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.

Great! With a few hiccups,
The game was outstanding! I loved the game play and however there were some scenes, that you wish your parents wouldn’t want to see, it has a great moral nonetheless. I would love if Désiré would walk faster. ( I know many of the comments include this complaint. ) But other than that, my issues with it are just me nagging. Thank you, not only was it thought-provoking, it was real! However, if you get easily offended, and are sensitive to political and religious stances, I highly advice to; not play this game. Other than that, I can’t believe it’s free!
Fun and sometimes tricky
It’s a great game that follows what we expect from a point and click. Definitely covers controversial topics at times. I’d call it rated R. Translated from French, not perfect translations but it doesn’t get in the way.
Great music. Good variety of puzzle types. Sometimes you can get the puzzles easily and some are tricky. Sometimes you can’t pick up an object you need because you don’t know you need it yet or you can’t use it yet. Certain conversations trigger certain objects to become useful. There’s a few walkthroughs out there to help you, some better than others. Final thought, save often (nap sack... tools... save... choose save slot.)
I love this game, the storyline, artwork and concept is very unique. I have played almost all of the point and click adventure games the App Store has to offer and this one would be in my top 10. I hope there will be sequel. My only issue was with trying to open the safe because it was at the bottom of the screen near the edge, it took a couple tries but it eventually worked, I blame my fat fingers not the developer. Other than that no issues with crashing or anything. 5 stars. Keeping my fingers crossed in hope for a sequel.
