This is a re-release of the original Chromatics with significant improvements. The original game was published on indiegamestand, however due to the website seemingly shutting down I've decided to give the game a face lift and release it here for free. This new release of the game was built off of a late demo build as the original full release was lost somewhere in my files and I wasn't able to dig around for it, so there are some noticeable downgrades in certain parts of the background layers, but aside from that, the game is intact . If I do manage to find the original release, I will also upload it for free as extra content.

Original release description:

Grab a colour wheel, you may need it.

Chromatics is a puzzle platformer revolving around the usage of basic colour theory. You must understand the basics, Primary, Secondary, and Complimentary colours.

The character you play as has a basic black and white default state, but can change to any of the 3 primary colours. In these coloured states, the player can contact any surface that is the same colour as them, any grey surface, and any secondary colour surface that would require the player’s colour to be created. (eg. Red can touch Red, Orange, and Purple.) The black and white player can contact any coloured surface.

Each coloured state gives the player new abilities. Red increases speed, Blue allows wall jumping/climbing, and Yellow allows high jumping.


There are no enemies, instead the game environment completely changes depending on the player’s coloured state. A safe passage for a player with the blue state might be incredibly dangerous for a player in the red state.
