There are already a bunch of impressive iOS games set for release in 2014. Now, however, we can add another to the list: Shadowmatic, a photorealistic 3-D puzzler, charges users with finding shapes in shadows and is set to reach the App Store in March 2014.
Though little concerning the application is known, a trailer recently appeared on YouTube and the app’s developer, Triada Studio Games, has launched an accompanying website. “Shadowmatic is a meditative 3-D puzzle game of finding shapes hidden in shadows. The player rotates seemingly abstract three-dimensional objects in spotlight, making their shadows form familiar silhouettes relevant to the surrounding environment,” the developer explains online.
Triada Studio Games adds:
The project is focused on delivering immersively photorealistic graphics across iOS devices, combined with gameplay that’s stimulating, challenging, and relaxing at the same time. The player experiences 9 distinct environments, with unique soundtrack for each.
The game is produced by Triada Studio Games, a new division of Triada Studio, which is a computer animation studio with over 20 years of history. Shadowmatic is the company’s first attempt to combine its vast computer graphics experience with an experimental in-house 3D engine.
Shadowmatic is set to reach our iDevices in March 2014, the developer notes. Here’s a full list of features, as outlined at the application’s aforementioned website:
- Over 70 unique levels
- 9 distinct environments
- Photorealistic real-time 3D graphics
- Non-linear level progression
- Intuitive and responsive multi-touch controls
- Tilt-enabled 3D parallax view
