The game is a puzzle adventure starring a little girl and her shadow. The concept is that you can swap between the girl and her shadow at any time to solve challenges and find solutions. If you can’t tackle an obstacle as the girl, perhaps the shadow can handle it. Many of the conundrums involve light, darkness, and perspective switching. The game’s watercolor aesthetic keeps things quite dreamlike as you discover new environments and strange mysteries.
Focus Home Interactive announced the partnership with Douze-Dixièmes earlier this year in October.
“Supporting the French indie game development scene has long been a part of the Focus DNA, and is an important aspect of our strategy. So it’s with great pleasure that we announce this new partnership,” declared John Bert, COO at Focus Home Interactive. “It was immediately apparent that the Douze-Dixièmes team shares our values, and we are more than excited to start a new adventure with such a talented team.”
