Shadows Over Loathing is the follow-up to 2017's satirical stickman RPG West of Loathing. Instead of a western theme, Shadows Over Loathing tackles the Lovecraftian horrors of the mysterious Ocean City. You'll travel across many locations, meeting strange individuals and fighting cosmic horrors in (optional) turn based combat.

Despite the theme, there's no need to take Shadows Over Loathing too seriously. Each encounter is filled with goofy antics, lots of jokes, and "Inappropriate fishing". Completing quests or fighting baddies unlocks new ways to customize your stick-figure protagonist, as they search Ocean City to find their missing uncle Murray.

Developer Quote

Mobsters, monsters, and mysteries — welcome to Shadows Over Loathing, the shady side of an already black-and-white world, and a follow-up to the award-winning West of Loathing.

Your Uncle Murray has requested your aid at his antique shop in Ocean City, but upon your arrival the old man is nowhere to be found. Your investigation into his disappearance and the artifacts he’s been collecting takes a turn when you stumble across some shadowy plots (and a bunch of squirming eldritch tentacles) that threaten to bring about the end of the world.
