Alone in the woods, Lumi is surrounded by sinister shadow monsters and a mysterious creature locked in a cage. Lumi’s only hope to escape the woods of Hallowtide lies in the delicate friend-yet-foe relationship of the creature in the cage. Harness Lumi’s ability to gather and craft resources while keeping the lantern lit to ward off the swarming shadow monsters.
Inspired by Survival Horror games like Don’t Starve and the timeless autumnal aesthetic of Over the Garden Wall, Hallowtide embodies the familiar mechanics of the Survival Horror Genre while also offering a unique experience to spooky game lovers everywhere.
Hallowtide was made in collaboration with the Creative Media and Digital Culture Program (CMDC Program) at Washington State University Vancouver. The development team is incredibly grateful for the support and resources the CMDC program provides that allows our team to continue working remotely. We also wish to extend thanks to the Portland Indie Game Squad (PIGSquad) for including our game in their 2021 Halloween Horror Game Marathon.
CMDC Studios is a team of multi-talented game developers who are passionate about creating narrative-rich games through immersive gameplay and thoughtful design. With an ever-growing game library of heartfelt, adventurous, and sometimes mysterious titles, CMDC Studios invites players to explore a wide range of digital experiences.
