About this game

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.

« Ah... dear fellow traveller... I am so happy to meet you and to travel with you along this rocky path to let a surprising story unfold. Do not be too quick to judge! At least not before you know how it ends. This story is both rough and delicate... as repulsive as it is endearing... melancholy and joyful... but most of all, it is a tale that is deeply human and profoundly singular. So let me introduce this young, colour blind boy who, from birth, has only ever perceived the world in black and white. Colours, to him, are as abstract as faith to the atheist. Yet, they plagued his dreams, night and day! This boy's name is Désiré and his life path will surely surprise you. But enough chit-chat! Go and find out for yourself... »

4/5 for the game itself, finding out the puzzles yourself is really nice but I've had to go search for the answer more than once only to find out it was something/an object I missed while searching which can be a bit frustrating. But the missing star is because I'm currently having problems with loading the "2003" part of the game, whenever I finish photo copying the pictures around the school it just kicks me out right after.

Someone once told me that any expression of art is an expression of the self. I have to say, this game hit that. There's a lot of things that resonate with me, and even a few hours after finishing the game to its entirity I am still reeling. The narrative begs for patients (something I've noticed many of these reviewers don't possess) and much could be (and was) lost in translation. It definitely pushes what society considers comfortable. Probably 18+ if we're honest. The gameplay was a little buggy in some places, puzzles took much trial and error, and it would take from the experience. Perhaps a mechanics walk through in key points of the game (ex. Shifting pov between Désiré and Andy) could benefit the experience as a whole. Overall, good game. Keep creating. Can't wait to see what you do next.

The story is intriguing and nuanced but I found myself losing stock of the plot. Not sure what the point of the beach level is. Puzzles presented some challenge that kept me interested but there is no real momentum with the game and I could see less patient players getting bored easily. I did however enjoy the music and art style. Not a bad game considering it is free to play. One thing that kind of bugs me is that the backpack menu doesn't stay open once you click it, took me forever to find it and it's annoying having to open it every time.
