Über das Spiel

CONTRAST ist ein 2-D/3-D-Plattformspiel voller Rätsel, bei dem du binnen Sekundenbruchteilen aus einer fantastischen 3-D-Welt in ein mysteriöses schattenhaftes 2-D-Universum wechseln kannst. Tauche ein in eine surreale, traumgleiche Welt wie aus den 1920ern, inspiriert von Varieté und Film Noir und unterlegt mit atmosphärischem Jazz.

In diesem Universum, wo die Grenzen zwischen Schaustellerkunst, Magie, Intrigen und Täuschungen verschwimmen, übernimmst du die Rolle von Dawn, der unsichtbaren Freundin eines kleinen Mädchens namens Didi. Du hast die Fähigkeit, aus der fantastischen 3-D-Welt in die schattenhafte, zweidimensionale 2-D-Welt überzuwechseln, die untrennbar mit ihr verbunden ist. Bringe Licht in eine schattenhafte Geschichte, indem du in der 3-D-Welt Lichtquellen so geschickt platzierst, dass in der 2-D-Welt die Schatten verzerrt, vergrößert oder gestreckt werden. Im Mittelpunkt des Spiels steht der ständige Wechsel zwischen Licht und Schatten, durch den du die vielen Rätsel lösen kannst, die deine kleinen grauen Zellen auf eine harte Probe stellen werden!

If I could rate it with 6 numbers I would give a 3. This game is to short - has potenzial no question! The story is good but not very good, cause its like reading a book and then in the middle it stops. Its a sweet little original story. The thing with the shadows is nice too. Jump n run...Reminds me of Limbo - took me not much time to play it too, but I still like it.
The mucis of the game is quite good too - good atmosphere but really I wanted to have more - play longer...it really endet to fast. It only took me 4 hours. 4 hours!!! Oh my god to short xD give me damn more ;) The puzzles / the game concept is not that hard but I still like it. At the end this game is like a muse for me. It reminds me of a movie - pans labyrinth...I just thought about what I would write when I had to let the story go on...like the little girl grows older and can use the shadow walk too or she went in another dimension of another world... There are so many story related things that drift in my mind...I really wanted to have more. More of the music - more of the story content....Dun get me wrong I like that game but I am a critical person and I never hype a game. If you really are into adventure games its more than worth buying it. :)

Ok here is a game i have no problem in reccomending to anyone.
Great story,great graphics,great voice overs and a fantastic script all go towards making this game one that even though i have finished i will return to again and again as its play style is different enough and its story pulled me in to the point where i actually want to start from the begining right now.
The story is really mysterious as i was wondering who the main character was near enough all the way upto the ending (wont say as it will spoil the whole thing-but trust me i didnt think that she was who she was until the very ending),the whole atmosphere that this game creates puts you exactally where it aims to put you in the 1920s and really does do a good job with the music and graphics which really make you beleive the game takes place in that time period.The game play element of using the shadows as stepping stones and other means of progression works really well and at times some of the puzzles ivolving the shadows can get quite tricky (its been done before in some vein or other,but never this well),if i have one complaint its just that sometimes you think you have made a jump or climb and you feel that the game is somehow stopping you-but beleive me on closer inspection its either you havent set the puzzle up right or you are just mis timing your jumps (but it does feel like the game play mechanics are not working at that point but they are).
Like i have said the story is really good and is really about the little girl DIDI and her journey and how DAWN (your character) helps her progress through the levels and eventually to the conclusion of the story,that is both a facinating journey and an alltogether well rounded and well put together peice of entertainment.
I will say that the game is rather on the short side and unless you enjoy it as much as i did then after you finish it will be another game that will gather dust as its a single player game and when you finish you FINISH,but if like me you enjoy a good story with great gameplay and are looking for something a little different then go spend some time with this game and believe me you wont be dissapointed.

Contrast is amazing! Really incredible art, emotionally engaging story, and seriously fun shadow mechanic make this game something of a rarity. I can't express how underrated I think this game actually is. Granted there are minor technical hiccups and the game is short, but it was also made by a really small independent team, and none of the glitches I encountered were game breaking. All in all highly recommended!

[SPOILER ALERT]

Contrast is a small puzzle game which tells a story of a girl called Didi and her imaginary friend Dawn. The game starts in Didi's room while her mother is tucking her to bed. After she leaves Didi then runs out with her friend to sneak a peek of her show at a nearby club. When you enter the club called you accidentally stumble to a meeting between her mother and father. You then eavesdrop their argument and find out that your father is up to something. Didi then decides to follow him with her friend and find out what he is up to. You then start your adventure with the help of Didi and try to help her father and unite their family again. This proves to be more difficult than expected and there are many obstacles in your way.

Contrast is a combination of puzzle game and a platformer. You play the games as Didi's imaginary friend Dawn who seems to be invisible to everyone else except her in the world. Dawn has several abilities one being able to shift to shadows and shift any object in her hand as well. With this ability and your acrobatics skill you solve the games varying puzzles. The puzzles are rather simple but being able to shift to shadows gives puzzle solving a rather unique and fun touch.

The style of the game is very noir and reminds me of some of the old crime drama movies. The graphics are absolutely fantastic for such a small game. Even with lower settings the game still managed to look stunningly good even if a bit less detailed. The game is a bit fps heavy and occasionally the fps will drop low but this mostly happens when entering a new area. The soundtrack on the other hand was a bit of an disappointment since it didn't leave much of an expression on me. It fulfills its purpose and that's about it.

Conclusion:
This is a perfect game if you have few hours to spare and you still want to enjoy a good story. There is only few hours of gameplay and I managed to squeeze only 7 hours of gameplay even though I did a 100% run. Now this is not a big issue since I think the game still manages to deliver a great story with a perfect ending. The price is rather expensive for such a short game so you might want to wait until it is on sale unless you want to support indie developers.

Aesthetical/Visual Style: 10/10

Sound/Audio: 6/10

Gameplay: 8/10

Narrative: 8/10

Overall Score: 32/40 ~ 80%

In Contrast spielt man die imaginäre Freundin Dawn des Mädchens Didi, die die Gabe hat, als Schatten an Wänden zu laufen. Diese spielen sich wie ein Plattformer, können aber durch Interaktionen in der 3-Dimensionalen Spielwelt beeinflusst werden. So kann man z.B. durch das Verrücken von Lichtern den Schattenwurf verändern und so neue Bereiche erklimmen. Das Spielprinzip ist recht einfach, macht aber Spaß, auch wenn die Rätsel nicht sehr schwer sind und man recht flott durch das Spiel läuft.
Die Geschichte wird mittels Schatten an Wänden erzählt und ist eine süße kleine Geschichte um das französische Mädchen Didi und ihren Eltern. Nichts weltbewegendes, aber trotzdem recht nett.
Untermalt wird das ganze von ruhiger Jazzmusik, die ich gerne öfters in Videospielen hören würde.
Leider ist das Spiel, inklusive der Errungenschaften, sehr schnell durchgespielt (ca. 4 Stunden) und bietet keinen Grund es ein zweites mal zu spielen. Auch ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad sehr gering und für 15€ ist es meiner Meinung nach zu teuer.
Trotzdem ist es ein schönes abgeschlossenes Spiel, mit dem man sich gerne einen Abend beschäftigen kann.
