Color Space Studio has announced that its upcoming puzzle platformer, In the Shadows, will release for the PlayStation 4 in 2017. Making the announcement on the PlayStation blog, creator Nicolas Temese revealed that the developer has been working on the game for more than a year.
Described as a “deeply emotional story about fighting fears,” In the Shadows touches upon real life subjects such as seeing things with different perspectives, and comforts of everyday life. The game’s premise is as follows:
In The Shadows tells the story of a man who daydreams of memories taking place in a forgotten imaginary world from his youth. His adult life has stalled and he escapes to this world to piece together events from his past. Something has been lost or forgotten — there is a void that needs to be filled. With each memory he relives, the man finds more clues.
Players will use light to scare away shadow monsters at night. According to Temese, the puzzles are developed in such a way that it enables the game to progress at a “comfortable pace.” “Each of these monsters has a purpose. For each obstacle, for each fear, there is a solution,” he explained.
