  • Additional Details

    Please submit names not already taken by other games. Google the name followed by the word "game". For example, Googling "penumbra game" will reveal there is already a game using that name. Below are some more guidelines:

    • Don't use common words such as "mystery", "wonder", or obvious phrases such as "color quest".
    •  Good examples of uncommon words we like are: "schism" or "penumbra". (These have already been used as game titles)
    • Also good, names that point to the theme of colors, or lack of, but again not using using obvious words or phrases.
    • The game also has a sense of reality being altered so names can point to that theme as well (think of TV shows like Twilight Zone or Outer Limits).

    Here is a link to the trailer:

    Here is a short description of the game:

    "You arrive at the end of a desert road where a small abandoned cafe sits and a strange tower looms overhead. As you look around you notice everything has lost its color. All objects that once held vibrant lush tones of color are now a pale grey.  What has caused the all the rich colors to disappear? How can they be brought back?  As you explore, solve inventive puzzles, and uncover clues that restore the world back to its true colors, you’ll discover this strange place at the end of a deserted highway has its own mystery."
