About

In a one-color world, one scholar, working in one of the universities, suddenly discovers the phenomenon of color. But where she works, nobody needs her discovery. And even worse - the scientist is expelled from the university. At the same time, the color discovered by this scientist is spreading in her one-color world. In punishment, the scientist is sent to another world - the world of impossible flowers. Impossible colors are those colors that are invisible to the human eye, they are outside the visible spectrum.

The player plays for a little boy named Hue, who one morning wakes up and starts looking for eight visible сolors to save the scientist from the world of invisible colors.

Game mechanics based on color

In the game, objects can be seen, but with them you can do something only if the color of these objects is different from the color of the game's background. For example, you start with a black background, and you can see a black door on a black background - you can see its outline. But you can open it only if you change its color to some other one. or if you change the background color. And you can change the background color only when you find, "open" some color. For example, the first color to open in the game is Aqua. After you open this color, you can make this color the background color of the game. And then the door will be black and you will be able to open it. This technique is used in many games - but usually it is implemented only for one color, for example, white on black or vice versa. In Hue, the player deals with eight colors - after the opening of each next color, the game is correspondingly more complicated.

There are many objects in the game that you need to interact with in order to go further. And each object has to be made real by using the color mechanics described above. And also find a way to properly interact with the object itself. There are many puzzles in the game, and often they seem to be unresolved, but after the decision is finally found, the player is usually surprised how he could not see this decision from the very beginning.

The Mysteries of the Final

In addition to the fascinating mechanics, the game also has a story - a story about a woman researcher who discovered color for a one-color world. This story develops throughout the game, its fragments open gradually and in the end everything will turn into one picture.

Hue reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Very nice, little Game for in between. The Idea has been wonderfully implemented. The Puzzles are not too difficult, but in places you have to bend so many Brain Winding. The little Story, which is rounded out by Letters read by a Voice from the Off, completes the enigmatic Game somewhat, although this is only the Embellishment, but not decisive for playing. Even though in some Scenes Responsiveness is required, HUE still remains a quiet Game That does not require Action Inserts. Nevertheless, the Game principle would certainly have Potential for a Metroidvania, which would therefore know how to entertain for longer. Anyone who likes puzzle Platformer of a slightly special Kind and has no other Games on the Pile of Shame, ESPECIALLY in the Summer Hole, should have played HUE. For the small Scope, the Price is okay, who is waiting for a Sale definitely doesn't do anything wrong. Rating: 8/10

Such a pretty and atmospheric Game has probably rarely been seen < 3 With the Set, everything would have been said. In Detail:-despite (or even because of?) Minimalism great Graphics-equally pleasant Soundtrack-good Controls, too and especially with Controllers-am not such a story fanatic (especially not in such Games), but yes, is beautifully made and kept emotional-largely "nice" (= pleasant) Puzzles, towards the Finale Slightly heavier The Duration of the Game is optimal, with me it was a good 5h. I don't find that too short for a little Puzzle Jewel. It has increased well, 3/4 of the Game you gradually gather the Colours you can use and then come a few more cracking Tasks (and even a new Mechanic) before the Game ends at the right Moment. In two Places I once got stuck for a Quarter Of An hour, otherwise all the Puzzles are easily recognizable and solvable in logical Stages. I am completely convinced and thrilled and recommend it without Ifs or buts:-)

Hue Is a little puzzle, adventure game. You play the little Boy named Hue and with the Help of his Ability, you have to cross the World in Search of his Mother. As the Game progresses, you'll get Colors. With these, you can change the Background Color of the World. This disappears objects of the same Color to be able to avoid Obstacles and Dangers. In the Game there are several Letters distributed, which tell the Story bit by Bit. With a Game time of ~ 4 Hours, you're done with the Story. The Music is very pleasant and thus offers a nice Overall Gaming experience. For Success, 100% are relatively light. One level or another Is a bit more difficult and requires a little more Skill than the Other. You have to find all the hidden Cups in the Game, some of which are hidden. What might be a bit annoying: To get some Cups, you need the Colors. In Other words, you have to play some Levels a second Time later. For the 100% you play ~ 5 Hours. There is a Guide with Videos about the Locations of the Cups: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=768169562
