Colourblind is a beautifully rendered side-scroller. The object of this mostly monochromatic game is ... well, the subtitle kind of sums it up: Right Eye vs. the Dusty Pirate Clouds from Industrial Landscapes. You play an eyeball (presumably the right one) whose eyeball girlfriend (presumably the left one) has been kidnapped by gloomy clouds. Jump around, avoid the hazards, but make careful use of the colored paintbrushes scattered around. You can only see one color at a time. Colors result in platforms, barricades, spikes and other game field features. Some are helpful, some are not. And those damn clouds can wash away your color with one well-timed downpour.

Bedazzle the Alibi’s Box
Distribution box, silly
In this week’s “Culture Shock”, we called for your designs for Alibi distribution boxes. Send ‘em in and we’ll choose the 12 best/
If we pick yours, we’ll give you $25 for supplies, drop a box off at your place and give you 3 weeks to manifest your creation. Finished boxes will be placed in prominent locations along the Central corridor for all to admire. The Alibi will create a “walking tour” podcast with info about you and your artwork, so everyone can check you out. The city will be that much more beautiful.
You can use any style and medium, as long as you incorporate the word “Alibi” into your design. Boxes still have to work, e.g. the door has to open and shut. If possible, send a sketch of your plan or a photo of previous work. Email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org
or snail mail to
413 Central NW, Albuquerque, 87102
Deadline for proposals is July 1, so get crackin’!
