The Last Tinker: City of Colors, an action adventure from Munich-based Mimimi Productions, is in development on consoles and Linux, Mac and Windows PC for release this summer, publisher Unity Games announced today.
Mimimi originally unveiled the game in late 2011 as Tink, and that early prototype won the Best Project 2012 award at Game Connection 2011. Now known as The Last Tinker: City of Colors, the game stars a young boy, Koru, who lives in the slums of a place called Colortown. Koru must overcome the Bleakness in order to restore color to the city.
According to Mimimi, The Last Tinker offers eight hours of action including puzzles and combat, and its story addresses cultural issues like racism. The platformer is bursting with color, as you can see in the trailer above, and Mimimi is also including a special mode for players who suffer from red-green colorblindness. The PC version of The Last Tinker will be available on Steam, and will include Steam trading cards as well as support for Big Picture mode and cloud saves. Xbox 360 controller support will be available in the Linux and Windows versions, while the Mac version will be compatible with the PlayStation 3's DualShock 3.
Unity Games, the new publishing division of Unity engine creator Unity Technologies, announced its first slate of publishing projects earlier this year. The list includes titles such as Black Tower Studios' Archangel and N-Fusion Interactive's Space Noir. You can see 23 screenshots of The Last Tinker: City of Colors in the gallery below.
