Shadow Puppeteer release announcement
Release date: 29th of September 2014
Shadow Puppeteer
Shared screen co-op adventure, about a Boy and his Shadow. Use lights and shadows to work together through 2D and 3D space.

“Shadow Puppeteer” is the story of a Boy and his Shadow who, once separated, have to learn to work together as they chase after the Shadow Puppeteer. It’s like “Little Big Planet” meets “Limbo” with an art style reminiscent of Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride”.

One player takes the role of a Boy. A Boy who witnesses the Shadow Puppeteer stealing all the shadows in the village, rendering their owners incapacitated. The second player is his Shadow, who eludes capture. Together they become a team that stands alone against the Puppeteer’s scheme.

The game takes the Boy and his Shadow on a journey through several diverse areas with different challenges, and faces them with terrible shadow monsters to overcome.

Gameplay features
  • Shared screen co-op
  • Puzzles - through use of light and shadow
  • Plattforming - with use of shifting gravity
  • Manipulating the world using shadow tools

Character Skills
The two characters have different skills and abilities that they discover and develop throughout the game. They both interact with the world, though one interacts with the physical objects and the other with their shadows.

Co-op VS Single Player mode
Shadow Puppeteer is designed as a local co-op experience. We are working on a single player mode that allows players to control both characters at the same time. You can read more about the development of the single player controls here []

About us
Sarepta studio was founded September 2010. Shadow Puppeteer is the first major game by the studio, and is being developed for consoles and PC. With Shadow Puppeteer we want to create a co-op experience that focuses on teamwork and seeing the world through different perspectives. The combination of the characters skills unite and complete them.

The audio team for Shadow Puppeteer consists of Ragnhild Tronsmo Haugland, Peter McConnell and Jory Prum.

Hi flesk! Thanks for commenting. We have members on our development team who would also love to see a Linux version of Shadow Puppeteer. But right now, we're focusing on making the PC version as good as we can. But hopefully we'll get a Linux version in the future:)

Thanks, Gnien.Foxpile™!
We have incredibly fond memories from SpillExpo. Being able to show off our game there and have people try it is so rewarding. The generousity of the visitors is a wonderful thing that makes us happy. We're planning to return to SpillExpo this year, too.

Hi Shrek Is Love
Thank you for showing an interest in Shadow Puppeteer! As of now we are only doing local test. We love the idea of people posting videos or having live streams with them playing the game, but as of now we do not have a plan for distribution of Steam Keys to Let's Players.
