Good day,

First off, as you might see from my title, I am colour blind. I have a variant from the popular red-green colourblindness as well as certain other contrast-blindness.

I had particular problems with the crystals (couldn't see the difference between the green and yellow crystals) and Serenia Dream puzzle. I actually had to get someone to do the above, as I couldn't see whether the light was white or cyan, yellow or green. Both looked white or yellow to me. Some other things also crept up (such as not seeing something!), but that wasn't the end of it all...

I am wondering: do game developers keep the fact in mind that some of their potential players might be colourblind? Statistics show that 1 in 12 men have some sort of colourblindness!

Is there some "fix", for example, the Dream puzzle's colours with colours that have greater contrast?

Thanks!

Well, you could try fiddling with the contrast, gamma sliders in the graphics options. I can't think of anything beyond that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
