You see that artwork above for the indie game Contrast? it’s the perfect example of what you can expect to experience in the game. Publisher Focus Interactive and indie developer Compulsion Games have teamed up to announce an innovative and unique 2D/3D puzzle platformer. With games like Outland and Limbo touching on the subject of shadow and silhouettes, Contrast pushes the boundaries even further, as you can become one with the shadow in a 2D landscape, or be immersed in a 3D world.

In CONTRAST, experience and explore a surreal 1920’s dreamscape, set in a vaudevillian-inspired, film-noir styled backdrop. In a world full of performance, magic, intrigue and deception, the player takes on the role of Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl, Didi. Every kid’s imaginary friend is special, and Dawn is no exception. She has the power to shift from the reality of the vibrant game stage into the shadowy parallel world. Gamers will be challenged to unravel the drama by leveraging light sources and manipulating real-world objects to affect the shadows placement, depth, height and overall weighting to solve mind-bending puzzles.

Contrast will be available on PC, PSN and XBLA at the end of 2013.
