(I Fell in Love With) The Majesty of Colors

(I Fell in Love With) The Majesty of Colors begins with the following bit of exposition: "Last night I dreamed I was an immense beast, floating in darkness. I knew nothing of the surface world until I fell in love with the majesty of colors." Whether the story that emerges from there is heartwarming or horrific depends entirely on your choices.

Developer Gregory Weir describes The Majesty of Colors as as "a pixel-horror Flash game" and "a tale of love, loss, and balloons with five different endings." It's best experienced with as little introduction as possible, so I think I'll leave it at that.

I found endings A,B,D,E within 10 minutes. I can't figure out ending C yet.

C was the toughest ending, I ended up having to search for help to get it. But rushing to get every ending kind of misses the point; I think taking your time and enjoying the dreamy tone (and seeing which ending you naturally gravitate to) is more interesting.

It is a bonus that it's kind of short. Everyone should experience it.

I don't like what that says about me

I enjoyed the game. It was somehow very relaxing even when I was mean.

Discovered all of the endings. Very nice little game.

I agree.

Wonderful dreamy kind of game. Great find.

Nice. I didn't know how to start the game properly, so I ended up playing with balloons for five minutes.

I enjoyed that.

I played it a while ago. I liked how it presented the narrative a lot but it's basically a one page story.

Pretty cool for a one man show. Reminded me of the old 2600 Activision carts with the beautiful color pallet.

I really enjoyed the tentacle mechanic. I tried to take the kid to the helicopter and it kept getting scared which was great. Very nice game.

I've done 3 out of 5 i think...i spent ages trying to attach the balloons to the kid to get the helicopter to take him instead of flying off scared.

I laterally think in the wrong way sometimes.

I tried to attack the helicopter with a shark!

I honestly thought the game had been mentioned here earlier in an Act Casual article. This tends to be where I am informed about the cooler flash games I have experienced.
