    For those that know me, it's very rare that I even show an interest in an upcoming game, but in this case that's exactly the case: An platformer called "In the Shadows" that's due to be released on Steam and GOG by the end of this month.

    The seemingly first outing by Colorspace Studios is a platformer that goes for a "2Deep4You" angle by seemingly telling the story of a man who delves into his childhood to resolve issues, and this translates into a puzzle-platformer with a story.

    Here's the trailer:



    Right off the bat I'm seeing signs of FEZ (for game design) and Lakeview Cabin (for graphical style) and a few other games I can't name at the moment (*reasons*) but here are strong puzzle elements involving light sources. Also, neutralizing enemies so that they become beneficial items in this manner is a rarity.

    I'll happily admit that this could amount to being a nothingburger, but at least I think that it deserves a chance.

    Thoughts?

    Definitely looks like bottom shelf 2Deep4U indie garbage with retarded faux retro pixelwork, didn't make enough of an impression to get past my cynicism.
