About This Game

In the aftermath of the war, Jean, a mighty thief, leaves her criminal organization to pursue her personal goal: recover the paintings of her brother. She is willing to do whatever it takes to get them back and avenge his legacy.

  • Wield dangerous and unusual powers - Modify the lighting and alternate between her shadow and light forms to carefully dodge the guards or use her shadow embrace to drag them into the abyss...

  • Use your shadow form to navigate through obstacles and solve puzzles - Morph with the shadows and squeeze yourself with your ink-like form through small crevices and barriers to reach your goal.

  • Explore the dark and richly realized world of 1920s London - Navigate a city built on the tears of the after-war and take advantage of the setting to build your path.

  • Discover a rich narrative with a heartfelt story - Delve deep in the time frame of the Britannic emancipation period and gather historical Easter eggs as you progress in the game.

  • Steal from a criminal organization in the name of personal vengeance - Choose to step up to the corrupt authorities and rebel against the system to pursue Jean’s goal of avenging her brother.
