Rochester New York, January 7, 2021 - Developer #possumhousegames is thrilled to reveal the new trailer for their upcoming game Shot in the Dark coming for Windows PCs January 12, 2021.

Watch the trailer here. Shot in the Dark is a classic western tale that pits a lone bandit on a trail of vengeance against demons, cultists and other horrors hiding in the dark. It offers a unique challenge by combining a nail-biting pixel-perfect platformer with precise point and click shooting. Be on the lookout for glowing red eyes, shadows moving through the trees, and figures lurking in the night before they can strike. The only sign of a demon on your trail is the slight movement of the tall grass and sometimes all you can do is take a shot in the dark.
