The world of Tandem: A Tale of Shadows is inspired by Jules Vernes, Conan Doyle, and Tim Burton where each dimension in the game feels like a German expressionist or Dutch golden age art piece brought to life.

Thomas Kane is the son of a famous family of illusionists and he vanishes without a trace. Unable to rely on the authorities, 10-year old Emma decides to investigate herself however as she is heading to the Kanes’ Manor, she witnesses a speeding carriage that drops a magical teddy bear.
