by maxim - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You Only Get One Color is a cooperative puzzle experience. Create and mix color to traverse obstacles and reach the mythical rainbow monkey.


Left Mouse to reset colors on your arms

Click and Hold the Right Mouse on one of your arms to transfer your color. Touch another player who is transferring theirs to mix color.

(Multiplayer is still untested let me know in the comments whether others can join your game or you can join theirs)

Has great potential, only the push force needs to be stronger to pass the level.

I agree with wiz3kid. This game has a lot of potential, but it was difficult to understand what to do at some points. A tutorial level would help. There's still a few hours left, so you might want to try that.

Couldn't add a tutorial because I was asleep the last few hours of the comp XD. There's now some info on controls at the start that should hopefully add some context to your abilities. Also there seems to be a bug where certain clients have a much slower movement speed than others. I have no clue what's causing this :(

I think I see where this is going. It was really hard to play for some reason, and the right mouse button that was supposed to be held down kept popping up a menu instead, so I'm not sure I was able to play it correctly.

Very unique concept, with a lot of potential if done right. It's a little difficult to complete with so few people on right now though. Two issues stand out to me, mouse controls don't seem to do anything, at least not in the web version, and what's the number text field for? Overall a cool idea, good job!

Tutorial would be helpful, and maybe a bit fast of movement. Interesting and thoughtful concept tho.

Unfortunately I can't connect. There is just black screen after I press join game button.

I like this. It was hard to get to grips with, thrown in the deep end and you can't communicate with one another.

Very interesting idea. Also want a tutorial level =) And maybe some bots who can help with colors, if I understand how to play...

Feels a bit different when it comes to design. Both game and visual..

Dec 16, 2013 @ 11:58am

Couldn't understand what to do, I wont rate it.

A bit too tricky to figure out, could use a lot more polish :). But great idea! (And great use of the theme)

Like others are saying, the potential seems amazing here. Reminds me of my submission, which was also a simplistic looking FPS made in Unity. Please check it out if you haven't :)

Lovely! Too bad I couldn't get anyone else to play it! :(

Great idea, but very hard to understand at first.
I cant seem to pass the second obstacle, is it possible alone ?

Challenging game ! The multiplayer idea is really interesting ! Great work !

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
