October 31, 2018 – Frankfurt, Germany – The adventure game genre is dead?! No problem – everybody in this game is dead as well! The German indie game developer CMMN CLRS (pronounced: Common Colors) announces a creepy-but-cute 2D-Point’n’Click adventure game in which you play as Prim, Death’s daughter, on her journey through the Land of the Dead. This unique story idea is supported by black-and-white, Tim Burtony visuals.
Over the ages, he’s been called by many names: Thanatos, the Grim Reaper, the Pale Rider, the Angel of Death… Who would have guessed that the most frightening of them all – at least to him – would be “Dad”? Every night, Death’s teenage daughter Prim has the same dream: An oddly familiar human boy cries out for her help. Needless to say that our heroine tries to answer the call. There’s just one tiny problem: The Grim Reaper has strictly forbidden her to enter the Realm of the Living – she’s not ready for the immense power she’d develop there, he claims. Unfortunately, when Prim finds a way to trick her father and travel to Earth, it painfully turns out that Thanatos’s presentiments have been right all along… Play as Death’s daughter and switch between the Land of the Dead and the Realm of the Living, solve puzzles, meet restless souls and finally uncover a carefully-hidden secret…
Being a modern contribution to the genre on the outside, but a classical adventure game at heart, PRIM combines beautifully hand-drawn, full HD backgrounds and characters à la “Deponia” with the challenging puzzles and self-reflective humor found in classics like “Monkey Island”. Likewise, a complex and gripping narrative goes hand in hand with a simple one-click interface. On top of it all lies an epic, orchestral soundtrack supported by professional voice acting. What makes the game stand out, at least in our opinion, is the distinctive art style developed by our lead artist, Mexican comic artist Oskar Alvarado, an expert for the dark and macabre.
Who we are…
We’re CMMN CLRS, an independent developer of adventure games from Frankfurt (Germany). Right after our founding in May 2016, we’ve published our debut game “The Diary of a Roadie”, which got ranked #2 in Game Jolt’s Adventure Jam 2016. “Sidekick High”, our second game, also started as a game jam project and got ranked #7 out of 122 games in Adventure Jam 2017. Due to overwhelmingly positive reactions from gamers and press alike, we published a post-jam version a few months later. The following year, we created “door”, which made it to rank #12 in Adventure Jam 2018. PRIM is our first full-length adventure game.
