, he
and his siblings would conjure animal shapes with their hands, their shadows
looming large in the theater of their house’s walls. Shadow Animals: Blackout is
inspired by those memories and is influenced by Dan’s love of the Street Fighter
games he played growing up.
