‘Shadow Puppet’ Platformer Projection: First Light Illuminates Switch Today

Nintendo

 

Projection: First Light, a puzzle-platformer from Shadowplay Studios and publisher Blowfish Studios, is now available on Nintendo Switch. A launch trailer has been released to celebrate, which you can check out for yourself above.

The game has you setting out on a journey as Greta, a young traveller seeking to learn more about herself and the mysterious light-manipulating power she possesses. You’ll be making your way through locations based on China, Indonesia, Turkey, Victorian England, and more, all brought to life with shadow puppetry-inspired art.

As you can see in the video above, the platforming itself sees you controlling the light to create platforms which Greta can use to progress. The light also helps you to solve puzzles and create passageways, and looks like it could be the key to a very clever little title indeed.

We actually first heard about this one heading to Switch way back in 2017, so it’s nice to see the game finally arrive. It’s available now on the eShop for $19.99 USD / €17.99 / $24.99 AUD.
