Game release: “Tandem: A Tale of Shadows” (PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch)

Monochrome Paris and Hatinh Interactive‘s puzzle-platformer Tandem: A Tale of Shadows brings some wonderful sights from various gameplay perspectives close to Halloween.

The game I quickly had a look at during gamescom digital 2021 is about Emma and her teddy Bear Fenton who want to find out why the famous magician Thomas Kane has disappeared in his mansion, and the only way to do this is to walk between realms of light and shadows. Obviously inspired by filmmaker Tim Burton, but also Victorian writers like Jules Vernes and Conan Doyle, the amazing presentation is both magical and a bit scary.

While switching between two realities isn’t particularly new (as can be seen with Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams), changing their perspectives is. So one sees Emma’s perception of the world in a top-down and Fenton’s alternate reality (created by the girl’s shadows) in a side-scrolling view. This requires both platforming as well as puzzle solving skills, as the duo work in tandem to unravel the secret of the mansion.

The game is out now on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch with a 30% launch discount that lasts until October 28, 2021, at 1 PM UTC (with the Xbox One and Xbox One Series versions coming soon). The soundtrack is also available with the same discount and can be bought separately.
