Shale Hill Secrets is a game about a guy who stumbles upon a great deal of power – he sees into people’s private lives. He uses it to help others, but also uses it to develop personal relationships with people that would’ve been difficult otherwise. The deeper he goes down the rabbit hole, the more likely he is to encounter the real powers that puppeteer his fate and those of his classmates.

With Shale Hill Secrets, we have made the decision to move away from a monthly release schedule. We know many will be disappointed by this, but we have no doubt in the long run that players will be greater rewarded. This move enables us to add more exciting features and bring less linear gameplay to you, as being web based came with a bunch of limitations that wouldn’t allow us to expand. Right now, we are aiming to release a new content update every 6/8 weeks to patrons, free releases are to be determined.

The only supported platform is Windows (64-bit only). The game should run in any up-to-date system with Windows 8 or newer. However, we recommend Windows 10 since that’s what we use for development and testing. We are currently working on Mac and Android versions of the game.

System Requirements:
CPU: Any modern dual-core CPU
RAM: 4GB of RAM
Video: Intel HD 4400 or better (with up-to-date drivers! The GPU must be compatible with DirectX 11)
OS: Windows 8 or newer (64-bit only)

Please email any potential issues you might encounter to [email protected] or preferably on our Discord channel (bug-report section). Note that you might see a black window for a while until the game loads.
