Not only is Chicory a fun game, and not only did it speak to me on a profound level, it also made me want to be a better me. I’m not exaggerating nor using hyperbole, it’s a well-built experience with a tremendous amount of heart. It wants you to be you, and it wants you to know that the best you can do is always good enough.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is a game that surprised me in many ways - its purpose and intent bending and changing throughout playtime. I went in expecting something charming and cute with just enough depth to keep me invested. It gave me so much more than that. I received a charming and engaging puzzle game that dealt with genuine human emotions of imposter syndrome, depression, what we do for our art and so much more. I received a genuinely brilliant video game.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is an ambitious, absorbing, and creative Zelda-style adventure with some meaningful, heartfelt things to say about the creative process, self-doubt, and other big issues. Like its characters, Chicory isn’t perfect – its controls can be a bit clunky and maybe its painting tools aren’t as versatile as they could be – but it’s an easy game to love.
I went into Chicory a bit dubious, but it surpassed my expectations with flying colors. The world and its inhabitants are a delight, its puzzles remain clever throughout the journey, and its main painting mechanic is the perfect stress releaser. Chicory taught me never to judge a coloring book by its cover, and that you don’t have to be a master painter to have fun with colors.
Chicory lived up to my expectations and more. The traversal is a joy throughout, the puzzles brilliantly judged and the whole experience is a joy to play from start to finish. If this were not enough, the admirable approach to accessibility should be celebrated and congratulated. What really stood out after finishing the game, though, was how effectively it treated difficult issues of depression and feelings of low self-worth whilst never feeling too earnest or preachy.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is unlike anything you might experience this year, and you owe it to yourself to try it. It is a beautiful, whimsical game that comes to life the more you play it. It’s incredibly fun both on its own, and in the way it allows and encourages you to infuse your own creativity within it. It truly is a work of art!
Conforme avanzamos en la aventura podemos desbloquear diferentes partes secciones que, desde el menú, podemos ver coloreadas desde más o menos distancia. Si quitamos totalmente el zoom, el resultado de mi paso por Chicory: A Colorful Tale resulta indistinguible de los garabatos nerviosos de un niño. Uno que no tiene motivos para dejar de dibujar.
Chicory consigue exactamente lo que pretende: absorberte por su universo y encandilarte con su estructura. Un pincel como varita mágica capaz de pintar, resolver puzles y dar respuesta a muchas de las preguntas que te formula. Excelentemente localizado y con una banda sonora inolvidable, su único problema es el control con el mando, que sin ser incómodo es más preciso con un ratón en PC.
Sous ses traits épais et ses airs enfantins, Chicory abrite des défis bien corcés. Ensemble, le créateur Greg Lobanov (Wandersong) et la compositrice Lena Raine (Celeste) sont parvenus à façonner un univers généreux en exploration, en découvertes et en obstacles à franchir, offrant une durée de vie tout à fait correcte.
Dopo Wandersong, Lobanov e soci hanno fatto di nuovo centro e sono stati abili a strutturare la loro opera attorno ad una meccanica di gioco tanto semplice quanto geniale, quel pennello magico capace di ridare colore ad un mondo in bianco e nero e che viene usato per risolvere puzzle, per destreggiarsi nei pochi duelli o, ancora, semplicemente per aiutare e far felici gli abitanti delle città.
Chicory A Colorful Tale è un'avventura magnifica, dolce, raffinata, che colpisce dove fa più male dandoti però speranza per il futuro. Sia a livello narrativo che a livello artistico è semplice e proprio per questo perfetta. Il gameplay è vario e impegnativo quanto basta per rimanere interessati per tutta l'avventura e la struttura da metroidvania rende piacevole riesplorare gli ambienti.
