Color Space Studios has confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that they will be bringing In the Shadows to PlayStation 4 in 2017.
The main thrust of the gameplay is solving puzzles that revolve around light and darkness. Some monsters turn into objects for use when in the light, but will revert to their monster form in the dark.
Along the way you will be collecting stars that allow for progression and unlocking secrets. Despite the 2D perspective the game world is in 3D to create depth, and shadows are created in real time depending on the lighting of the level.
In The Shadows was submitted to Steam Greenlight in March and approved in seven days. The project also has a Kickstarter campaign currently ongoing with 27 days to go and $2,647 of its $9,283 goal pledged.
