Shallow is a Z-machine work of interactive fiction written with Inform 7 and is © 2012 by Austin Eady.

In this empty work, your character could be anyone in a bottomless void with shifting voices and swirling colours. There's three locations of static prose and nothing else.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the work.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of a work of interactive fiction. Please make an honest effort to play the work before reading this walkthrough.

A Dark Presence

Honestly, that seems to be it. Three rooms with a lot of text describing chaotic scenes, but there's nothing to actually interact with. This would have been better rendered as a triptych of paintings instead of interactive fiction.
