Shadowgrounds is the name of a shoot 'em up video game series for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux developed by Frozenbyte. The games are fast-paced top-down shooters reminiscent of the Alien Breed series and present anachronistic concepts with modern resources. The plot of a monster attack on a space colony exists only as a thin justification for the action, monsters are plentiful and weapons large.

Games[edit]

Shadowgrounds: Survivor running on Linux

The series comprises two games:

Both games were included as part of the third Humble Indie Bundle and as a result later had their source code (but not their graphics or level editor) publicly released.[1][2] The source-code license prohibits commercial use and permits Frozenbyte to change its terms at will.[3]
