The trailer also provides a look at aspects of Chicory’s gameplay. As a small dog wielding a paint brush capable of returning color to the world around them, players must help the game’s inhabitants restore peace and order to the world. This could mean giving a town a new paint job, solving puzzles or even facing down an encroaching darkness that threatens to drain the entire world of life.
Likewise, bits of dialogue hint at the game’s story. While the protagonist is visibly excited and ready to take on their duties at first, later scenes show them struggling with the weight of re-coloring the entire world. Brief interactions with other characters show they have some weighty problems to deal with, and the journey ahead of them won’t be as straightforward as they once expected.
It’s a worthwhile teaser of what’s to come, and can be viewed in its entirety down below.
First appearing on Kickstarter back in 2019, Chicory is the latest game from Greg Lobanov, the creator of Wandersong. It also features music composed by Lena Raine, who has created music for titles like Celeste and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
