Shi is a puzzle-solving surreal horror game with retro-styled graphics. The player controls a girl who wakes up deep in a dark basement, surrounded by corpses. The goal is to get to the surface. During gameplay, the girl's morbid thoughts appear near the top of the screen. On each basement floor the player needs to find an elevator leading upwards; this sometimes requires solving simple puzzles, and in two cases, avoiding enemies.

The controls are simple - arrows for moving left and right, Z for interaction. Three endings are available.
