About White Shadows
White Shadows is a cinematic puzzle platformer where you play as a little Ravengirl trying to escape a brutal dystopia founded on propaganda that puts her at the bottom of its hierarchical social ladder. Striking architectural forms and a stunning monochrome art style combine to create a world of tragic beauty where the lies of the elite are plastered across walls, twisted forms of entertainment are used to keep everyone in their place and hope seems in short supply.
Composed of a vast network of towers rising from the void of post-catastrophe darkness into the sky above, the city our young heroine seeks to escape is a dangerous place to be. She will have to find ways to avoid the teeth of machinery primed to grind her into dust, leap across rickety infrastructure that bridges the cavernous darkness all around and avoid the watchful eyes of guards ready to gun her down. She will travel to the city’s brightest highs and delve into its darkest depths on her journey, discovering her destiny among the last free people alive.
