In My Shadow is a platform game with puzzle game elements, based on the mechanics of shadow manipulation, which is not often used in video games. The game was developed by Playbae Games, an independent Indian studio, while its release was handled by Alcon Interactive Group.

Plot

The main character of In My Shadow is a young woman named Bella. After receiving an unexpected message from her father, the protagonist recalls her childhood and problems in her family. While trying to accept her difficult past, the girl watches her memories come to life on the walls of her house.

Mechanics

In In My Shadow we take control of the shadow of the younger version of the main character, cast on the wall of her room. Watching it from the side, we overcome various obstacles and avoid traps, also presented as shadows, as well as solve simple puzzles. The game also lets us zoom out and move objects in the room to change the position and size of obstacles visible on the walls, or create platforms for the little protagonist to jump onto. More than fifty such arcade and logic challenges await completion, which take place on the walls of the four rooms of Bella's house. Over time, the difficulty level increases; for example, one object can cast shadows on two walls, forcing you to be more inventive and spatially imaginative.

Technical aspects

In My Shadow has simple, yet colourful and clear graphics. It is complemented by an atmospheric soundtrack enhancing the emotions accompanying the watching of subsequent memories of Bella's difficult childhood.

Game mode: single player
