In My Shadow Switch. Not Yours, Mine

In My Shadow was an interesting indie puzzler for Steam, which now makes the transition to a smaller system: the Switch.

Do you remember In My Shadow? You mean you haven’t played it yet? Tsk, tsk. Well, if you didn’t get the chance to play it on Steam because you don’t have a computer, why not give it a go on the Nintendo Switch?

That’s right; you can pick up the platform puzzler on the Nintendo – a title from Playbae Games and published by OverGamez (Despotism 3KCollapsed and Cubicity).

You revisit Bella’s memories from when she was a little girl and the events that took place in her past by completing a series of puzzles where her shadow casts against the walls. She’s assisted by positioning objects around the room, making use of their shadows.

In My Shadow. Clever.

Key features in the game include:

  • Refreshingly clever puzzles that make use of shadows and shapes in ways you never thought were possible.
  • More than 50 levels spread across the walls of four rooms, each with its own set of distinct mechanics.
  • A heart-felt story about Bella’s mental apprehensions, narrated through her childhood memories.
  • Melodic music that flows seamlessly throughout the game to let you deeply absorb the emotion.
  • A beautifully colorful representation of Bella’s house that reflects the individual personalities of everyone in her family.

If it tickles your fancy, I made a boy scout video on YouTube. Humour me and check it out:
