Of Light and Shadow is one of those freeware games that could have easily been commercial offerings. It's beautiful, polished, brimming with ideas and the product of love of a sizable team.

The Game

Since Mr. Light and Dr. Shadow can only survive in light or shadow areas respectively, the player must constantly switch between them and make the right decision about whose abilities to utilise! While Mr. Light should feel like your typical platformer character, Dr. Shadow in his robotic pants is more of a cognitive challenge with puzzles and - since he’s an unhurried academic - timing.

Throughout the game the player can switch between the two complementary characters at any time to pass through levels full of moving platforms, tricky puzzles and many hazards that insistently try to harm you!

Why you should vote for us
  • Unique level design and innovative gameplay by combining several abilities in Mr. Light and Dr. Shadow!
