The award winning game, Hue, is set to make its debut on PC and consoles on August 23rd.
Hue’s world is far from black and white – although everyone in his world sees in greyscale. On a journey to solve his mother’s disappearance, players piece together her discarded research, uncovering the ability to see and alter colour. As the background shifts between shades, rifts form and obstacles slip between realities.
Hue begins the game with limited colour perception, but as he uncovers the circumstances surrounding his mother’s disappearance he’s able to manipulate the game world in increasingly sophisticated ways.
By transforming the background colour of the world, Hue can manipulate objects, unlock new areas, and interact with new aspects of the environment – a world of possibilities awaits the curious colour changer.
“Hue has been almost universally loved whenever we’ve taken it out to shows,” says Dan Da Rocha, Fiddlesticks, “so we’re incredibly excited to be finally getting into people’s hands properly. We’ve spent the last couple of years in Hue’s world – it’s going to be brilliant to welcome some more visitors.”
“The colour-changing puzzles bring something genuinely fresh to the genre – we’ve had a real blast designing them,” adds Henry Hoffman, Fiddlesticks. “Some of the latter stages of the game are incredibly devious – we’ll be taxing parts of the brain untouched by previous games.”
Hue will be available globally on Tuesday 23rd August for PC, PS4/Vita (cross-buy) and Xbox One for £11.99 / $14.99 / €14.99 with launch discounts where applicable.
