Color By is a 2D puzzle platformer game with a focus on exploration and discovery. Simple yet complex; this game has a series of interweaving systems to drive its core experience.

In this game, you paint the world around you. Platforms cannot be interacted with until they are painted! As you progress through the game, you discover items that you can use to paint with as well as items which change how you interact with different colored paint blocks. The level of complexity in the different levels is layered by the colors, items, and interactivity with the blocks. Nearly every mechanic in the game (even respawning!) is a viable mechanic to be used to solve the puzzles.
