Fading Shadows, the latest offering from European developer Ivolgamus, is an addictive puzzle-platformer game exclusive to the PSP TM offering an entirely unique style of action-packed puzzle gameplay, stunning graphics and visual effects, a riveting and immersive storyline, plus a competitive wireless multiplayer game mode.

Fading Shadows sees the player faced with the challenge of saving Erwyn, whose death, according to the millennia-old prophecy, will allow evil master Gardal to breach the gates of the Castle of Heaven, the supreme fortress built to protect the world from the forces of darkness. Erywn's soul has been enclosed in a protective orb by his clairvoyant sister, Aira, and the orb must now be returned to the dungeon where Erwyn is captive, using a magical beam of light.

The player must control the beam of light and exploit the state–changing abilities of the orb to fulfil the challenges of the 40 single player levels or 10 multiplayer levels. Pass through swamps, travel over mountains, visit castles and explore deserted cities. Change the orb's form into wood, metal or glass to overcome the obstacles facing you and return Erwyn to the Castle of Heaven.

Developer Ivolgamus are pleased with the progress of Fading Shadows and are confident that the game will provide PSP players with a new gaming experience. Managing Director, Victoria Trofimova, says "Fading Shadows has been an exciting journey for us. We have concentrated on the detail in all areas of development and have received encouraging feedback from SONY at all the development milestones."

Fading Shadows is to be released in Q1 2008.
