I'm really enjoying this game, but why wasn't a real life color wheel used? Last time I checked, green wasn't a primary color. It teaches kids incorrect mixing of colors to make other colors.

Hey InvisibleTune,
The color wheel liight uses is additive, like lights are in real life. You're probably thinking of subtractive colors, as are used in painting (red yellow blue). So the colors in Liight are true to life — just not in they way we usually 'mix' colors (especially as kids). Back-lit monitors, televisions, stage lights, etc., all use RGB as primaries, so if you're into web design or any CG you're familiar with them as well.

see here: additive vs. subtractive primaries:

glad you're enjoying the game, too!

It seems like the hardest thing to think is that red and green make yellow, because somehow psychologically yellow just doesn't resemble red at all. It seems weird that we include two colours between red and green in the rainbow, but we don't even bother to care about ignoring cyan between green and blue. Human perception of colour is so screwed up. Also, it makes me laugh that our red receptors see violet light, so we can't even tell the difference between real indigo or violet light vs combining red light with blue light. Purple is such a lie.

Ahh... thanks for setting me straight Roland. Very cool. Anyone want to exchange some creations?

Just finished all of the puzzles! The final puzzle "Gladiators" lived up to its name. It wasn't the toughest in the game, but definitely in the top 10.
