Shadybug Dev

Making narrative games, with a focus on monsters and mental health

Hi! We’re Shadybug Dev, and we make games! Here, you’ll find updates and behind-the-scenes info on our projects, with at least one post each month. At the moment, you can expect to see development logs for our primary project, Lavender Hollow, as well as occasional concept posts about our secondary project, Switch/Glitch. Every month, we’ll also introduce you to a different character from Lavender Hollow’s world!

Right now, we're working on:

Lavender Hollow (primary project, in development):

Lavender Hollow is a 2.5D puzzle adventure about tending the dead, and cherishing the living. At the moment, an early demo is playable on itch.io!

Switch/Glitch (secondary project, concept stage):

Switch/Glitch is a metroidvania about living with Dissociative Identity Disorder (and also, robots)

Shadybug Dev is run by Cicada Carpenter and Otar! Thanks for stopping by!
