Moon Shadow is a free, open source iOS app that distorts reality into a wormhole of colourful, glitchy adventure. This is done by blending a live video feed with a series of generative video shader effects on different portions of the image selected by color matching. The concatenation of unique, non-deterministic effects creates a unique representation of the users perspective.
The collection of nice effects in Moon Shadow are a result of a community effort. Graphic artist collaborators were invited to write shaders to be included in the app. These artists include Cale Bradbury (@netgrind), Devin Horsman (@horsman), Yancy Way (@echophons), and Rob Butler (@BoTreats).
There are no in app purchases. Instead, there is a cheat menu that unlocks new features and effects. Cheat codes can be found throughout the app and get hints by following @moonshadowapp on Twitter.
Moon Shadow is an experiment by Connor Bell, but wouldn't have been possble with the collaborators mentioned above. This Connor's second major app release after Glitch Wizard, which he created with his friend Allan Lavell.
