2015's Shadowmatic was an interesting puzzle game, that combined a calm pace and detailed graphics with a unique mechanic revolving around shadows and perspective. Three years later, the game is getting a hefty update with the new Other Worlds chapter, adding new levels later this week.

 Every stage in Shadowmatic follows the same premise: a collection of oddly shaped figures and structures, constructed from various materials, hang in the air, their shadows projected onto the wall of the room where the puzze is situated. By rotating the pieces and rotating their position in the air, you can combine their weird amorphous shadows into the silhouette of a familiar shape, from an eagle to a stroller and other themed designs. 

This upcoming Other Worlds chapter will have a theme that spans history, from ancient history to the future; the trailer teases silhouettes of the Pyramids and an astronaut to showcase the range of the eras that the new chapter's 30-plus stages will cover.

Shadowmatic can be purchased for $3.99 on the App Store and Google Play, and the upate will be available on the 19th.
