Contrast lets you solve puzzles in the 1920s as a shadow


6:30 PM on 09.05.2013



I hope Compulsion Games is able to build an audience for Contrast. While this may be a puzzle-platformer, its subject matter is darker, more adult than what you might normally associate with the genre. Caitlin and Spencer caught this shadowy PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One title at PAX Prime 2013. Spoiler: they liked it!

For long-time Dtoiders, the person excitedly yelling "You are here!" to Jonathan Holmes was Alex "Dyson" Ryan. Still cracking up.
