Five New Images Showcase Contrast's Vaudevillian World

Developer Compulsion Games has offered five new screens for its upcoming film-noir and vaudeville-inspired 1920s puzzle platformer, Contrast.

The game places players in the shoes of Dawn, the imaginary friend of Didi. She is a young girl coping with a traumatic event with Dawn's help. Shadows play in an important role in the game, as Dawn can turn into one herself to reach new areas by traveling along the shadows cast by other objects.

  • Well, damned if this doesn't look interesting.

    This was one of my fave games at E3, from art design to gameplay to story, it looks to be a winner. Looking forward to more info.

    New one to add to my list next to Puppeteer!
  • I've been watching this game for a while. I can't wait for it. The shadow mechanic is so interesting and I love the game's vibe.

  • I must have missed this one. Looks pretty neat.

  • Looking forward to this game for quite some time. Happy to see how it's shaping up.

  • seems pretty interesting

  • Looks Incredible.

  • Looking awesome so far.

  • the more i see of this game, the more i want to play it. i love a strong visual style, and this has it in spades.

  • I really like this animation.  it is something different and very appealing.  can't wait to learn more.

  • I like the art style.  Of course, I've always preferred a stylized art direction over realistic ones when it comes to games.

  • Nice.

  • How did I miss this game at E3?  Looks great!

  • OOooooh this sure looks lovely..

  • I should calculate this into my schedule and budget.

  • The art style is incredible. Hopefully the gameplay turns out just as good as the game looks. Another upcoming game that looks great is Puppeteer for PS3. Contrast reminds me a bit of that game for some reason and I am looking forward to both. Also, the upcoming PSN game, Rain. It's just good to know that developers can still push out some original ideas every now and again.

  • Looks super unique, very 'dishonored with a splash of puppets and color'
