Shadowy platformer A Walk in the Dark now on Steam

Indie platformer A Walk in the Dark is now available on Steam. Priced at $6.99, the game has players leaping around lethal obstacles in shadowy levels as a cat named Bast, searching for its owner Arielle.

The game draws apt comparisons to other challenging platformers like Limbo, VVVVVV and Super Meat Boy, as each game was a key influence for developer Flying Turtle. Similar to Limbo, the platformer includes "gravity inversion" mechanics in some levels, and seen in the screen above, a rather nefarious-looking spider. A Walk in the Dark was among a group of 100 games that were granted distribution on Steam thanks to Valve's Greenlight service in August.
