Puppy Punch Productions and developer Finn Morgan’s new PC release, Colour Bind, is the latest addition to Steam Workshop. Colour Bind’s mind bending use of coloured gravity is now in the hands of their users to explore and create their own puzzles.
“One of my goals with Colour Bind was to fully explore the space of puzzles the game could have,” said Finn Morgan, creator of Colour Bind. “I included the level editor in the game partly because I’m looking forward to players showing me all the possibilities that I didn’t think of.”
Colour Bind is a platformer at heart that employs switches, lasers, geometrical objects, and a bouncy two-wheeled vehicle to manipulate gravity and reach your goal. The in-game level editor gives the user complete control to create, size, place, and colour these world objects to design their very own brain busting puzzle. Users can then upload their level to Steam Workshop and discover other user-created puzzles. Steam Workshop gives the Colour Bind community the ability to keep track of their favorite puzzle designers, create collections of their top levels, and even share those collections with friends.
With 50 singe player levels, 20 co-op levels, and 29 devilishly hard achievements already included in the game, Steam Workshop brings an ever-growing selection of new challenges.
Imagine a world where Newton’s Laws of Gravity are connected to Picasso’s Laws of Colour. In Finn Morgan’s devilish spin on the traditional physics-platform genre, the colour of objects is tied to the push and pull of gravity. You must manipluate switches and break through obstacles in ways that will make you question whether what goes up must, indeed, come down.
To see what we mean, check out the launch video on Youtube or download it from the Colour Bind site .
“Colour Bind” is now available on Steam and through Amazon for $9.99.
As an added bonus for puzzle players, Puppy Punch Productions is also announcing a contest with real trophies – not just Steam badges.
Be the first to complete all the game levels! Beat the secret levels in record time! Design a level and have it judged by “Colour Bind” designer, Finn Morgan, himself! And more!

Hey all! We finally have more Colour Bind news for you. No date yet, but we’ve been approved by Steam and will be coming out soon for PC & Mac. A Linux version is also on it’s way, but might show up after the initial release. We’ll have more info on a beta/demo, a new site dedicated to the game, and more very very soon. For now, here’s our new description:
Colour Bind is a physics platform-puzzler set in an abstract world where gravity is determined not by mass, but by colour. Navigate this unique world by manipulating colour and gravity to solve each level. Beating each unique puzzle in Colour Bind will take patience, intelligence, quick reflexes and sometimes even a helping hand from a friend.
A TRUE CHALLENGE: Over 50 unique puzzles with multiple solutions will keep you platforming for a long time. This game is hard. Early-90′s hard. Don’t be afraid to step back and think.
COLOUR-BASED PHYSICS: Change your colour and manipulate each level’s gravity to solve every puzzle. Primary colours have different gravities applied to them, and when combined form a secondary colour that takes the vector sum of that gravity.
A WORLD OF SECRETS: Take your time to explore every level. There’s a world of hidden solutions, distractions, and more to discover. Can you unlock every achievement?
PROCEDURAL MUSIC: Colour doesn’t only control your physical experience, but your aural as well. Each colour has a different music track, and combining and changing your colour will mix these tracks on the fly to transform your auditory experience.
PLAY WITH A FRIEND: 20 local co-op levels that take not only two hands, but two minds to defeat. It will take impeccable timing and skill to reach the end. The ultimate challenge for the ambidextrous gamer.
CREATE YOUR OWN LEVELS: ColourBind’s challenge doesn’t stop once you’ve beaten every level. Download new levels through Steam Workshop or create your own with ColourBind’s fully featured level editor for a never-ending experience!
LEADERBOARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS: Compete with your friends online to get the fastest times per level! Can you find the fastest alternate solutions and jump to the top of the leaderboards?
