Coloropus is an underwater adventure puzzle quest game about an octopod creature named Coloropus trying to save his girlfriend.

  • Gameplay is based on solving color mixing and physics puzzles -- player can explore large ocean world, fight with foes, collect upgrades and interact with NPCs and environment.
  • No use of spoken and written language. All interactions between the game character and NPCs come as little animated comics in speech bubbles telling main storyline and providing a player with hints.
  • Seamless game immersion: main menu, progress, credits -- everything is part of game itself.
  • There is karma system in game -- if Coloropus dies he goes either to Heaven or Hell depending on playing style. Player can return to the place he ended up dying after successful escape and resurrection.
  • Underwater atmosphere is carefully grained and sustained -- dozens of beautiful hand-drawn locations scattered around the sea from peaceful and calm places down to deep, dark and creepy labyrinths going hand by hand with a number of corresponding ambient soundtracks.
  • Game story tells about Coloropus and his adventures while struggling to save his girlfriend Pinky who got kidnapped by strange creature just after they met the first time.

Well, support for flash on linux has been termindated. Also, flash games always seem kinda.. limited and sluggish.. I don't know. I prefer games like Aquaria that have a solid c++ basis

Coloropus is made in Flash and build as Adobe AIR application for Mac OS X. Windows version uses MDM Zinc 4.0 as wrapper (that provides DirectX full screen modes).
Though we started to make Coloropus when Flash Player didn't support Stage3D (hardware rendering), now FlashPlayer can use GPU to render graphics. This changes the way flash games look and work.

By the way, Linux version of Zinc is very buggy and that was the reason we haven't released Coloropus for Linux yet. Still working on it.

I think this game was made in MMF2. Create-games.com

Not every artist with an idea can/wants to learn a programming language, especially if they already know how to draw.

HTML5 is quickly replacing Flash in the indie scene, so I think linux users can look forward to that.
