The award winning game, Hue, is set to make its debut on PC and consoles on August 23rd.
Hueâ€™s world is far from black and white â€“ although everyone in his world sees in greyscale. On a journey to solve his motherâ€™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 motherâ€™s disappearance heâ€™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 â€“ a world of possibilities awaits the curious colour changer.
â€œHue has been almost universally loved whenever weâ€™ve taken it out to shows,â€ says Dan Da Rocha, Fiddlesticks, â€œso weâ€™re incredibly excited to be finally getting into peopleâ€™s hands properly. Weâ€™ve spent the last couple of years in Hueâ€™s world â€“ itâ€™s going to be brilliant to welcome some more visitors.â€
â€œThe colour-changing puzzles bring something genuinely fresh to the genre â€“ weâ€™ve had a real blast designing them,â€ adds Henry Hoffman, Fiddlesticks. â€œSome of the latter stages of the game are incredibly devious â€“ weâ€™ll be taxing parts of the brain untouched by previous games.â€
Hue will be available globally on Tuesday 23rd August for PC, PS4/Vita (cross-buy) and Xbox One for Â£11.99 / $14.99 / â‚¬14.99 with launch discounts where applicable.
