Shadowman Wiki

The Cadeaux (French for "gifts") are items that appear in the game Shadow Man and its sequel, Shadow Man: 2econd Coming.

Cadeaux are small ceremonial pots that can be used to increase Shadow Man's Shadow Display meter by one unit. They are offerings to the Loa for a "Spiritual trade for life beyond" as said by Shadow Man. In both games, he will start off with 5 units for the meter and can be eventually increased to 10. In the game Shadow Man, there are 500 pots to collect. As Shadow Man, Michael must bring them to the Temple of Life in the Wastelands of Deadside before 5 shrines each taking 100 each. A shrine that has already been offered a set amount will show 1 pot on top of it.

In 2econd Coming, the cadeaux are offered to 2 shrines located under the Homfront church in Louisiana. In addition to offering health, they will increase Micheal/Shadow Man's voodoo powers as well (replacing the Dark Soul method from the previous game). Rather than offering 100 at a time, it's cut to 10 for each offering increasing voodoo power and health meters by one unit depending on which shrine the offer is being made to (red glow for health, yellow glow for voodoo powers). After offering the cadeaux to each shrine 5 times each, they will become inactive.

In Shadow Man Remastered, there are 666 to collect in the game. Doing this will unlock an achievement called Cadeaux Collector. As of Version 1.4 update all 666 Cadeaux are needed for a door behind a new level 10 coffin gate in the Fogometers.

  12. Now go into the underwater tunnel to the right, the one lit by a small lamp. Watch your breath, Mike has many talents, holding his breath more than five second is not one of them. In this tunnel, there is a cadeau. You can't really miss it. (17)
  13. After that, you will end up in a big lake filled with crocodiles. They are a real pain this early in the game, taking nineteen to twenty shots to die. So be very careful and don't let them get close to you, they will kill you in two seconds. If you manage to get rid of them, behind the submerged house in the distance, a single cadeaux is hidden at the bottom of the lake. (18)
  14. Backtrack a bit and go into the other house, it will lead you to a small dried pond with three crocodiles. Just avoid them, they're not that dangerous on land. Continue until you reach a cave, watch out for the dogs. In this cave, there is a cadeaux. (19)

  16. Drop down and go all the way for the church again, however, stop when you find the first white building. There are barrels blocking its access, now you can destroy them. Do so, and it will reward you with two cadeaux. (21 & 22)
  17. Now go back to the first dried pond where a sunken boat is located. On the side of the boat, there are planks. Destroy them, giving you access to a hole. Drop down into it, you will find a total of three cadeaux in there. There is a sneaky one hidden behind boxes, don't let it trick you. (23, 24, & 25)
  18. Now go back to the building behind the church and drop down the hole again, this time instead of going into the right underwater tunnel you will go into the left one. It will lead you to a small gap you can cross by climbing on a rope. Across the gap are two small houses, there is a cadeaux in the one that isn't destroyed. (26)
  19. So far, these are the 26 cadeaux you can get this early in the game. In order to get the last six, you will need l'Eclipser, an item that you won't have in your possession until reaching Shadow level 7 (51 Dark Souls or so). Nevertheless, if you already have it, you can get these two cadeaux by using the Baton on the altar near the church. (27 & 28)
  20. And lastly, you will need the Calabash to reach the last four cadeaux of this level. This item requires Shadow level 9 (95 Dark Souls). Locate the Vévé near the church (right next to the altar where you used the Baton) and blow it up with the Calabash. Continue down this area and you will stumble upon your last cadeaux.
