New Contrast screens are stark & stylin'

Jun 28 // Steven Hansen    @dtoidsteven

The shadowy indie platformer struts its stuff

I fell for Contrast's Roaring Twenties, film noir meets Mediterranean architecture style when I caught its trailer during E3. Be sure to watch for the fabulous, jazzy, Ella Fitzgerald-inspired singing act, too. While I was never able to catch it on the show floor, our own Caitlin Cooke did, calling it "hands down the most unique game [she] played at E3."

So, I'm plenty excited. These new screens continue to show off Contrast's lovely aesthetic. Contrast is slated to come to PC, PS3 (PSN), and Xbox 360 (XBLA) by year's end, but according to the game's website, it will also be available for PS4 at launch. Maybe I'll break in the new system with a nice indie platformer.

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

One of the more original game premises in recent memory
