Celebrated indie publisher bags PC and console publishing rights to Hue, bringing Fiddlesticks’ stunning puzzle platformer to PC and consoles in Q1 2016.
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’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,” says Henry Hoffman, Creative Director, Fiddlesticks. “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.”
“We knew from the moment we laid eyes on it that Hue was a perfect fit for Curve,” adds Jason Perkins, managing director, Curve Digital. “It’s a genuinely innovative game, full of challenging platforming and wonderful puzzles – with real style and charm. This is the first of our 2016 games we’re announcing, and it’s a real statement of intent.”
Hue will be released on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Wii U in Q1 2016.
