Free visual story game

Watercolors is a free indie game that takes only a few hours to complete. The title uses poems, lyrics, and other lines to tell its story about death. Watercolors uses a brilliant soundtrack that mixes in with the background art’s colour palette to bring the story to life.

Almost an anthology

Watercolors plays in a very odd manner that reminds one of either art, poetry, or short story anthologies. Sadly, this aspect can quickly make it feel dull and boring if you don’t enjoy literature or visual novels. There are many lines from different songs and poems that convey the story.

Beautiful soundtrack

Watercolors features a beautiful and peaceful soundtrack that fits its anthology-like gameplay and slow speed. You’ll also find the title’s OST available as an add-on, should you enjoy it in the game. The soundtrack is suitable for meditative or relaxing usage due to the nature of this text-based VN's gameplay.

Minimalist experience

Watercolors is a minimalist game, with only a handful of notable features such as its background, music, and story. Clicking your mouse is the only control option available to you. The soundtrack is also extremely short, making it repetitive if you have a slow reading speed. 

Short journeys

The game is relatively short, lasting only half an hour if you have a high reading speed. The max length of the title when you purposefully read slowly doesn’t reach two hours. The game is short but ideal for keeping you occupied and engaged for at least 30 minutes.

Death and life

Watercolors is a story about death, and it continues this theme throughout the entire painting-like gameplay. The narrative aims to make you contemplate the end of life and serves as an excellent medium for anyone worried about it.

Serene endings

Watercolors is a great indie game. However, you have to give the file exception from your antivirus program before you start playing. It’s similar to other titles by independent developers such as Toripon and Hylics. The game is an interesting experience that takes at least half an hour to complete, depending on your reading speed.
