Shivers is a horror-adventure game by Sierra about a haunted museum full of ghosts called the Ixupi. The object of the game is to solve puzzles in order to find “vessels”, and use those vessels to capture the Ixupi. It was well-received on its release for its horror atmosphere and non-linear gameplay, which were deviations from Sierra’s standard format. However, it also received criticism for the excessive backtracking required in the endgame.
What makes Shivers unique is its game design premise. Each vessel is made up of two parts: the pot, and the “talisman” or lid. In order to complete the vessel, you need to match up each pot with the correct lid. However, every time you play the game, most of the items are randomly scattered around the museum. This means the game is almost entirely non-linear, and each time you play the game will be different. You’ll need to take a different path through the museum to find all the vessels and capture each Ixupi.
