Russian Localization added!

12 Grudzień 2013

Hey everyone

A small but very important update today - we've added Russian localization! You should now be able to select Russian alongside the other languages, and it should default to Russian if you system language is set to Russian too.

So, for our Russian players, Здравствуйте! I'm sorry it took so long to get this out; next time, Russian will be a much greater priority.

There are also a few minor bug fixes, and the game should be running pretty smoothly for you now.

Feel free to leave any feedback in the comments or in the forums.

Cheers!

CONTRAST is a puzzle/platform game where you can move between a fantastic 3D world and a mysterious shadowy universe in 2D in the blink of an eye. Delve into a dreamlike and surreal 1920s world, inspired by the performance art world of vaudeville and film noir, and cradled by a smooth and sultry jazz ambiance.

In this universe, where the boundaries between showmanship, magic, intrigue and deception are blurred, you play Dawn, the imaginary friend of a young girl named Didi. You have the power to slip from the 3D dreamscape into the parallel 2D shadow world bound to it. Cast light on a shadowy story by manipulating light sources in the 3D world to distort, enlarge or stretch the 2D shadow world. Manipulating and shifting between light and shadow will be the key elements that you will need to use to solve our world of shadow-based puzzles and help progress Didi's story!

Key Features
  • Shift between the physical 3D world and the 2D shadow world, at any lit wall surface
  • Create unique shadow landscapes by manipulating light sources and real world objects, and use this ability to solve mind-bending puzzles
  • Experience a new story and world, exploring adult themes through a child’s eyes
  • Immerse yourself in a lush vaudevillian world of cabaret singers, circus performers, and magic

Niesamowita gra. Połączenie zręcznościowej gry logicznej 3D z grą 2D. Pomysł opiera się na teorii Einsteina dotyczącej istnienia nieznanych ludziom światów w Naszym świecie. Sterujemy bohaterką o imieniu Dawn, która istnieje we właśnie takim świecie. Widzi ją tylko mała dziewczynka Didi, a ona widzi tylko ją. Ludzi obserwuje za pomocą cieni, tak więc wygląd innych postaci np. rodziców Didi poznajemy ze zdjęć/plaktów itp. Dawn opiekuję się małą dziewczynką, która wymyka się nocami do miasta. Chodzi na różne spektakle itp. Jej matka jest wschodzącą gwiazdą Kabaretu, a jej ojciec zostawił ich. Dziewczynka postanawia ich połączyć i tak rozpoczyna się ta dosyć krótka, aczkolwiek ciekawa przygoda.

Gra składa się z III aktów, które rozgrywają się w mieście. Elementów logicznych i zręcznościowych nie ma za wiele i nie są one za bardzo wymagające. Parę razy musiałem coś powtarzać czy trochę pokombinować. To co w tej grze jest dobre, to klimat. Ta produkcja posiada bardzo fajną oprawę audiowizualną. Uliczki po których się poruszamy są interesująco zaprojektowane, a normalne przedmioty takie jak np. rower stanowią ciekawe elementy rozgrywki dla Dawn. Wystarczy odrobina światła.

Polecam na jakieś promocji. Osobiście wziąłem za 7$ i nie żałuję. Gra na parę godzin, a do wymaksowania nie potrzeba wiele więcej.

Na plus:
-Voice acting
-Fabuła
-Klimat
-Pomysł
Na minus:
-Długość normalna jak na grę w tej cenie, w dodatku grę Indie. Natomiast miała potencjał na stanie się pełnowymiarową, długą produkcją. Oby twórcy rozwinęli ten pomysł.
-Bugi, głównie ze skrzynkami. Na szczęście ich nie ma za wiele.

Shorter than I expected, but still amazing.
Interesting gameplay, nice art and designs for both characters and areas, and if the story doesn't catch your interest at the begining of the game - the final Act might change that, too.

Bardzo krótka, trochę zabugowana, ale klimatyczna i na swój oryginalny sposób ładna. Jak przecenią - brać!

Just finished playing the game; about 4 hours to complete. All achievements and collectables unlocked.

This game was an absolute pleasure to play. It's a short indie game telling a mature story of a young girl and her broken family trying to come back together as they make painful choices, solve difficult situations, and all the while unraveling a mysterious tale of science & intrigue closer to the heart than expected.

I absolutely understand this may not be for everyone... but the deciding factor I believe we should all consider is this is a very affordable, small-team, indie game worth experiencing. That said, the amount of storytelling I experienced was amazing.

If it is worth anything, I have a background in animation as a storyboard artist... I am especially keen to stories that feel "thought through" from start to finish, and not merely trying to get to certain moments or even the climactic finale just for the sake of it. This story has scenes from the whole way through that truly made my wife & I get pretty darn sad (yes, she cried & I was close at the end). Stay for the end...

The difficulty is quite easy, and that may throw some people off... in my opinion however I enjoy story over challenge, so making all the collectibles glaringly obvious throughout only made me focus on their content and how it intertwined with the story rather than the pursuit. This is very subjective, so those looking for a hard time may be turned off. I've read here & there some having troubles with the shadow puzzles; this again is a tough one, as I got through all of them pretty easy... the most I spent was maybe 20-25 minutes on the last act's few big ones... still, the visuals and little rewards you are given with wonderful voice acting or visual design was well worth it.

Speaking of voices, the acting was tremendous. We especially enjoyed the voice of Didi, as child voice overs can sometimes be a hit or miss.

Visually the game is an absolute joy to experience. Didi and Dawn are interesting, and I even grew to love the wonderful silhouettes of the characters around them. The soundtrack is very well thought out and you can clearly see the sound & visuals were designed hand in hand to compliment each other.

I know reviews can be a subjective mess for some, but I hope this helps in whatever way it can! I'm a pretty level-headed, patient man who really appreciates good art & story. If this isn't your cup of tea, I again remind you it was a fifteen dollar purchase that definitely wouldn't make you regret the experience.

I'm not a hardcore "anti-big publisher / developer" gamer, but I do want to say, humbly, that games like this make me so hopeful and excited about indie games. They provide an intimacy and patience in story I don't see often enough in the AAA titles.

Very best regards,
DDCP

Contrast is a mixture of dark noir atmosphere and puzzle-platforming adventure. One of the real treats of the game is the music - perfect jazz and sexy voice of Kat Malenkaya (what a nice character name). The main theme reminds me of a song "I wish you love" from "Eye of the Beholder" and Jessica Rabbit's "Why don't you do right". It is so romantic, sensual and emotional. Dawn is a very interesting main character (now I want those striped leggings), but I want to know more about her, her mysterious story was not fully told. Contrast is a game full of beauty, the dialogs make you sympathize with characters, 1920's Paris, the lights, burlesque and the circus are absolutely gorgeous. There are couple dissapointments - the movements (jumps) are glitchy and the game is too short. Thats it. For me - it's definitely worth playing.
