Did you already seen this? The Unfinished Swan is an upcoming title for the Wii probably XBox (see update below) . The world is pure black and white. You make use of your weapon, that is some kind of “paintball-device” right in the opposite color of the world you poke in. You have find your way through the maze by coloring the walls of the – at first – invisible walls. This is a clever use of textures, isn’t it?

It fits into our series of games, that focus on gameplay, rather than being eye-candy at the first place, although almost all of this games are also visually appealing, just because of the lack of colors. For example check Echochrome or the Otawa Ascii-Game.

Update: The game is currently being prototyped on the XNA, so it is very likely, that this game will be released on the XBox. I also found the currently official webpage. The author Ian Dallas is also keeps on blogging about his process. Thanks to Frank for the advice!

    Thanks for the hint, that sounds like a fantastic concept. I think there is a little mistake in your description: The game’s being developed on XDN, therefore I think its platform is the XBOX 360 instead of the Wii.
