DescriptionA Quiver of Crows is Sheado.net's twin-stick shmup about crows who fight demons in order to restore peace in a land bewitched by a sinister darkness. During the journey, the crows obtain an arsenal of great magic to battle their foes. Some of the environmental elements can be used to your advantage in defeating the enemies.
After developing Furdiburb and Eras of Alchemy for the mobile platform, we wanted to take what we've learned and create a game that pushes our abilities to the fullest. For this game, we decided to move away from our trend of casual games and make a twin-stick action shooter. It's been quite an exciting challenge and a struggle because of the new territory.
- 26 stages of fast-paced action
- 360-degree twin-stick chaos!
- Local / couch co-op so you don't have to go it alone
- Upgradable weapons, bombs, and shields
- Unique environments and ragdoll physics not common in shmups
- Play using controller or keyboard & mouse
- An ending song by Laura Shigihara (Plants vs Zombies composer and sound engineer)

A Quiver of Crows Credits
As with most small companies, we wear many hats. These are our primary roles, but each of us had a part with the game’s design, direction, writing, customer support, etc.
At age 7 his father brought home a Sinclair 1000 with a 16K ram expansion module - quite an amazing thing that was to Chad. He spent his entire summer inches away from the family television as he copied and played computer games from the Sinclair instruction manual. By the end of the summer, Chad needed glasses and was well on his way to becoming a video game developer. Eventually he earned a masters degree in computer science and worked in video conferencing and dabbled in robotics before moving on to video games. “I’ve always been fascinated by multimedia and artificial intelligence and the possibilities of combining both to produce something anybody can appreciate - such as Furdi!” Chad’s favorite games include Super Mario Brothers, Mario Kart, Street Fighter II,Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max, Shadow of the Colossus, 007 (for Nintendo 64), Halo, Gears of War, Limbo, and Super Meat Boy.
Danny is the art department at Sheado.net. Inspired by the "Superflat" art movement marked by artists such as Takashi Murakami and Chiho Aoshima, he strives to bring this happy yet dark style to video games. He also holds close Wabi aesthetics, and you can easily pick up on these influences in Furdiburb; Nature, whimsy, and colorful yet eerie environments. His favorite game is Tales of Symphonia which he sometimes rambles about - to everyone's puzzled looks. Other favorites of his include Shadow of the Colossus, Katamari Damacy, Mass Effect, Red Dead, Harvest Moon, and some of the old school games like Kyrandia and King's Quest. Danny also has a diploma in business administration which he may or may not have folded into a paper plane, or an origami frog.
Alice’s gaming experience first started when, ignoring her whiny wishes for a Nintendo, her parents brought home a Sega Genesis. Her father said that the only reason they even bought the console was to get her interested in computers. She did, and also got addicted to video games. Because her parents refused to buy her any more games, she relished in playing the same games over and over again, pushing herself to improve as a player. She enjoys a wide range of games “but I’m not into sports or flight sim games”. Following her childhood patterns, she prefers to “play the heck” out of what few games she has. Favorite games? Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Okami, Silent Hill, Left 4 Dead, Odin Sphere, Diablo II, Shadow of Colossus, and Plants vs. Zombies. She currently plays World of Warcraft. She majored in computer science but worked in the financial field for several years before returning to her old flame.
