Announcement Free Game Release Game Release Shale Hill Secrets

Hey guys, we hope you’re all keeping well!

The time has come. We are delighted to announce that the first free release of Shale Hill Secrets is here for everyone to play!

This is a big one. We’re releasing the first FIVE episodes of the game for free. These episodes include six separate updates spanning well over a year of development, so we’re talking at least a good 10+ hours of gameplay all at once, depending on how fast you read of course.

Also, to give you a little taste of what Patrons experience in the bonus scenes, we’re including some exciting things for you all to check out in the Bonus Scenes Gallery – don’t be shy and take a good look there! 😉

A lot of hard work has gone into making this game, so if you did enjoy it and haven’t already, we would really appreciate it if you considered supporting us on Patreon. Here you can gain instant access to the next episode, all previously released bonus scenes and access to new episodes the second they drop!

Steam Version

We’ve been promising some news on the Steam release of Shale Hill Secrets for a couple of months, but unfortunately this planned project has suffered some unexpected delays, including things outside of our reach. This is our first time exploring Steam, so we are taking the time now to make sure we’re doing everything correctly.

Right now, we are still exploring ways to solve these issues so that we can finally publish a solid and perfect version of Shale Hill Secrets on the Steam platform. Originally, we planned to make available these five episodes on Steam first, but we don’t currently have a timeframe of when this will be resolved – meaning we have made the decision to release these episodes for free in the meantime through

Once we have a clearer picture of this release, we will update all of you here and explain a little more what we have planned. For now, we encourage everyone to wishlist Shale Hill Secrets directly on Steam, so you can get alerted when it’s finally ready!

Thank you. But is it possible to make a "play in browser" version for the game. Would very much appreciate it.

It's not no. With this game, we decided to move completely offline. HTML5 games were very limiting and when having the game fully offline, we have a lot more freedom with features!

Hello, I have trouble with the text input pop in, whatever the case, the input does not update. And I can't even launch it since I can't set a name for MC. I (would like to) play the android version, I already had this problem with DfD on chrome but not on Firefox

hey i wonder where the save files are located to in android?

 by Spidey in July 3, 2022

Hey guys👋🏻, I really appreciate and loved your previous two games! And also downloaded the 5 episodes of this SHS too! I have a doubt, so when you make the next couple of episodes free, will the file be from Ch 1- *current episode* or will it be from Ch 6 - *current episode* ? I am new to these Visual novels and have downloaded a few and I don't know how it'll work for the next upcoming episodes. Btw, Huge Fan, if possible, would've been a Patreon, but unfortunately couldn't. 😐 I'll always love you and the Entire Team of the current and the previous games!!

Hey, Team of SHS👋🏻 I have downloaded the 5 Episodes of this and yet to play, seriously loved your previous games DFD and DH2!! But I have a doubt, since now that you have released the first 5 episodes, in the future, how will release the next couple of episodes? Like, will it be from Ep 1- *current episode* or will it be Ep 6- *current episode* ? I am new to the downloading and playing visual novel games, cause I have only played the play in browser ones. Btw, Big Fan of the three games, seriously love you guys and the People behind this, the Entire team, infact. Wish I would be one of your Patreons, but unfortunately couldn't be. 😔 Anyway, I can patiently wait for more!!

Hey! When we next release an episode for free, you'll just download the new version and be able to continue from your current progress. The download will always be the full version, meaning you can download the new one whenever it comes and delete the previous one (your progress will be safe, it is stored elsewhere!)

Just checking if my comment reached.

oh man i'm loving how similar some of these characters are to the ones from DH, though still having their own unique defining characteristics, too.. can't wait to learn more about valerie 🤤
