Colorless is a short game revolving around eight specific levels with a focus on co-operation and the concept of closeness.
While players move around freely in the world, the camera pans out when the players are further away from eachother. The two main characters have different skill sets and they need to be combined in order to overcome obstacles and take care of enemies. Basic skills are running, jumping, kicking, sliding, opening doors and climbing. Leveldesign force the players to split up but, the only way to regenerate health is to stay close to eachother, the most effective way of recharging energy is by hugging!
Colorless was awarded “Best Serious Game” at Gotland Game Awards 2010.
