The founder of Shadowplay Studios, Micheal Chu had this to say.
“The idea behind Projection: First Light went off like a lightbulb in my head when I recalled playing with shadows on a wall as a child,” said Michael Chu, Founder, Shadowplay Studios. “After toying with light manipulation at a game jam, we discovered the concept had a number of wonderful gameplay applications, which we hope to share with the gaming community along with the rich art and history behind shadow puppetry when Projection: First Light releases early next year.”
