on May 24, 2013 11:17 AM

A little while back we announced that Compulsion games were bringing there surreal 1920’s puzzle platformer Contrast to the PC, via Steam. Now, with a partnership between Compulsion and Focus Home Interactive, the game will also arrive to the PSN and XBLA by the end of this year.

A few statements were released about the partnership:

“CONTRAST is a very special project with its atmosphere, artistic direction and innovative gameplay and we knew that from the moment we saw the game,” said Cédric Lagarrigue, CEO of Focus Home Interactive. “We are delighted to be partnering with Compulsion Games and believe this project to be one of the biggest indie surprises of the year.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with FOCUS to bring CONTRAST to the public. With all the effort and dedication the team has poured into this project, we feel we have found the partner that understands and fully embraces the creative artistry we have instilled in our game,” stated Guillaume Provost, creative director and founder at Compulsion Games. “FOCUS’s strong international presence, their experienced team and their unique understanding of CONTRAST make them the ideal partner to communicate the game’s vision to a worldwide audience.”

Contrast puts games into the shoes of Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl named Didi. Dawn can shift between the 3D world and a 2D shadowverse, to get past obstacles and explore a world of vaudevillain cabaret singers, circus performers, and illusionists. Players will also be tasked with manipulating light sources in the 3D world in order to bypass obstacles in the shadowverse. As Dawn uses her special abilities to uncover the mysteries of the world, she’ll help Didi unravel the mystery and secrets of the world.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the trailer. There’s no specific word on when the game will arrive to consoles, but we do know it should be arriving soon to PCs.
