Evil West may have attracted more attention but the first of Focus Interactive’s reveals at The Game Awards 2020 was the least expected. Developed by Douze-Dixiemes, Shady Part of Me is already available for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch. Check out the debut trailer below.
As a narrative puzzle game, Shady Part of Me focuses on the journey of a young girl and her shadow. Traversing through various dreamscapes, the two must work together to survive. The core gameplay involves switching between 2D and 3D gameplay and the player can also rewind time to further aid in situations.
The aesthetic is perhaps the most interesting part of the game, offering watercolor-like flourishes and 2D animation in a largely 3D animated game. And if that weren’t enough, Hannah Murray of Game of Thrones and Skins lends her voice to the game. Shady Part of Me retails for $14.99 on all platforms but is currently discounted on the Microsoft Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam.
