In the game, players become Dawn, who is able to shadow-shift and distort, enlarge or stretch the 2D shadowscape. She uses these powers to solve puzzles and help nine-year-old Didi's troubled family.
CONTRAST provides a unique atmosphere where magic and a dream-like universe become blurred in a little girl’s imagination. Her life is turned upside-down by her day-to-day existence and her parents’ separation.
The game borrows from film noir in style, tone and performance. Sinister motives, infidelity, betrayal and jealousy are the essential elements of the genre and are imaginatively reflected in the world of CONTRAST.
