About The Game

Experience and explore a surreal 1920s dreamscape a vaudevillian, film noir-inspired almost-reality. In a world full of performance, intrigue and deception, you play as Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl, Didi.

Every kid’s imaginary friend is special, and you have powers that no one else does – you can walk up to a lit wall, and become your shadow. You can shift in and out of your shadow, at any lit surface, to help Didi explore the mysteries surrounding her family.


• Shift between the physical 3D world and the 2D shadow world (become your shadow!)

• Experience a new story and world, exploring adult themes through a child’s eyes

• Solve mind-bending puzzles

• Manipulate light sources and real-world objects to create unique shadow landscapes

• Immerse yourself in a lush world of cabaret singers, circus performers, and magic
