The shadow-orientated puzzler inadvertently took the limelight last month, when it replaced the delayed Driveclub as one of the PS Plus launch games on PS4. That means it'll be free to Plus subscribers along with Housemarque's Resogun, when the console dances its way onto retail shelves later this week.
WHEN SHADOWS FALL - NEW CONTRAST STILLS RELEASED
CONTRAST, the platform/puzzler developed by Compulsion Games for PC, the PlayStation®Store and Xbox LIVE® Arcade, is set to emerge from the shadows on 15 November 2013. To celebrate, four new stills have been released of Dawn and Didi interacting with the stunning, 1920s film noir-inspired world.
In CONTRAST, you take on the role of Dawn, the imaginary friend of Didi, an independent, adventure-loving nine year-old girl hoping to reunite her parents. As you spend time with Didi, you will cast light on a shadowy story, exploring an adult world as seen through the eyes of this little girl.
Play as Dawn and manipulate light sources to distort, enlarge or stretch the 2D shadowscape, and combine that with your shadow shifting powers to help solve the many puzzles surrounding Didi's troubled family. Delivering a captivating ambiance of the brilliance of film noir mixed with the tease of burlesque and infusing an original, sultry jazz soundtrack, CONTRAST enthrals with every plot twist.
PC players can pre-purchase the Collector's Edition of CONTRAST on Steam now. In addition to an exceptional discount of 25%, Steam players will receive exclusive bonuses including the Original Sound Track composed of 15 music tracks from the game, and a special CONTRAST Programme containing 52 pages of never-before-seen artwork.
CONTRAST is released 15 November 2013 on PC and Xbox LIVE® Arcade. The game is released on PS3's PSN on November 19 in U.S. and November 20 in Europe. Contrast is also released on PS4 on November 15 in U.S., and November 29 in Europe.
