Shadow Man: Remastered is a refreshed version of the 1999 action adventure game based on a comic book by the American publisher Valiant. The remaster is produced by the award-winning Nightdive studio, bringing back to life the hits from the past. The team is known for System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Blood: Fresh Supply, and Forsaken Remastered. The original Shadow Man was created by Acclaim Studios and published on PCs, PlayStation, Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast. The sequel, entitled Shadow Man: 2econd Coming, was released in 2002 exclusively on PlayStation 2.

Plot

Shadow Man: Remastered takes place in the late 90s. Its main character is Michael LeRoi, the last in a line of powerful voodoo warriors, protecting the living from the dangers of the other side, the world of the dead. During the adventure, we will travel through the swamps of Louisiana, New York, a Texas prison, and a psychiatric hospital, chasing the dangerous subordinates of a mysterious man named Legion, who is preparing to bring the apocalypse into the world. The story is based on the comic book adventures of a superhero named Shadowman, which began to appear in the early 90s.

Mechanics

Shadow Man: Remastered is a TPP action adventure game. In addition to exploring a dozen three-dimensional locations, solving a variety of puzzles and searching for magical artifacts, we also fight against many supernatural enemies such as zombies, skeletons and ghosts. Michael LeRoi has firearms and many mystical voodoo powers in his arsenal.

During the exploration, LeRoi collects the Dark Souls, which are necessary to unlock further maps, and also finds small orange objects to expand its health bar. While playing, he also gains new abilities, helping him to overcome selected obstacles. The game allows you to freely return to previously completed levels in order to explore all nooks and crannies and check previously blocked roads.

It is worth mentioning that the Nightdive studio decided to reimplement elements and stages, which for various reasons were removed from the original version.

Technical aspects

Shadow Man: Remastered was developed in a similar way to the other Nightdive remasters. The game has been entirely ported to a new proprietary developer graphics engine called KEX. However, the three-dimensional game geometry and gameplay model have not changed. The developers introduced many novelties in the audiovisual sphere. These include dynamic lighting and shadows, antialiasing, advanced molecular effects and support for HDR technology. Textures, interface and production soundtrack have also been improved. The game also supports the full range of the most popular screen resolutions including 4K.
