Monochrome by ApoorvaJ

[raw]
made by ApoorvaJ for LD28 (COMPO)
Monochrome is a short and moody point-and-click story-based experience.

A cold winter night. An old man stands in front of the window, gazing into the horizon. Colors evade him, and so does the light. What is it out there, that he is drawn to?

Instructions:
Click on objects to see their descriptions. Click on the ground to move.

Interesting. There are two entries called "monochrome". I couldn't figure out what to do aside from clicking on all the objects. It's more an interactive piece of artwork than it is a game, no?

Damn, can't score lower than top marks on Mood, what an emotionally driven story. Well done!

Wasn't fun, I didn't understand what I was supposed to do, got bored after examining objects for around 5 minutes. Really nice mood though, poor old man.

The mood and the artwork are great. I'm a bit frustrated by the slow pace, though; it almost feels like the game is lagging and I must admit it didn’t motivate me enough to play to the end.

Nice one! Simple enough to navigate, touching enough to keep on exploring and the subtle color changes made it more "interaction inviting"

The only word that comes to my mind after playing this game is "Beautiful". I love the way you've used the theme with a simple story but still created something that's deep.

Wow, I *love* the mood you set. Stroke of brilliance, draining color from the objects you interact with.

I almost shed a tear! Great art game, both from a graphics perspective but especially from a story perspective. I started playing being absolutely sure of the ending, but the actual resolution took me by surprise. Good job!

Unity, eh? From the sound of it, this is a pretty epically cool game that I won't get to play because there isn't a linux build. //(T.T)\\
