Fascinating conceit, although that alone hardly makes for a good game.  Not a huge fan of Hudson but still, this is intriguing.  At first it seems like just an aesthetic decision which wouldn't really affect the gameplay dynamics, but thinking about it more the possibilities open up.  They could have levels where the sun is setting and the shadows grow taller, or a place with artificial lighting or where maybe the light source moves, so the platforms change.  It's also an interesting rendition of 2D gaming, making it in a 3D environment but casting it on a 2D plane within that environment.  I'll probably check this game out, at the very least.  I always admire a company's willingness to do something different.

That was in the trailer that they released.

Is anyone bothered by the fact they're making players "platform" with much less screen real-estate than other platformers?

Your actions seem to take place in a distant view in only a definite fraction of the screen resolution.

An extreme case would playing Mario Galaxy in a PIP window on a TV; that's the feeling i'm hinting at.

New gameplay video. It is a very nice concept for a game.

Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.

I'm happy with thinking pokepal148 is just eating a stick of butter. It seems about right for him. I don't need no stinking facts.

NWR just posted some new screens and I'm surprised I missed or forgot about this game. It looks like a great concept. Can't wait to see more of it.

A Shadow's Tale is one of the Wii's most beautiful and interesting games, both understated and deceptively deep. It never overuses one element or another, never dropping in a particular type of light or switch puzzle too often and changing things up just as you begin to suspect it's getting gimmicky. The core novelty of its gameplay never wears off, and the artistic direction is a constant source of pleasure. What with this and Limbo, it's an excellent year for the reimagined 2D platformer.
