Red Panda Interactive and Fishing Cactus have announced Shift Quantum, their new puzzle game, will be released on multiple consoles and the PC this spring.
Shift Quantum is a cyber-noir action-puzzle platformer in black and white, with a unique gameplay mechanic called SHIFTING. Solve puzzles and create negative space by inverting the world and transform barriers into escape routes. Use this unique SHIFT mechanic to your advantage and overcome the game’s obstacles.
If that description leaves you lost, you’re not alone. This is the kind of game you have to see to get….
It’s not so complicated — the space where you can walk is white and the space where you can’t is black. Hit a button and the colors invert, changing what’s accessible. Manipulation of this mechanic is key to crossing obstacles and pushing blocks into their proper places.
Shift Quantum is a sequel to Shift, a puzzle game from a while back created by Antony Lavelle in Flash. The new game will be published professionally on at least one machine you own: Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC. Watch for it this spring.
