By - | Views: 26,463

Sometimes I come across a game feel like I just need to play it, and the latest is SCHiM, a puzzle game with a really fun visual look and setting where you jump between shadows. Releasing on July 18th, the developer has confirmed it will be available and supported on Linux and Steam Deck.

More: SCHiM is a game about jumping from shadow to shadow, while interacting with a relaxing and lively environment. A schim is the soul and spirit of an object, thing, or living being. Everything in the world has one. A schim should never be separated from their thing! This does happen to your schim, this schim who is attached to a human being is separated from them early on in the game.

I've been following the progress on Mastodon, and this looks like it will be a well-polished game!
Seems to me this is less "a story of a person losing their shadow" and more a story of a shadow losing their person.

Definitely the most adorable shadow-spirit-creature I've seen in a while.

Nice, whishlisted. Just hopping they can get a good game out of a unusual idea. Not all indies trying something different managed to pull it off. I hope this one does.

Yeah. When I read "... with a twist" in a game's description, I always wonder if they made an actual game off their "twist".
