Game Focus writes: "Linger in Shadows is what most computer designers call interactive digital art or a 'demoscene'. Demoscenes are typically used by designers to show off artistic, musical and programming skills to the public. If you've seen any advertisement for a computer or graphic school, you'll understand what I mean. Sony Studios in Santa Monica, with the help of a demo group from Poland called Plastic, recently released the first ever demoscene for a console system called Linger in Shadows. While it will not appeal to all, it does show what can be done with the console's hardware."
