Tandem: A Tale of Shadows Is Getting a Physical Release

Gorgeously Dark

Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is getting a physical release on the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. This is a game I missed, but I am highly interested in and will certainly take a look at these physical editions. I love strange, horror-themed platformers like Tandem: A Tale of Shadows.

Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is available for pre-order here and also offers a new collector’s edition that comes with a statue and an artbook alongside the game. The physical edition of the game is currently set to launch on March 25, 2022.

Here are some key features for Tandem: A Tale of Shadows:

  • Stunning Art Direction: The game’s art direction plays with the importance of light and shadows, provoking the wonder of childhood. The graphic style is entirely made in 3D, which provides a visual richness to the game.
  • Puzzle Platformer Game: Solve over forty puzzles and obstacles in order to unravel the mysterious disappearance of Thomas Kane. Discover playful and frightening worlds inspired by Tim Burton and Victorian-era architecture.
  • Dual Gameplay: Swap perspectives between Emma and teddy bear, Fenton. Using their unique abilities and perspectives, switch from a top-down view controlled by Emma, and a side-scroller view played by Fenton.
  • Narrative-Driven Adventure: Explore five different breath-taking universes with 18 secret rooms for players to discover and 12+hours of gameplay. Players are invited to discover creative and elaborate cutscenes.
  • Diverse Mechanics: Push or pull objects to create shadows. Use alarms and traps to your advantage. Tandem features a variety of interactive elements for players to experiment with.

I am quite a fan of Tandem: A Tale of Shadow’s art direction. I love the dark, horror themes, and the dual protagonist seems interesting enough. The shadow world of the teddy bear Fenton looks excellent.
