Sometimes the world can seem colorless. Yet when we try to add some of our own – a splash of bright red across, say, a bus shelter – we’re on the wrong side of a vandalism accusation. So we turn again to the escaped world of gaming , jumping into this absolute charmer of the emotional burden of creativity. Okay, that sounds pretty exhausting, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Chicory: A colorful tale sees you take control from a shredder keeper (named after your favorite dish) to the Chicory keeper themselves, who is the latest in a long line of magical brush bearers who bring them to life. helps to skillfully add color to the world. Chicory is gone and left the brush behind for Superintendent Jaffa Cakes to grab the hairs and throw Bob Ross on the game world’s candy ass.

It’s a slick, slick, and brilliantly polished thing – we appreciate that it’s a slightly reductive statement, but there’s no independent jank here. It has AAA title flair, as well as game time: you could easily spend over 20 hours in Chicory’s wonderfully realized world, interacting with its well-written and deeply likable characters, and solving environmental puzzles based on coloring with a seemingly ever-growing number of different art tools that brilliantly balance versatility and ease of use. If we can criticize anything, there is obviously a world of difference between using the DualSense to paint and using a mouse in the PC version.

An independent adventure with the confidence of big hitters like Subtitle , Chicory: A Colorful Tale is one hell of a pleasant surprise that excels at every level where it is possible to do so. Would it be too overused to say that it belongs to an art gallery?
