Progress Update - Shouldn't Be Long Now!
  • Level Ranks - see how well you performed on a level.
  • New tile set and menu designs - basically all the art (except for the characters) has been redesigned to have a more polished look while still retaining the simplicity of the original design.
  • Server Browsing - You won't need to manually type in IP addresses or even know other players in order to play the game.
I plan to get new screenshots and new trailers to show off the new changes. So check back soon and be sure to check us out on Twitter @ColorfulLifeVG and Facebook!

Description
Release date: Late 2014
Colorful Life is a split-screen co-operative maze game. Four players are trapped and must work together to find the exit. However, each player sees a slightly different manifestation of the maze. One player's actions can slightly alter the maze of their allies. Not only must you work together using your unique abilities to escape, you must also discover why you are here in the first place.

Current Features
  • Local 4-player Support
  • Controller Support
  • Map Creation Tool - build your own levels!
  • PC Support

Currently Planned Features
  • Online Support (In-Progress)
  • Single Player Support
  • Linux and Mac Support
  • Steam Workshop for Custom Levels

Mechanics Description

We are planning for the game to always be in a split screen view whether you are playing online or not. We feel this will help to promote some cooperation and communication between players.

Death!
All the gray spaces are dangerous. They slowly drain the color out of the player until the player is absent of color and dies (the player will flash between a dark gray and black to signify dying). The white spaces are safe areas and will restore lost color to the player. They also act as checkpoints - when a player dies, they return to the last entered white space.

The four players also have eight (8) shared lives per level. If all 8 lives are lost the game ends and the level will need to be restarted.

Abilities!
I also mentioned unique player abilities. Each player has an ability that is designed to help everyone through a specific trap or obstacle. I listed them out below with some information.
  • Red Player has the ability to break cracked walls found throughout the maze. This allows other players who have a cracked wall in the same spot to move past it as well (breaks for all players).
  • Blue Player has the ability to move over pits found in the maze. Usually pits are accompanied by a lever that will generate a bridge (the light blue pieces in the video) across the gaps for the others to move across it.
  • Green Player has the ability to heal players for a short time, essentially acting as a mobile white space (without the checkpoint feature). Be careful though since there is a cooldown on this ability.
  • Yellow Player has the ability to dash (think Pegasus Boots from Zelda games). The player can not turn while dashing and can only stop dashing when a wall is hit. It can be dangerous to use this ability without knowing whats ahead, but it is also the only ability to get players past the spike traps.

Love the controller support and map creation tool. Would be even better if my friends got this game so we could do multiplayer.
