It's March 21, 1945. You’re a young navigator in the Royal Air Force. You’re flying in formation all headed for the same target: the Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen. But in the critical minutes leading up to the planned attack, a sudden explosion wreaks havoc and disorients you. Should you drop the bombs? And where should you drop them? Shadow is a realistic VR-experience based on the British air raid against the Shellhouse in Copenhagen, during which a calamity led to the accidental bombing of Institut Jeanne d’Arc. Shadow simulates the tragic event seen through the eyes of a young RAF-navigator.
