The Shadow in the Cathedral is an Interactive Fiction game from Textfyre, the first game in the Klockwerk Series. The game is set in a fictional world where clocks are the central theme in a religion based on Newtonian devices.

Shadow allows the player to interact with a wide-range of puzzling, intriguing machines, such as the Difference Engine and Tea Machine. These are simple push button machines. These are complex machines that require careful manipulation by a curious adventurer. The world of Klockwerk resembles rgar of a steampunk adventure.
