This is from Fiddlesticks' press release, which can be read in its
entirety here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0J0P8hq5lzdUmdOSkFmVWhPV3M
/Unique colour-matching mechanic, offering a new twist on the
/A heartfelt story that touches on themes of love, loss, existence
/A world full of lively characters to talk to, each with their own
personality and story./
/Stark silhouetted art style with bright, bold colours./
/Over 30 original music tracks, composed exclusively for Hue. /
/Professionally voiced narration by Anna Acton and Matthew Wade,
some of the UK’s best television talent./
/*Full colourblind support, using symbols as a colour aid.*/
/Razer Chroma, Corsair RGB plus many more coloured LED devices
supported on Windows/
So it doesn't look like the company made a big fuss about its colorblind
support: the detail was just thrown in as a bulletpoint.
That said, if you go to the video options menu, the "COLOURBLIND"
setting is at the top of the list:
This may be the reason why the feature is getting so much press.
On a sidenote, I downloaded the game tonight and played it for a bit.
The color masking is a really neat gameplay mechanic. I also opted to
leave the symbols on because they don't get in the way at all and
actually help a bit.
