Of Light & Shadow is one of those freeware games that could have easily been commercial offerings. It's beautiful, polished, brimming with ideas and the product of love of a sizable team. Oh, and it even comes with a proper introduction, though it wont last you that long.
The game, a 2.5D platformer with puzzle elements, has you playing as both Mr. Light and Dr. Shadow each with his unique abilities and weaknesses. The former is afraid of darkness and can jump around, whereas the latter gets burned by light but can walk on walls and ceilings, making for some interesting mechanics and some quality lighting visuals.
