Shadow Mongrels is a minimum involvement experiment. All you are in control of is the position the shadows in a simplistic desert landscape. There is a small figure wandering about in front of you, who seems to depend on your abilities in order to continue whatever he is doing without passing out in a heat stroke. Shadow-based creatures inhabit this world who aim to track down the small figure and draw out his life force. When the figure inevitably dies, he becomes another shade-bearing landmark that his successor might find shade under in the future.
