Light and shadow, one cannot exist without the other. Light brings knowledge, darkness brings mystery, but true magic exists in between.
Silhouette is unlike anything you've witnessed before. With a simple shadow, Tobias Dostal creates a moment so pure, so impossible, and so visceral that it could start a religion. Simply put, Silhouette gives you the uncanny ability to manipulate and interact with shadows.
With Silhouette, you have ultimate control over the realm of shadows. You can take a shadow and pluck it into reality. You can freeze your shadow in time. You can form shadows from things that don't exist. You can steal your spectator's shadow. You can even create a misbehaving shadow that snatches objects from your very hands (sometimes it'll even tickle you). Your shadows can be lighthearted, downright mischievous, or simply unexplainable, you decide.
