Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is like Coraline & Monster House had a Kid
This isn’t the first action-adventure game that plays around with perspective, but it’s not Paper Mario The Origami King, Superliminal, Little Nightmares or Little Nightmares II. This game plays around with perspective in a different way and combines their puzzles with reflex, speed, changes between 2D and 2.5D and has multiple stages in each Chapter to get through. Every Chapter has a floor that you need to get through and each floor has a boss. The eerie vibes suit the Epic Mickey and Coraline world the most, that is the best way to describe it. So What is this mysterious game? Tandem: Tale of Shadows.
What is Tandem Tale of Shadows?
Tandem Tale of Shadows is an action-adventure, puzzle platformer game, developed by Monochrome Paris. Set in what seems like early 19th century England ( The Victorian Era). A child by the name of Thomas Kane has gone missing and without much of a trace…so a young Teddy Bear that had fallen out of the Kane family carriage, comes to life and has decided to team up and discover the truth by visiting the Kane family mansion and investigating. I suspect that the Teddy belongs to Thomas Kane, but may have been previously dropped and picked up by the family members along the way and then thrown out onto the street…what do you suspect? Watch this trailer and let us know in the comments.

Epic Games store has confidence that Tandem Tale of Shadows will do well, I also have the same thoughts. Those who enjoyed Little Nightmares, Lost in Random, Little Misfortune and many other fantasy-horror favourites, may pique the interest of those fans.
What Platforms will Tandem Tale of Shadows be released on?
It’s been said that Tandem Tale of Shadows will be released on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows and Xbox One. Which are all great platforms for this type of puzzle game, especially the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation Platform.
When will Tandem Tale of Shadows be released?
The 21st of October is the date of release that has been confirmed on the PlayStation blog, however that could change as the Tandem Tale of Shadows Twitter page does not give an official date of release and rather gives the month, OCTOBER. So perhaps we could see the release a little later or if being blessed by the gods, earlier than the 21st of October. It’s perfect, in time for Halloween. So why not get your detective on? Step into a tentacle living mansion if you dare.
