Gather ‘round everyone, Shade’s Eve is here, to fill your dreary lives with joy and good cheer! Or maybe it’ll turn dreary to scared and afraid, as the festivities sour with the tale of Jack Shade. A menacing figure of allegorous ancestry—less about jump-scares and more about chemistry. Thought to have begun as a space-faring germ (with symptoms that’d make even ol’ Mondo Zax squirm) when a lone child emerged with apparent immunity, and created a vaccine for their entire community.
Over the years the story did change, the vaccine now an Angel and virus something more strange: a towering figure with teeth all askew, a hat that’s too tall and veins full of goo, and giant skeleton hands all the better for maiming (you can probably guess who we’re getting close to naming). That’s right all you children, your nightmares are true! Jack Shade’s finally here, and he’s come here for you.
Gather ‘round everyone, Shade’s Eve is almost here, to fill your dreary lives with joy and good cheer!
Here’s what we have planned for the final two months on Planet Nexus.
