You were supposed to have a relaxing weekend getaway in a rental cabin out in the country. But when a weird object is found nearby, it leads you on a dark path of vexing questions. To answer them, you'll need to navigate an ever darkening forest, find hidden clues, and endure strange visitations. Ultimately you'll face a wicked conundrum thought long forgotten. The true mystery of your situation may even require an altered perception of reality to solve.

Ardent recommends playing Shadow and Ash late at night, alone, in a darkened room, with headphones.
Shadow and Ash has very low system requirements. As long as you have a Windows PC and a monitor capable of displaying 1280x720 resolution, you should be fine.
