In Hue, an indie puzzle platformer adventure game, everyone in the world only sees in greyscale. But Hue’s mother, a scientist, figured out a way to see and manipulate colors. After another scientist tried to steal her work, she had an accident that turned her invisible.
Now Hue is on a journey to try to solve his mother’s disappearance and piece together her research. As he puts more clues together, he’ll uncover more colors and more abilities to alter those colors. As you change the background color of the world, obstacles that match that background color disappear and new elements appear.
His color-changing power will let players unlock new areas and interact with new aspects of the environment.
The developers promise engaging puzzles, a heartfelt story, lively characters all with their own personality and story, and original music. They also have full colorblind support with symbols instead of colors.
The game has already won several awards and so far has had favorable reviews by game critics. Gadgets 360 praises the game’s clever puzzle design, unique mechanics and good story. Destructoid said “Hue is a well-crafted, enjoyable experience. I don’t usually like physics-based platformers, but the controls are simple and responsive enough that I never felt like a death was anyone’s fault but my own.”
