You've received a worrisome letter from your brother with a very strange item enclosed. Fearing the worst, you immediately board a train and arrive in a small town in the mountains of Europe. Disembarking from your trip, your senses tell you that something is amiss here. Where is your brother? What is this all about?

Shade is a 3D horror action game that tells the tale of hidden, ancient evils deep within the Earth on the verge of escaping. As the dark story unfolds, you'll adventure through four worlds (The Present, Middle Ages, Ancient Egypt and The Shadow Land) and battle the horrific monsters within them. Fight eight different groups of enemies that include cursed animals, the walking undead, evil spirits, vengeful demons and wrathful angels.
