Projection: First Light follows the adventures of Greta, a girl living in a mythological shadow puppet world, as she embarks on a journey of self-enlightenment with the assistance of legendary heroes from each culture she explores. Accompanied by atmospheric visuals and an ethereal soundtrack made with antique instruments used for shadow puppet performances, Projection: First Light takes players on an inclusive voyage through the history of shadow puppets as it evolves through Indonesia, China, Turkey, Greece, and 19th century England. Early in her expedition, Greta takes control of a source of light and learns of her ability to manipulate it. Shadows become platforms and walls, other elegant and imaginative solutions irradiate puzzles, and enemies can be dispersed – as Projection: First Light explores themes of worldliness, respect and understanding.

Projection: First Light has some issues with the shadow mechanics and it’s quite short and damaged a bit by an awful climactic sequence. But the overall quality of the gameplay, visuals, and narrative are all high and come together for a unique, enjoyable experience. Fans of puzzle-platformers will undoubtedly find a very good entry here.
In conclusion, in spite of a few shortcomings, the overall package is worth getting into. It's not overwhelmingly difficult, with obstacles being just hard enough to be fulfilling but not so much so that you're staring at your screen in utter confusion. The music takes inspiration from the real-world counterparts of the in-game levels; it's easy-going and mellow as you solve your way through areas. If the game looks interesting to you, give it a go.
