Set in a noir art deco atmosphere, the player controls a young detective, Dawn, who is able to move in 3D or flatten herself against walls so she becomes a silhouette that can jump between shadows like in a 2D platformer. There is control over different light sources in the 3D world (spotlights, film projectors, etc) to create the proper shadow platformer paths to reach new areas in the 2D world.
Contrast requires at least a Radeon HD 6670 or GeForce GTS 250 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. 4 GB will also be needed to achieve the Contrast rec specs and get 60FPS. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Contrast needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 10. We suggest a 10 year old PC to play smoothly.
