You would never lie to me, would you?

Contrast, Compulsion Games’ intriguing shadow-filled puzzler, is out now, and to celebrate there’s a new trailer for your entertainment and bewilderment. Didi’s imaginary friend Dawn has a lot on her plate, but she isn’t the only one, and there’s more than a touch of surreal noir about this gorgeous short. But who’s lying to who? Now there’s a question you’ll need to play the game to answer.

It’s the story that’s the main draw here, and this trailer nails that home. Compulsion’s indie effort earned a lot of love at Gamescom and PAX Prime this year, and with good reason; it’s one of those experiences that sticks with you, even if its puzzles don’t always challenge. Sony offered this free via the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection at PS4’s launch, but if you’re after this on other systems, it’s also out on Xbox 360, PS3 and Steam, at about $15.

Now, Dawn, better go through your paces; you’ve had a decent American opening, but Europe has a day or so to wait before it gets a good look at your PSN act.
