Ah—it's good to catch up with Contrast again, especially after the swank cabaret show that was its first trailer. Now the indie platformer's venturing out of the dark again, this time with a handful of screenshots demonstrating its vaudevillian flair.


Contrast is a dual-world light-and-shadow platformer

Well, this sure is an oddball thing: Contrast has squished noir together with a vaguely circus-like aesthetic, and it actually kind of works. This good-looking platformer plays on light and shadow in the literal sense—you'll be able to run around normally one moment, and in the next, switch to the world of shadow to reach areas not otherwise within reach.
