In an announcement from Shadowplay Studios, it has been revealed that the upcoming puzzle platformer Projection: First Light will be coming to to the PlayStation 4 in mid-2018.

According to the developers of the game, Projection is slated to release on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in Q2 2018, launching simultaneously alongside the PC and Mac versions of the game. More on Projection: First Light from the studio:

Projection: First Light follows the adventures of Greta, a girl living in a mythological shadow puppet world, as she embarks on a journey of self-enlightenment with the assistance of legendary heroes from each culture she explores.

Accompanied by atmospheric visuals and an ethereal soundtrack made with antique instruments used for shadow puppet performances, Projection: First Light takes players on an inclusive voyage through the history of shadow puppets as it evolves through Indonesia, China, Turkey, Greece, and 19th century England.

Early in her expedition, Greta takes control of a source of light and learns of her ability to manipulate it. Shadows become platforms and walls, other elegant and imaginative solutions irradiate puzzles, and enemies can be dispersed – as Projection: First Light explores themes of worldliness, respect and understanding.

To ensure accuracy and beauty in the art of shadow puppetry, Shadowplay Studios consulted with Richard Bradshaw, a renowned Australian puppeteer and historian of his craft, whose insights helped Shadowplay Studios highlight the cultures behind shadow puppets through the ages.

Projection: First Light is slated for a Q2 2018 release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch.
