Contrast Will Stick To The Shadows On PlayStation 4
While not appearing during the PlayStation E3 briefing in LA last week, Contrast was available in a PlayStation 4 demo unit on the show floor and is now being paraded around on the PlayStation Blog.
Coming from the team at Compulsion, Contrast actually began life as a cyberpunk adventure before making the jump to film noir/burlesque, according to Compulsion's Guillaume Provost.
In the game, the player takes on the role of Dawn, a woman who has the ability to become one with the shadows. Whether she's stopping a murder or helping a bunch of circus performers get their attractions together, she's do so on a canvas of constantly moving, growing and shifting shadows. If you'll check out the above video, I think you'll agree that it looks pretty neat in practice.
“There are a lot of innovative gameplay ideas hovering in the indie game community,” Guillaume said. “But we're not just delivering a new game idea. We're carefully weaving a story, world and aesthetic around it to make something really special and unique.”
To find out how “unique” and “different” it is, we might have to wait a while, as Contrast will be launching on the PlayStation 4. Given the game's indie nature, there's a pretty decent chance that mean's we'll actually be seeing it at a less-than-60-dollar price point on the PlayStation Network, rather than in disc form.
