I ended up liking Chicory much more than I first anticipated; at a first glance it looked like a nice game to play inbetween something more "substantial", as I sometimes do. Looks can be deceiving, however, as this turned out to be one of my favorite indie games in a while.

- The story was surprisingly deep and emotional in a way I wasn't expecting at first
- I love the central painting mechanic and the way it ties in to the themes of the aforementioned story and characters
- The soundtrack by Lena Raine is amazing, and I now find myself listening to it regularly while working
- The artstyle is really great as well
- The game length is also perfect; not too long, not too short

A Colorful Tale also had a satisfying platinum trophy to get, which was not a walk-in-the-park, but not frustrating either.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a cozy, relaxing, deep, emotional, therapeutic experience, give Chicory: A Colorful Tale a try.
