Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is also a tale of two characters, and the latest trailer for the upcoming puzzler shines a light on both of them.
Hatinh Interactive and Monochrome Paris have released a brand new trailer for the puzzling Tandem: A Tale of Two Shadows, which I actually previewed very recently.
The new trailer is all about the game’s main characters that players will take control of. The first is Emma, a young, intelligent and strong-willed girl, and her mate, a teddy bear named Fenton. They’re both on the case of the mysterious disappearance of Thomas Kane, the son of an illusionist.
The duo work together in different planes of existence. Emma’s world is seen from a top-down perspective while Fenton’s is side-on, like a traditional side-scroller. Both need to act in their own world’s to influence one another’s, and it was those interactions that had me excited for more when I played an early preview build. Speaking of which, you can try Tandem: A Tale of Shadows for free PC as the game has a free demo as part of the Steam Next Fest. The demo will be available until June 22nd.
About Tandem: A Tale of Shadows
While Emma may seem coddled at a glance, she’s fiercely independent. Despite her young age, the girl can maintain composure when faced with uncertainty and knows how to learn from her mistakes. Fenton may appear indolent when measured against Emma’s determination but acts as a great complement to the indomitable woman, comforting her when hope fades away.
From the top of his wall, Fenton observes Emma and is ready to leap in to help her progress in her dimension! There’s no need to talk to each other: the switch between the two characters is immediate. Fenton will be able to jump to the next door as soon as Emma creates the solid shadow on which he can move. But before that, Emma must identify what she is using to create the shadow each time she enters a new room in the mansion. This is the only way to give Fenton an accessible platform!
Emma and Fenton work as a duo: Emma, in her dimension, creates shadows and Fenton unlocks the levels that will allow them both to progress. Emma must also face enemies and bosses. But she can count on Fenton’s help to repel or attract them!
