Baf's Guide

In this "demo", you reveal blueness in various elemental phenomena (one per room). Intriguing idea, but not well fleshed out, even for a Textfire demo - although it is one of the few in the pack that has actual puzzles.

A textfire demo game about colors, June 5, 2017

The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.

This game showed extensive use of color, and came just a few months before Photopia.

You travel from colorful area to colorful area. Each area has a way to change the color, but it can be hard to figure out each color change.

A really pretty game.
