The Last Tinker: City of Colors launching this summer

Unity Games and German developer Mimimi Productions have announced that their action/adventure title The Last Tinker: City of Colors will be launching this summer.

The game will be available on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, as well as on consoles.

Unity describes the game thusly: "In a world where creativity has given way to conflict, a young street kid living in the slums of Colortown seeks to restore the spark of imagination to his hometown. As Koru, you must harness the power of color to defeat the Bleakness and make Colortown vibrant once again. A charming blend of modern platforming and multicolored style, The Last Tinker is a one-of-a-kind adventure."

Here are the game's features:
- Colorful and joyous out-of-this-world HD environments
- A cast of strange hand drawn off-beat characters
- Over 8 hours of action-packed puzzle and fighting gameplay
- Captivating story-line covering present-day issues on culture and racism
- Color blind mode for people with red-green color blindness
- Full Xbox 360 controller support on PC/Linux and DualShock 3 controller support on Mac
- Lots of Steam trading cards, badges, emoticons and profile background
- Cloud saving and Big Picture support via Steam

Johannes Roth, CEO of Mimimi Productions, hopes that the game will "pass on the legacy" of such games as Jak and Daxter and Banjo Kazooie. "We believe gamers of all ages will enjoy the unique blend of visual styles and the accessible modern gameplay of The Last Tinker: City of Colors."

The Last Tinker: City of Colors was recently awarded “Best Game in Show, Audience Choice” at the Casual Connect 2014 conference in Amsterdam. It went up against over 100 other indie games.
