Contrast Trailer Is Full of Nostalgia and Mystery

By Masoud House

April 5, 2013

Contrast–Compulsion Games surreal 1920s puzzle platformer–is a unique blend of genres. Both 2D and 3D, both a puzzler and a platformer, both a period piece setting and a dark dreamscape, it all comes together to tell the story of Didi, a young girl whose family is wrapped tightly in a mystery full of secrets and mystery.

The game puts players into the shoes of Dawn, who can shift between the 3D landscape and the 2D shadowscape to explore her world, complete missions, and dive deeper into a world of vaudevillian cabaret singers, circus performers, and illusionists. Players will at times need to manipulate light sources to effectively traverse the shadowverse, and will reveal the story behind Contrast by “bringing light into the world.”

You can check out the trailer below; Contrast is set to launch in May to the PC, via Steam.

Born and raised in video games and "geek culture," Masoud has been bred off of fantasy worlds his entire life and doesn't see anything wrong with that. He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
