What do you get when you combine Voodoo mythology, an interdimensional war for the souls of humanity, and Jack the Ripper? SHADOW MAN…

Shadow Man is the brave and powerful supernatural hero who protects humanity from the sinister demons that lurk in the Deadside and spill into our world. The SHADOW MAN video game was originally developed by Acclaim Studios and published for the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast in 1999. Considered a “lost classic” for years, the PC version of the game was published again in its original form by Nightdive Studios in 2014. SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED was updated using Nightdive’s proprietary KEX engine, which has been used to restore classic video games across all digital platforms, including System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Blood: Fresh Supply, and Forsaken Remastered.

Dramatis Personae:

Michael LeRoi: The game protagonist, Michael LeRoi, is a 32-year-old college dropout with a penchant for gambling. After a series of events involving $20,000, a supernatural being known as a Bokor, and a drive-by shooting, LeRoi found himself an alcoholic amnesiac, working as a hitman. The voodoo priestess known as Mama Nettie finds Michael and uses her supernatural powers to implant him with the Mask of Shadows — thus turning him into the titular Shadow Man!
Mama Nettie: A mysterious, centuries-old Voodoo Priestess who created the Shadow Mask; Mama Nettie is Michael’s go-to guide for his new role as Shadow Man, offering advice, direction, and occasionally, a warm bed to the latest in the line of Voodoo warriors.

The Shadow Man: The Shadow Men were a line of African warriors with supernatural powers whose duty was to protect their tribe from threats emanating from the realm of Deadside. The brutality of the European slave trade nearly wiped them out. Thanks to Mama Nettie and her creation, the Shadow Mask, the powers of the “Walker-between-the-Worlds” can be passed down to whoever has the honor of wearing the mask. The wearer gains spectacular powers and the ability to traverse dimensions.

Deadside: A terrifying realm of shadow and darkness dotted with lakes of blood, Deadside is inhabited by all manners of supernatural beasts, including zombies and pale-skinned Deadsiders.

Legion: The primary antagonist of the game; it’s not entirely known exactly what Legion is; they are the prime recruiter of The Five and dead-set on conquering the world of the living. Their appearance may change, sometimes showing up as a rather nondescript middle-aged man in a colorful suit, other times looking like a giant worm, but their purpose is always the same: invade Liveside with an army of the dead.

The Five: Every arch-villain needs a crew of cronies, and Legion has recruited quite the cast of nasty, wicked individuals to carry out their bidding. History’s most legendary murderers have been turned into demonic, supernatural beings, leading the attack on Liveside in-person. Marco Cruz, Milton Pike, Avery Marx, Victor Batrachian, and of course, the most iconic slayer of them all: Jack the Ripper.

SHADOW MAN: REMASTERED retails for $19.99 USD on the respective storefronts for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles. The remastered game was initially released for Windows PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Game Store on April 15, 2021.
