HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT
CHALLENGES GAMERS TO AIM HIGH WITH THE ARTISTIC PLATFORMER

LOST IN SHADOW

 

Mixing
Innovative Adventure, Puzzles and Movement, Lost In Shadow Brings a New
Dimension to Wii


 


In 2010, Hudson Entertainment will give gamers a glimpse into
Lost In Shadow – a striking vision that follows a shadow of a boy as
he attempts to climb around and up a mystical tower.  Along the way, players
must solve mysteries, puzzles and fight off enemies that try to impede the
boy’s progress.  Published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South
American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, Lost In Shadow will be
exclusive to Wii.

 


Lost In Shadow is different from anything else seen
on Wii before – mixing unique platform elements with levels of puzzles into
a stylized environment for a beautiful gameplay experience,” said Dai Kudo,
director of consumer products at Hudson Entertainment.  “The innovative
shadow-based gameplay and artistic vision makes Lost In Shadow a
truly breakthrough concept in videogames.”


 


In Lost In Shadow, players are confronted with a
mysterious Tower in an alternative world.  The Tower is filled with
moving shadows yet at the same time, casts a large shadow on everything
beneath it.  With the help of a winged sylph known as “Spangle,” players can
move lights in the foreground to create new shadowy walkways to previously
inaccessible areas.  Unaffected by gravity while traveling through this
medieval landscape, the shadow boy solves mysteries and fights off enemies
who stand in his way.  The game’s combination of light, shadow, background
and foreground creates a unique blend of novel gameplay features, morphing
landscapes and artistic visuals.
