App description: Désiré is a poetic point and click adventure game in black and white.

When the schoolteacher asks Désiré why he didn't draw the sun like the other pupils, he replies spontaneously: « It's always night in my head. »

Désiré is colour-blind from birth and he will lead you into in world of black and white. He marches on hesitantly, as life never brought him much joy. From a tender age, he is going to meet several characters who will elicit in Désiré intense emotions and alter his vision in surprising ways. Is colour at the end of the road?

The game is, at its core, a critique of the modern world and of the perverting nature of a consumer, profit-obsessed society.

The game contains 4 chapters, 50+ scenes, 40+ characters and a lot of riddles.

This is definitely a strange one. I am curious to see where it goes. I got to the homophobic grandpa so far. I started working on a walkthrough if anyone needs help.

Well, this is interesting. I am happy to see art-games and...so long as this doesn't get into a weird liesure suit Larry situation, lol, I am down to buy the rest. I checked out the website at seccio.com but it didn't really have an update....but the GS,e was listed as a 2016 release. So...be a bit...

Is this like The Wizard of Oz - does it all become colorful half way through?

Aww. I really like this one so far.
The trailer seems to show that the game follows Desire through his life which would be cool.
There's some typos but the writing's decent, and I really like the (hints at) story so far, maybe just because I can relate it to some of my personal experiences.
I'm not usually into point'n'click adventures but this one seems like it'll be more story-focused, I'll definitely buy when it's out.

I'm kind of afraid of where this story is going. I liked the first scene but the second scene was more than a little worrying. And how did this game get a 4+ age rating!? Don't read the spoiler unless you've finished the prologue. Hopefully the views of the homophobic grandpa won't be repeated throughout the game from other characters. Or worse yet, if the story is centered around "fixing" the boy. I hope I'm wrong on both. Also, I don't know how old the bully is(I'm assuming teenager under 18) but the idea of taking pictures of him in a sexual situation is beyond creepy. I'm surprised this got past Apples review process.

Did it really get a 4+ rating? I guess someone at Apple is sleeping on the job.
I agree, it's odd so far and haven't had a chance to play past that part yet. But I'm intrigued enough to continue and see where it goes.

Yeah the game website states that it's inappropriate for under 16 though. Do you have the full game? I may give it a shot when it's released if I know in advance that the story doesn't go where I mentioned. It definitely has potential.
