One of the nice side effects of a trip to a convention like NYCC is that you get to shake hands and rub elbows with more people in the industry, and that means more juicy video game news for you. Case in point, this tasty tidbit we’ve been given regarding Hudson’s upcoming Wii game, Lost In Shadow.
The gameplay is fairly unique. A puzzle platformer, this game sets itself apart by casting you in the role of a shadow. There are plenty of platforms and such in the foreground, and you’d think that you’d be using them just like any other platform game, but since you are just a silhouette, it isn’t the platform you stand on, but its shadow. The puzzle aspect comes in when you need to shift lights to stretch and shift the shadows and help you reach inaccessible areas. Pretty neat, huh?
Here are the first two chapters of a documentary on the making of the game.
The game launches January 4th, 2011 for the Wii. You can learn more at www.lostinshadow.com, and checkout the screenshots below.
