A few weeks ago I wrote a post on a few indie games I’m looking forward to. Had this game been announced at that time, it certainly would have been included in that post.
Announced two days ago, August 15th, the game has already reached 100% funding on kickstarter – here’s a link if you’re interested in checking it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/greglobanov/chicory-a-colorful-tale/description
I’ve been following Lena Raine, the composer of Celeste’s soundtrack and now the composer of Chicory’s soundtrack, on Twitter, which is how I found out about this game.
In Chicory you play as a dog that uses a magic paintbrush to draw, solve puzzles, and otherwise interact with the world. You need the paintbrush to restore color to a black and white, color-sapped world.
I love the whole concept of restoring color to the world – I actually had a similar video game concept in mind involving color restoration, but implemented differently. I’m seriously considering learning video gaming development so I could actually carry that out…
This game looks so cute and artsy, and I’ve already added it to my game wishlist. I hope (as for many other games) that it comes to the switch. The creators seem very interested in bringing Chicory to consoles so I think it’s highly likely.
Some streamers have been given demos of the game, so head on over to YouTube or Twitch if you wanna check out any gameplay!
