Spectrum

How does your state of mind change the way you perceive the world around you? In the dichromatic world of Spectrum, you can only interact with objects that match your own colour. Sometimes this helps, sometimes it does not, sometimes you might want to change your colour altogether! Switch from red to blue and back to make your way to the white square.

Platforms:

Technology Notes: 
Required for building: SDL v1.2 GLUT Box2D v2.2.0
Installation Instructions: 

On Linux:

Download:

  • SDL v1.2
  • GLUT
  • Box2D v.2.2.0

Inside the root folder run: 

    make clean all && ./color

Note in some cases if you installed Box2d manualy you need to include the `/usr/local/lib` path before running the game, try the following:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib

    ./color

If you wish to use this with Box2D v2.2.1 you will have to modify the source code src/Application.cpp by changing the following line:

    world = new b2World(gravity, false);

with:

    world = new b2World(gravity);

On Windows:

Simply unzip and run the game!
