Gorgeous Light Puzzler Where Shadows Slumber Hits Mobile
A beautiful looking new isometric puzzler that makes clever use of environmental lighting by the name of Where Shadows Slumber has arrived on Android. This artistically strong 3D puzzler from indie developer Game Revenant challenges players’ perceptions as they must use the shadows generated by their character in order to solve spatial riddles and manipulate the scenery. Released as a short 7 level teaser that serves as a precursor for the upcoming full game, Where Shadows Slumber is already shaping up to be something special.
In each level it’s up to players to get their avatar to the exit by carefully navigating them around the environment so their shadows reveal previously hidden objects and pathways that allow them to progress forward. This simple mechanic is used to great effect as even the most minor of movements can change the level layout in surprising ways. Although it is a relatively short experience in its current incarnation Where Shadows Slumber shows a lot of promise so it will be interesting to see how the game evolves going forward.
The teaser for Where Shadows Slumber is free to download on Google Play. It’s also available on iOS.
