Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ten People Ten Colors (2019) is a puzzle game where you help walking figures get to the exit. It's unusual because you can only control the level's background colour. Using the colour wheel you can match the background to foreground elements, which makes them disappear to help your characters progress.

Play involves using colour in this way. Sometimes you can make blocking elements disappear so you can proceed. Other-times you can make a particular coloured peg disappear so a platform angles down, or falls to the floor.

This simple mechanic is slowly complicated with new layers. Multiple characters. Different colour characters. The use of physics to propel people over gaps, or freeze them in the air to stop momentum. More complex levels. Each new challenge can be overcome with the single, simple, colour wheel control, but requires deep thinking and forward thinking.
