We see indie titles releasing across different platforms every year. One more title that is upcoming, is a title called “Hue”, developed by a studio called Fiddlesticks.
The game is based around a vibrant world where you have to alter its background color to cross the lands to find a boy’s mother. The game has received many awards for their game and are proud of bringing their game to everyone.
The game has quite an interesting taste to it with the game playing elegant music in the background which would aid in setting the scene and mindset for the player. To get around the game, the player will need to change the color of their background to get past obstacles.
Since the game is “color-centric”? The designer, Henry Hoffman, went out on the search to find solutions to fix this issue and make the game accessible to all. In a PlayStation Blogpost, he said:
“After showcasing the game around the world, we soon discovered that some players struggled more than most — and not because of their gaming abilities. Up to 10% of people suffer from color blindness, and for them, telling colors apart could prove very challenging. After much research, testing, and seeking advice from color-blind communities, we devised a simple symbol system which we hope will make the game accessible to all. We really want as many people as possible to enjoy Hue.”
I personally am excited for such a game. The game is designed to pull you into the game test you with mind-boggling puzzles. The game seems pretty promising and should be released on the PlayStation 4, PS VITA, Xbox One, and PC by the 23rd of August, this year. It would have been nice to see it on the Wii U as well. Well anyways, finally another game for the PS Vita.
