I will discuss recent progresses on the inclusion of dense matter effects in parton shower event generators. In particular, I will investigate the implementation of medium-modified splitting functions within the HERWIG algorithm. The results on transverse momentum, energy and angular distributions exhibit a remarkable impact of medium effects and are in qualitative agreement with the jet quenching observations.
