Developer Playbae has announced that their upcoming puzzle game In My Shadow will launch on Steam on April 8.
In My Shadow places players in the shoes of Bella, who must deal with her past by confronting old memories throughout her home. As she recalls family issues and more, she must guide her childhood self through a multitude of puzzles that take place across four rooms of the home. As she manipulates the shadows of the rooms by moving furniture in the real world, young Bella – who is simply a shadow herself – is able to find a clear path for platforming on the walls.
In My Shadows has already made a name for itself over the past few years leading up to its impending release. It has managed to score multiple awards, including IGDC’s Best Upcoming Game of the Year and Indie Prize Asia’s Most Innovative Game, and it was even nominated at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show.
In a press release, Playbae has promised In My Shadows will provide the following exciting features:
- Over 50 puzzles that require you to master the shadows
- The heart-warming story of a young woman trying to let go of her past
- A variety of solutions to every puzzle
- An emotional, piano lead soundtrack that compliments the memories of Bella’s journey
If all of that sounds up your alley, you won’t have to wait long to check out In My Shadows for yourself on April 8, and you can also snag the game’s official soundtrack on Steam on the same day.
