Fading Shades is a small 1st person adventure game, set in an unknown location. The only way out is by crossing the rainbow bridge but you can't as long as there are colors missing...
As the game progresses, you'll learn who you are, why you are trapped in these tunnels and what need to be done to set things right again.
Every time a key puzzle is solved, the in game music changes a little, to make you aware of the progress.

Fading Shades started out as a simple idea, that later evolved into a game. In its early stages, I used a program called Medi8tor, which was not appropriate for game development. I did the majority of the graphics in 2005.
In 2006 I teamed up with Mr.Lou / Dewfall Productions, who composed the cool in game music. He also had lots of ideas for the game concept, so he has helped me a lot.
Same year I discovered a free program suitable for making adventure games, called Adventure Game Studio (AGS). The game was then redone from scratch, and finally released in 2008.
AGS made Fading Shades their Pick of the Month May 2009.
“There are not many first person AGS adventures, as it takes a bit more effort to do one than with the standard 3rd person games, but as games like Unbound show, they are possible and with very good results. This month's pick, Fading Shades is another good example. The game oozes atmosphere and is well worth a try.”
