'Iris.Fall' Comes To Nintendo Switch and PS4 In 2021

Iris.Fall is a dark fairy tale adventure puzzle game in which players are challenged with solving clever puzzles and uncover an intriguing story full of mystery and wonder.

With "light and shadow" as a core concept, Iris.Fall takes players on a monochrome journey unlike any other.

After awakening from a dream, Iris follows a black cat into a dilapidated theater, traveling back and forth through a strange labyrinth of light and shadow. As the story unfolds, Iris begins to realize that everything in this theater seems to have some kind of hidden connection to herself.

The game features a mechanic that allows the player, as Iris, to switch between two worlds of shadow and light as she is led through a dilapidated theatre by a mysterious cat. The environments are filled with puzzles that stretch across both the physical and shadow realms. These challenges make the player carefully consider the ways the two worlds interact with each other to progress.

As with all PS4 games, the PS5 will be able to play Iris.Fall thanks to the system's backwards compatibility.

Pre-orders are now open (Gamestop, Best Buy, Amazon) with the special incentive of an exclusive digital OST with every order.

Key Features:

  • Unique monochrome art style: The game’s visuals use a pure black-and-white cartoon style, relying on the transition between light and shadow to create a distinct experience, both exquisite and visually impactful.
  • Fusing gameplay and the “light & shadow” system: The concept of “light and shadow” runs throughout the design of the game’s art, story, and puzzles. By switching between light and shadow, players can pass through the two realities, experiencing the unique interlacing of black and white, light and shadow, 2D and 3D.
  • Immersive story experience: Become fully immersed in the plot through the stylized and suspenseful atmosphere of the setting and story. Progress in the game feels more like the player’s spiritual exploration.

Currently available for PC (Steam), Iris.Fall is coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 (compatible for PS5) on January 8, 2021 for $39.99
