Hue’s world is black and white, according to everyone around him. But upon discovering his mother’s research, who has disappeared without a trace, Hue discovers there is more to their mono-world existence.
Having already won a slew of awards before it’s even released, this is a title that doesn’t need the hard sell. Instead, just watch the trailer for this indie puzzle platformer, coming to Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, Xbox One and PC on August 23.
As Hue uncovers new details involving his mother, 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. Along the way, Hue will meet a diverse cast of imaginative characters in a witty and wonderful world filled with inventive puzzles and the tendency to instill a genuine sense of wonder. Hue also features support for a multitude of colour-changing LED devices, and offers a full-blown colourblind mode by utilizing unique symbols as a color aid.
“Hue has been almost universally loved whenever we’ve taken it out to shows,” said Dan Da Rocha, Director at 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, Creative Director at Fiddlesticks. “Some of the latter stages of the game are incredibly devious – we’ll be taxing parts of the brain untouched by previous games.”
