CONTRAST, the platform/puzzler developed by Compulsion Games for PC, the PlayStation®Store and Xbox LIVE® Arcade, was anything but 'hiding in the shadows' as the game was honored with numerous accolades, awards and nominations, including several BEST INDIE of E3 wins. Read the “Contrast E3 Round Up” on the official blog.
Featured in both SCEA and Focus Home Interactive's booths at E3 2013, hundreds of journalists and other industry professionals from around the world experienced an updated hands-on demo of CONTRAST, discovering the vaudevillian, film noir-inspired world infused by light and shadow play mechanics. Players took on the role of Dawn, an imaginary friend, in the oneiric universe fueled by Didi's imagination. Didi, an adventurous nine year old is hopeful of reuniting her parents as she uncovers truths and drama in this charming adventure. With stunning visuals complemented with an original jazz-based soundtrack featuring the rich, spell-binding voice of Laura Ellis.
I feel like I'm supposed to be excited about this, but to be honest I'm not. It's a side-scrolling action/puzzler with a neat setting and what appears to be average execution. Okay, sure, that's something I'll try, but I'm not excited.
