PSP Fades Into Shadow

Fading_Shadows_Front_Cover.jpg Agetec sure is getting prepped up for a busy summer, today announcing plans to publish PSP puzzler Fading Shadows in North America to go along with its two other recently announced titles (Touch Darts and Falling Stars). Developed by Lithuanian studio Ivolgamus (the same team behind Falling Stars), Fading Shadows is a fantasy puzzle game described as having the player “take control of a beam of light in order to lead an orb through dungeons, swamps, mountains, and around rivers – all while avoiding traps and solving increasingly difficult puzzles.” The orb will also be able to change material between glass, metal, or wood, so think of it in the same vein as Switchball or the Mercury games. The game will feature 50 levels, a prominent storyline, two-player co-op, a robust tutorial and more.

“We’re very happy to be publishing this game as we think many people will be fascinated by the story,” says Agetec’s producer Mark Johnson. “It’s an incredible, one-of-a-kind game that features an intriguing story, brain teasing puzzles, and unique gameplay. Puzzle fans will not be disappointed.”

Check after the break for a trailer and screenshot gallery. Keep in mind, the game has already been released overseas, so disregard the mention of a “February 2008” release date. It’s scheduled to ship here in the US next month. I’m very eager to see more about this one, looks like it should be a nice little summertime PSP sleeper.
