Luka Horvat started the development of MeAndMyShadow on April 29th 2009. He finished the game in under one month, about 25 days. The game was written to learn the programming concepts polymorish, inheriance and friendship. Luka released the game as an .exe, making it closed source and Windows only.
On 29 January 2011 Omer Bahri Gordebak planned to make a clone of the game for Linux. Surprisingly the original author open sourced the game under GNU GPL. After this more people started contribute the project.
