Lunar Shadow Project Wikia

Selenic Shadow was a Cave Story mod created by Kim and Ariana Seymour (aka Cibryll). It was first released on June 13th, 2016 with an updated version released on 12th July 2016. The mod itself is non-canonical to the story set out in Lunar Shadow and has Selena Daria as the main character.


Selena Daria van der Merwe wakes up in a mysterious place and ends up following unknown people to find the answers she seeks. Along the way, she comes face to face with the guardians of Grei'dryr, an ancient civilization of magic and technology that was destroyed by three powerful shadows.

  • Version was released on 13 June 2016, while Version was released on 12 July 2016.
  • Ariana Seymour was actually one of Cibryll's many sockpuppets and the first one to be credited as a co-developer. 
  • Co-incidentally all of the characters in this game's MyChar file all have names beginning with "S"
  • Selenic Shadow reuses tilesets from The Curse of Il'landriiel, a mod created by Cibryll (as Shane). This explains why the grey brick tiles and the symbols exist in Selenic Shadow, why Selena Daria van der Merwe looks similar to her Shane: Hope of Frost counterpart or that both mods have rising water in one room (Kim learnt it from Cibryll).
