Chicory: A Colorful Tale, which was originally introduced to the world as Drawdog, is the new game from the creator of Wandersong, and if the demo is any indication of its quality, holy shit, this is going to be an absolute blast.
It's still only in the beginning stages of development, with a just-birthed Kickstarter campaign hoping to secure funding to help make this a reality. So far, I really like what I’ve seen. This is a 2D adventure starring a would-be hero who doesn’t seem to realize just how unqualified they are for the job. Luckily, the locals are here to let them know as bluntly as possible, while still managing to keep it all somewhat lighthearted and fun.
Things start out fairly uneventful with the main character, named Pizza, happening across the famed brush of the titular Chicory, who has gone missing under mysterious circumstances. This brush has the ability to add colors to the dreary world that surrounds you, and you’ll use it for all sorts of things like redecorating the locals’ houses, gardening, solving puzzles, and eventually even a bit of fighting.
