If you’re tired of fast-paced games, you’re in luck. Part adventure and part idle game, you’ll be controlling s lonely Shade who is the late servant who to a king who once ruled an underground kingdom. The king’s powered have disappeared, and he falls asleep for 400 days to regain his might.
And it’s the Shade’s duty to stay in the palace until the King awakes. Time will pass as it does in the real world, so it will truly take 400 days. Once the game starts, there is a timer that will countdown on top of the screen.
So it’s up to you to decide how to pass the time. Fortunately, there are a few things for you and the Shade to try out to help pass time.
Some of the things you can do include take a walk in caverns at a slow pace and collect items for your underground living room or read classic literature like Moby Dick directly in the game.
For the more adventurous, you can ignore the king’s commands and try to advance to the outer regions of the cave in a lon and dangerous journey.
Along the way, there are a number of hidden secrets to find. You’ll also enjoy time-based puzzles.
There’s even more good news in 400 days as there are various endings to the game.
I’ve just started the game and am interested to see how the time passes. It’s a unique take on gaming.
