Pigsels Media announce their new game "Coloropus".
Coloropus is an underwater themed adventure/puzzle game about a little color-addicted octopus.
-- Gameplay is based on solving color mixing and physics puzzles -- player can explore large ocean world, fight with foes, collect upgrades and interact with NPCs and environment.
-- No use of spoken and written language. All interactions between the game character and NPCs come as little animated comics in speech bubbles telling main storyline and providing a player with hints.
-- Seamless game immersion: main menu, progress, credits -- everything is part of game itself.
-- There is karma system in game -- if Coloropus dies he goes either to Heaven or Hell depending on playing style. Player can return to the place he ended up dying after successful escape and resurrection.
-- Underwater atmosphere is carefully grained and sustained -- dozens of beautiful hand-drawn locations scattered around the sea from peaceful and calm places down to deep, dark and creepy labyrinths going hand by hand with a number of corresponding ambient soundtracks.
-- Game story tells about Coloropus and his adventures while struggling to save his girlfriend Pinky who got kidnapped by strange creature just after they met the first time.
