This article is a preview to the game Iris Fall by Next Studios.
Iris Fall, a game of light and dark. It uses light and shadow as a way to traverse levels in an interesting way.
You are a girl who follows a cat, yellow eyes piercing the dank, gray alleyway. The cat eventually leads you to a very peculiar building, something that looks like it came out of a black and white Alice in Wonderland. You enter, and you discover a way to use shadow to make it through the room via a conduit. Making your way through, you discover more ways to use objects and light to make shadow paths.
To me, this game holds promise. It reminds me of Super Mario Odyssey in a way where it uses both two dimensional and three dimensional components in the same area, and it flows nicely. I’m interested to see what it has in store story-wise as well.
You can view the GDC trailer here. The game has a Steam page as well, and is set to release sometime next month in November.
