Compulsion Games today launched its digital download 2D/3D puzzle-platformer CONTRAST™ for PC , PlayStation ® 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Compulsion Games is not only celebrating the launch of the title but the community that helped to bring the highly anticipated Indie game to light from the start, beginning with the Steam Greenlight™ program. As one of the first games to be “Greenlit”, the support continued and swelled with hands-on consumers experiences such as PAX East to its release today.
"Today, we celebrate everyone whose support made it possible for Contrast to come out of the shadows and see a launch we before could have only dreamt of,” said Guillaume Provost, creative director and founder, Compulsion Games. “We feel incredibly lucky and thankful to have had such amazing business partners, team members and most importantly the community who gave us encouragement through this, at times, wild ride. On behalf of the entire Contrast team, we had two very important words to share: THANK YOU.”
CONTRAST draws players into a surreal 1920s dreamscape; a vaudevillian, film noir-inspired world where the boundaries between showmanship, magic, intrigue and deception are blurred. Players take on the role of Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl, Didi. Every imaginary friend is special, and Dawn is no exception. She has the unique ability to shift from the striking 3D fantasy stage into the mysterious 2D shadowscape. Like every family, Didi’s isn’t perfect; in fact they are as unique as they come with an aspiring cabaret singer mother and an absentee father. Didi’s only wish is to reunite her family. As Dawn, use shadow shifting abilities to solve intricate puzzles and uncover the secrets that plagues the family’s past.
