It's been a while since our first look at Contrast. Though the news on the upcoming platformer has been slim, Contrast has not gone unnoticed, as it looks to be a unique addition bridging the gap between current and next-generation consoles. Now, Compulsion Games offers up a new trailer that reveals more about its heroine, Didi.
Didi is a young girl who is struggling to understand her parents. To cope with adult situations beyond her control, she creates and befriends an imaginary figure by the name of Dawn. Players can solve puzzles and platforming obstacles by playing as Dawn, as Didi watches.
Dawn can climb across silhouettes of strategically placed objects. She can even take the form of a shadow, expertly maneuvering through the dark streets of a setting that's part vaudeville, part film noire.
"You're growing up fast— you used to be scared of the dark," Didi's father remarks in the trailer. Little does he know, darkness and shadows may have become her greatest allies.
If Contrast interests you, be sure to check out editor Kim Wallace's feature on upcoming under-the-radar titles, as Contrast is one of eight titles she mentions. Who knows? You may find other hidden gems to splurge on in the coming months.
Contrast will be coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 4.
