Description

Color Thief is a puzzle game where you play as a chameleon that manipulates color through touch. Color acts as an energy source in the world - so giving color to plants makes them bloom, or removing it from fire makes the fire into a solid form - and you use this ability to explore abandoned temples and try to figure out what happened to the world.

History

Our goals with Color Thief are to create an atmospheric puzzle game that respects the player by minimizing hand-holding and repetition, tells a story through details in the environment, and builds an engaging experience by following the logical implications of a simple gameplay idea (what if color equaled energy?). We want the player to feel the wonder of a mysterious world and to enjoy the satisfaction of piecing narrative clues together and solving puzzles through logic. As players that often feel outside of gaming’s target demographic, we are attempting to create a deep gameplay experience that doesn’t rely heavily on typical gaming fare such as numerical rewards and combat.
