What?

No gameplay trailers = fail

@Fearbeard: Indeed. The concept sounds interesting enough, but if they don't show anything about the actual gameplay the trailer is pretty pointless.

Sheesh, another game about a pre-teen boy getting separated from his shadow by a Mayan robot?  Come on Japan.

It's like ICO, but with terrible art and animation. 
 
So it's like a standard Wii game!

ICO rip off for the Wii.

At first I was like, what?  Shadow, that could be interesting.  But then I was like oh...  Its the Wii.   Never mind.

Annoying trailer, but from what I've seen before this game actually looks good.

yup

I read about this in Gameinformer. Seemed interesting. The gameplay seems like a lot of fun. If you move the view point, shadows can unite, creating a bridge or whatnot. Puzzle, 2D platforming in a 3D world, combat. Yeah, I'm interested to see more. 
 
Here's a raw video of the gameplay.

This game wants to be fez. But it will never be as good as Fez.

I'm sure it's already said, but the art style gives me an ICO vibe. sooo, that means I love it?

@Sweep: 
And Fez wants to be Crush. Your point?

...What?

@Claude: Thanks for linking the gameplay trailer.  
 
The idea of a shadow platformer is intriguing: multiple light sources casting multiple soft shadows, perspective shifts warping, shrinking, and blowing up objects, occlusion creating obstacles and pitfalls, etc. However, this just appears to be a straight transposition of an object, such that it might as well be that object. At this point, the shadow-ness of it seems irrelevant.  
 
Hopefully they'll fully develop those concepts as the development cycle progresses.

'HEY LISTEN!' looks like you got a Navi style buddy.

ICO PUZZLE FUN!!

Posted by ch3burashka

The allusion is obvious; the story had better match their inspiration's.

Posted by MaddProdigy

Trailer is weak. That gameplay that guy posted in comments looks cool though, some really epicly mind bending possibilities. But then again...it's for the wii.

Posted by Budkin

Wow... they really ripped off the ICO look big time. Check out that dude's sword.
