“Désiré is a poetic point-and-click adventure game in black and white.
When the schoolteacher asks Désiré why he didn’t draw the sun like the other pupils, he replies spontaneously: « It’s always night in my head. »
Désiré is colour-blind from birth and he will lead you into in world of black and white. He marches on hesitantly, as life never brought him much joy. From a tender age, he is going to meet several characters who will elicit in Désiré intense emotions and alter his vision in surprising ways. Is colour at the end of the road?
The game is, at its core, a critique of the modern world and of the perverting nature of a consumer, profit-obsessed society.
The game contains 4 chapters, 50+ scenes, 40+ characters and a lot of riddles.

So let me introduce this young, colour blind boy who, from birth, has only ever perceived the world in black and white. Colours, to him, are as abstract as faith to the atheist. Yet, they plagued his dreams, night and day! This boy’s name is Désiré and his life path will surely surprise you. But enough chit-chat! Go and find out for yourself… »
