Back at PAX, Sean got the inside scoop on Contrast, an upcoming downloadable title about a little girl named Didi and her imaginary friend Dawn, who can shift into the world of shadows. Through this PAX encounter, we learned that the game will be a puzzle platformer in which the pair work together to save the circus Didi’s father (Johnny) is operating.
Thanks to a press release sent to us by the publisher, we have some new information about the game. First off, we now know why the circus is in dire need of saving. Apparently, the business is going under and Johnny has made some sort of business arrangement with a group of shady characters in order to keep it a float but there’s a catch. He needs the help of a popular magician known as the Great Vincenzo in order to draw an audience and Vincenzo may not be too trust worthy himself. So in other words, Johnny’s in some hot water and his daughter is going to have to keep him from boiling.
This brings me to the new screenshots that have been sent our way, which reveal two of the levels, one being the circus and the other being Vincenzo’s workshop. The objective of each level will be for Didi to guide Dawn thorough different areas, while taking advantage of her invisible friend’s shadow abilities to discover hidden secrets.
Lastly, we’ve been informed that Contrast will launch on PC, XBLA for Xbox 360, and PSN for both PS4 and PS3 on November 15. Pricing however will be announced at a later date.
