''Shadows Of The Damned'' is a game released in June of 2011 from the minds of Creator/ShinjiMikami, Massimo Guarini and {{Suda 51}} (with a soundtrack composed by Music/AkiraYamaoka), and is a comedic horror game with a camera [[AlwaysOverTheShoulder similar to]] VideoGame/ResidentEvil4. Expect an ample amount of RefugeInAudacity, [[BloodyHilarious gore humor]], and [[WorldOfHam haminess]]. The game was originally developed as ''Kurayami'', but EA's ExecutiveMeddling ended up twisting the game into a still fun but far different and less trippy product.

* LostForever: There are hidden red gems throughout the levels, which you need for upgrades. Unfortunately, there's almost no backtracking in this game, and it's not always immediately apparent which way is the side path with the goodies and which is the main path that will shut closed behind you. Worse yet, there's no NewGamePlus, so those precious upgrade gems are lost to you for good. At least you can spend money on more red gems.
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: George.
* MarathonBoss: The third Sister Grim if you don't know the trick. [[spoiler: A fully charged skull blast to the core will end her Darkness stages instantly.]]

* GoodBadBugs: If you quit the game after getting a checkpoint and then reload it, every pick-up in that area - including Red Gems - will respawn. This is only possible in certain areas where you'd be able to pick up a Red Gem and get a checkpoint without leaving said area.
** White Gems can be farmed infinitely off the armored, purple-fume demons that appear in the library by managing to knock them over with the Light Shot and then stomping them indefinitely.

* MoneyForNothing: Since there's no New Game Plus, every White Gem earned after Christopher's final appearence (a couple of chapters before the game's actual ending) is completely useless.



* NoEnding: [[spoiler: By the end Garcia is back to where he started: with Paula by his side, and Fleming hunting for her. Nothing has changed, no conflict has been resolved and everything indicates Garcia's plight will go on forever.]]



* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Okay, so you beat Fleming and rescued Paula. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, Paula's kind of gone crazy from being repeatedly killed and resurrected, and turns into some kind of multi-winged monster that pulls Garcia deeper into the demon world for one last boss battle.]]

* FreudWasRight: Invoked long and hard. Both Johnson and Fleming can barely go three minutes without making a penis innuendo, Fleming because he thinks it's intimidating and Johnson because he's the comic relief.

''Shadows Of The Damned'' is a game released in June of 2011 from the minds of Creator/ShinjiMikami, Massimo Guarini and {{Suda 51}} (with a soundtrack composed by [[SilentHill Akira Yamaoka]]), and is a comedic horror game with a camera [[AlwaysOverTheShoulder similar to]] VideoGame/ResidentEvil4. Expect an ample amount of RefugeInAudacity, [[BloodyHilarious gore humor]], and [[WorldOfHam haminess]]. The game was originally developed as ''Kurayami'', but EA's ExecutiveMeddling ended up twisting the game into a still fun but far different and less trippy product.

** The Library is a practical dead-ringer for the library in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'', sliding bookcase puzzle and all. Furthermore, the sections of the library are named after the [[DivineComedy nine Circles of Hell]].
