Trapped with a Shadow is a short game in which the player takes control of a shadow mouse, shooing an elephant through a puzzle-filled dungeon.

It was developed within two weeks for the Construct 3 Newgrounds Jam (theme: "You are not the main character") and scored second place. It was my first slightly bigger project in Construct 3 and made me fall in love with the engine.

The very simplistic art and animations stem from the fact that all of them were created on the very last day of the jam. Until then my whole focus laid on the game and level design and delivering a complete game with a small but fitting ending. Unfortunately there wasn't enough time to add a planned starting cutscene.

The game is available on
