UK publisher Curve Digital has confirmed that it is bringing indie title Hue to consoles early next year.
A unique puzzle platformer which allows you to shift the colour of the level to overcome traps and hazards, Hue has already gained a lot of attention on the indie dev circuit.
Here's what Fiddlesticks Creative Director Henry Hoffman had to say:
Hue's been attracting a huge amount of attention since we started showing it at indie expos, but we've been particularly impressed with Curve's enthusiasm for the game. Partnering with the leading publisher of indie games will enable us to make a real impact at launch and will hopefully ensure that Hue is a worldwide hit when it releases next year.
And here's the full press release:
Curve Digital, the world's leading publisher of indie games, has today announced that it has signed the PC and console publishing rights to Hue, a stark puzzle platformer where the aesthetics and mechanics are intertwined.
Already a huge hit on the indie expo scene – where it has picked up a number of awards from the likes of Game Connection, Develop Conference, Casual Connect and Reboot, among others – Hue is a remarkable game with a unique aesthetic that plays as good as it looks.
When Hue's mother becomes trapped in the mono world, he gains access to the colour ring – a device which allows him to alter the perception of colour. Embarking on a mission to foil the evil intentions of the despicable Doctor Gray, Hue begins a journey which will not only shape him as person, but alter the world forever.
Key to the game is the ability to shift specific colours, a thrilling game mechanic which offers a host of new puzzle possibilities. Players can manipulate the environment in order to reveal hidden routes, avoid threats, remove hazards, defeat adversaries, create platforms and more…the gameplay possibilities are endless.
Hue has been funded by Kuju Startups, a video games investment fund who help great indie developers bring their dream ideas to market.
Hue is also coming to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
