It’s always nice to get a release date for a game that’s caught the eye whenever it has popped up. We’ve had a few looks at Schim, a pretty puzzle platformer, in previous game showcases. It emerged during Nintendo’s Indie World stream on Wednesday that the game is coming to Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC on July 18. The creators say it will run smoothly on Steam Deck too.
You’ll take on the guise of a schim, a frog-like creature that’s linked to a human but gets separated from them. To get back to your person, you’ll need to leap from one shadow to the next. Schim seems to play around with light and shadows in intriguing ways, such as a forklift activating to give your character access to a new area horizontally and pulling back on a sign to propel yourself further forward.
Schim uses an abstract art style that hopefully lends itself to moderately challenging gameplay. Developers Ewoud van der Werf and Nils Slijkerman, who have worked on the game for four years, also say that each level will feature small stories. I’m looking forward to this one.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/shadow-platformer-schim-is-coming-to-pc-and-consoles-on-july-18-162815433.html?src=rss
