About this blog

The early-aughts ubiquity of Flash was fantastic: A myriad of programmers tried out new ideas and obtained them up facing countless individuals very quickly. Considering that the way we find games has changed dramatically in the past decade - thanks to areas like Steam, Reddit and Polygon - it becomes much less probable that new gamers will find the jewels of yesteryear. For Your Majesty of colours, that will not be the situation.

Back in 2008, anybody with a good computer and internet browser can access countless matches immediately. The availability of Flash as a programming platform revolutionized the world wide web, as well as communities such as Newgrounds and Kongregate, it had been simple for programmers to upload games which countless individuals could quickly load up and perform with.

But today that Flash is supported on fewer devices, many games of yesteryear run the danger of being dropped in the aftermath of changing technologies. If these games are not adapted for modern apparatus, it will not be long till they become fully unplayable.

Some programmers were cutting their teeth using fundamental run-and-gun activity games, while some others had been researching the way the medium could produce new kinds of interactive fiction. I gravitated into the latter kind because, at that moment, more artistic and experimental matches were still brand new and intriguing to me.

You start each playthrough by stirring from the dark and taking on the use of an H.P. Lovecraft-inspired behemoth, who lives below the waves. You observe some balloons from the sky, which look alien to the monster you are playing as. Taking charge of one of its limbs, you click on balloons to bring them nearer to your eyes. Unexpectedly, the drab, monochromatic appearance of the game stinks away, and it explodes with colour. A variety of humans then look; the way you socialize with them either maliciously -- decides which end you get. Every interaction works out as a vignette, and their results each feel significant and take a good deal of weight.

The game's five distinct endings did not blow me away, but The Majesty of Colors does a fantastic job of packaging in a great deal of narrative despite using such a little number of factors.

I was thrilled to find that The Majesty of all Colors only obtained a contemporary remaster which was rebuilt from the ground up to operate current-generation apparatus. Rather than relying upon a Flash-based site to maintain the match on the internet, or the first founder hosting a mirror in their website, I finally have a copy of it to stay forever.
