A good and different story gets lost behind buggy mechanics 0

Contrast is an interesting story that I haven't seen told in video games. Its told around a young girl and her family struggles. You play as her friend that only she can see. The game that comes with that story is also a novel idea of shifting into shadows to solve puzzles and reach places you normally could not. The problem is that gameplay is a buggy mess.

Quickly Released. Quickly Forgotten. 0

Contrast is a classic example of a game that could have done with a little more time in the oven.
