I played this right after getting done with Cozy and I was not disappointed with this amazing spiritual follow up. The visuals were simply incredible, atmosphere was foreboding, and the story was intriguing. All of these factors made for a terrific experience, thanks for that by the way, and I hope you keep up the awesome work.

The story was wonderful, the art was great, and for the most part, the game was relatively easy to figure out. Only part that slowed me up was needing to find a flat surface to make a distraction. It didn't exactly click to me that the flipped vehicle was considered a flat surface. But when everything came together, it really was an awesome experience I'd for sure recommend!

Great work!

This was pretty cool, I enjoyed it!

I had a great time playing this game ! Just the right amount of puzzle-difficulty and creepy stuff that I needed today!

Excellent job !

Hello, I'm a playful user of this game. By the way, a streamer is planning to play this game soon, can you translate it into Korean? I'd appreciate it if you could.

Not bad, not bad at all. The graphics were in the realm of pleasing, in fact that was one of the reasons I chose to play this game. I had one good actual jump scare that put a little jolt through my heart... and that was all I needed to be impressed. Although the whole time I am going deeper and deeper into the mine, I cannot understand why I would be so stupid? It worked out I guess..... Oh wait it didn't...

Thanks Dude... that was awesome!

This is such an improvement upon Cozy. Graphically it's gorgeous, the amount of detail and work put into this really draws you into the world. The horror factor is about equivalent to cozy, once again succeeding in making the player feel nervous about what might happen than about what is happening.

A great game. 

i love this game wonderful atmosphere and story

Here's my playthrough for anyone curious

That was awesome! Great puzzles, beautiful art work and top notch sound design/music. Thank you very much for the game! Here's my little playthrough (Polish language) Cheers! 

Great experience!  Logical puzzles, excellent art, creepy sound, and good scares.  I loved it!

I ain't gonna lie, I had no idea how to enter the mine so I was just going back and fourth for 10 minutes trying to figure it out and still didn't know how :( But I was absolutely terrified when the car crashed, I hate horrors but for some reason I wanted to continue playing this game! Too bad I'm stooooopid and couldn't figure out how to get into the mine -.-

Call me Hamilton, 'cause I be.

Wow, we should subscribe to this guy, he looks good

Oh hey, don't I know you two? I like your stuff regardless. Maybe we could game together sometime. :{)

You look kinda familiar, but it might just be a coincidence... I've heard of this game, "undercooked" or something, it sounds like a good collab possibility ;)

That would be super cool! So long as you're not one of those people who get aroused under stress...

Feeling kinda attacked rn,  but it's having a weird effect on me... o.O

8/10

I really enjoyed this game! Honestly scared me! 9/10! Here's my gameplay

Just a heads up to the developer, MacOS no longer supports x86_32 applications. This won’t run on modern Macs.

(+1)

a small "problem": This build doesn't seen to support 4:3 aspect ratios by default which is the resolution of my monitor, set at 1024x768. Don't ask. Anyway, I had to customly create a 1366x768 resolution which has a 16:9 aspect ratio  to be able to use the keycard in the back door for accessing the radio, otherwise the screen simply cuts the borders like a DVD would from a standard 16:9 cinema resolution, for example. Other than that was able to finish this game.

I wish there were more games like this one. :/

Sad I can't play this because my computer said it needed to be updated but all the pictures look good and the creature looks terrifying. Great game from the looks of it.

that is because Apple's most recent OS update (Catalina) killed all support for 32-bit applications including hundreds if not thousands of games 

I love this game soooo much! I've made this playthrough and it was hella fun and spooky!

Something tells me the creature was just one of the lost miners gone rogue...

Such a fun spooky point and click. I really love the atmosphere. I did get stuck for bit, but thats my own stupidity of overlooking something. Loved to see more from you.

Fun little game. Pretty simple and not overly involved. Atmospheric with some very creepy moments. Nice quick diversion if you've got half hour to an hour to kill.

J'ai du mal pour la mine. Je suis entré mais je tourne en rond et revient toujours à l'entrée.

La traduction canadien est amusante !

My wife and I loved playing through this together! Nice job :)

Really enjoyed playing this game, took me back to the old days of point and click. Some of the best horror movies and games work on suspense and atmosphere rather than cheap jump scares and slashing, and that's what I love about this game. We know there is something out there, but it's not in our face every second. The puzzles were good, although I did derp a little at times. I would love to see more.

 

Hi there, I am a youtuber and I hope I can get some support from members of the public by liking and subscribing to my channel. 

SHIVER is a great point and click game with a decent storyline. The atmosphere and graphics are really good for this game and I will give you a thumbs up for that. However, I felt that there was a lack of an intriguing story in the game and the monster in the game wasn't seen very often and I really want to know the origin of the creature and where the creature come from. Furthermore, there are some parts of the puzzle where I believe that members of the public will face problems with due to a lack of information given for some parts especially the ending to put the fireworks on the car. Overall, its a great game and I look forward to play more horror games produced by the creators. Thank you.

20-40 minutes, depending on how much common sense you have. We took 60.

This game is spooky, great artwork as well.

Scared the bejeesus outta me XD and I loved every second

Loved the atmosphere of this game! Very well done!

Such a great game you have made it kept me until the end, that my friend is a game well made. Amazing job 

Amazing, very spooky would play again 10/10

Even though I technically *tried* to play this game before, it still scared me and I still think this is a well-made game!

Had fun trying out this point and click style game!  

Enjoyed playing. Nicely atmospheric and good visuals. Puzzles were not too hard and just at the right level to keep me engaged. Well done to the creators.



Well this was pretty excellent.

I haven't seen many horror games doen in this first-person point and click style, but everything about Shiver works. From the (few) brief jumpscares, the visual style and the overall creepiness to even small, subtle changes that emphasize a mood (Don't think I didn't notice that the transfer between screens is different after you find the mysteirous "nest" in the mines).


Granted, while I admit in the video that I just missed some fairly obvious hints, I do feel like some of the last few points of progression suddenly require a completely different mindset than everything else has so far, but it doesn't at all detract from the experiene. Shiver is deightfully creepy story that sets the mood right from the very title. Brilliant work.

just to emphasize what many have already said; I can’t stress enough how nice it is to have a great atmospheric point-and-click horror game. We need more of this. 

I loved this game so much. I'm a little horrible at puzzles and trying to put things together but it wasn't too frustrating for me. I think it had a perfect amount of suspense and the art was wonderful. Thank you for making such a great game!
