The story centers around a FeaturelessProtagonist who is sent on a TestOfCourage into Professor Windlenot's MuseumOfTheStrangeAndUnusual. You soon discover, however, that the museum is haunted by the Ixupi, evil spirits that suck away the life force of those around them. You see, back when Windlenot was still adding exhibits for the museum, two teenagers named Merrick and Beth started sneaking in to see the museum early. Once they were caught, they asked if they could help him out and he reluctantly agreed. You later find out that it was Merrick and Beth who accidentally released the Ixupi, a mistake that not only costed their lives, but Windlenot's as well. In order to survive the night, you must find the {{Soul Jar}}s for each spirit and seal each one into its proper container.

The game received a sequel, ''Shivers II: Harvest of Souls'', and was released in 1997. A rock band by the name of Trip Cyclone stops in the small town of Cyclone, Arizona while scouting out locations for music videos. The town seems to have gotten stuck in time decades ago, people are strange and not welcoming to outsiders. When two hikers disappear in the wake an ancient Indian curse, members of the town set out for a search expedition, only to lose one of them in the process. The town's population slowly begins to dwindle, tourists stop coming in, and the only way out of Cyclone is blocked by a rockslide, trapping the band. Things only get worse when they are approached by a strange man wearing a traditional Indian Kachina mask, who calls himself Darkcloud. As a personal friend of the band, you are tasked with finding ancient prayer sticks called Bahos in order to lift the curse from the town, and also figuring out where Trip Cyclone and the rest of the town have disappeared to.

Added DiffLines:

** Same with the town of Cyclone. Once a quaint little town, it isn't until Trip Cyclone's arrival that things begin to change. Townsfolk are disappearing left and right, those who remain begin quarreling with each other, and they begin to blame the band for the disappearances. Too bad they don't realize [[spoiler: the town was built on an ancient burial ground.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: You can find one of Windlenot's books in Cyclone's library in the sequel.

Added DiffLines:

Both games feature a unique "flashback" feature rarely seen in other adventure games. Whenever you come across a code or a solution to a puzzle, the game will store the solution as a "memory" to help avoid backtracking and note taking.

* BookcasePassage: In the library there is a secret pot compartment revealed by pulling out a book. There is also an opening in the back which reveals the hallway to the power plant, although it is not hidden when you find it.
