Tandem: a tale of shadows presents five magnificent Victorian-inspired worlds inspired by Jules Vernes, Conan Doyle and Tim Burton. Players must carefully alternate between the top-down view of Emma and the horizontal side-scrolling view of Fenton if they hope to escape these chiaroscuro dimensions alive, using the first lantern to cast shadows as the Teddy bear can walk through while the teddy bear activates switches that may be out of sight. As the duo traverse clever obstacles and looming horrors, they uncover clues regarding Thomas’ disappearance, the bizarre Kane family, and their place in this universe. Will Emma and Fenton escape the murderous mansion filled with twists and turns, or is their fate already sealed?
