Contrast shadow-shifting onto XBLA, PSN and Windows PC in Q3 2013

New, 8 comments

Focus Home Entertainment will publish Compulsion Games' 2D/3D puzzle platformer, Contrast, on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Windows PC in Q3 2013.

Inspired by Pan's Labyrinth and Valve's Portal games, Contrast is set in a surreal 1920s dreamscape filled with cabaret singers, illusionists and circus performers. Gamers take on the role of Dawn, who must help a strange girl called Didi and uncover the secrets surrounding her family. Contrast lets players move in-between the 2D shadow world and the tangible 3D landscape, and manipulate shadows using light sources to uncover new story elements.

Contrast was Greenlit for Steam distribution in October last year and was originally slated to launch this month for Windows PC via Steam. For more information about Contrast, be sure to watch the teaser trailer and the beta gameplay video that demonstrates the protagonist's ability to shift into shadows.
