Absolutely loved this game. The unique concept works very well, and I thoroughly enjoyed it despite normally not liking (or being good at) platformers. I'd love to see a sequel to this game. I did have a number of criticisms, but they were all relatively minor and I enjoyed the game in spite of them. Highly recommend.

Pros:
- The entering and leaving shadows to solve puzzles mechanic works very well
- The collectable luminaries (some of which are needed to solve puzzles) are sometimes easily accessible, and sometimes more challenging. This means you can just go after the easy ones if you want, or you can try for the (slightly) more difficult ones
- The story-related collectables are never hidden too well, so as long as you explore you'll likely find them all
- The puzzles start off easy and get harder at a comfortable rate
- The 50's Vaudville art style looks brilliant and suits the atmosphere perfectly
- The soundtrack is amazing

Cons:
- The controls outside of shadows could have been better, it sometimes felt a bit too unpredictable where you'd jump
- For the most part the shadow controls worked well, but the third chapter could have used more polish. There were some areas I consistently was booted out of the shadow world for no obvious reason.
- I didn't come across any luminaries that I couldn't figure out how to get to fairly easily. They could have done with adding some more challenging ones.
- The third chapter came on much stronger in terms of story than the others, so it felt a bit out of balance. The first two you're wondering what's going on with the shadows, why can you enter them, why can no one see you, etc, but the story or collectables never address it. Then in chapter three suddenly it's all about that. I think those sorts of questions should have been at least hinted at more gradually. If it had been extended over a fourth chapter it likely would have been ideal.
- The ending leaves you with a lot of questions. Granted this is intentional, but it's not a case of it being open to interpretation. Even if you really consider everything in the game and think about it you're still going to be left with some questions, or at least uncertainty. To a certain extent this is a good thing, but personally I would have preferred it to be a tiny bit clearer (unless it was intended for a sequel of course).

Verdict: 9/10

Hey there. We matched on STM (although I think I've seen you around SG ^^) and I was wondering if you'd like to trade one of your LiS polaroid emotes for a blue butterfly emote. I crafted some badges yesterday and received 2 of the butterfly emotes (valued at 6 cents), and STM says you have 2 of the polaroid emotes (same value). No problem whatsoever if you want to keep both and no rush getting back to me, just wanted to drop a comment now before I forget. :) And sorry if you get two notifications about me posting on your wall... I made a typo in the first post.
