Under rating threshold (show) is anyone else having issues with the game being too big on here to play? i can't see the bottom or right side, and therefore, can't get out of the conversation with the tree :(

Have you tried zooming out the browser window? CTRL+ mousewheel up or down.

No sequels, sorry ;) Works best as a standalone.

Under rating threshold (show) I think Scud422 in top 5 comments is right; I think it just might be booze that the potion woman makes. Did you notice that after you give the happiness potion to the depressed squirrel, when you come back, he is on the ground and out literally drunk? Well, when I think about it, a lot of drinkers might call booze "happiness potions". XD

Under rating threshold (show) Hmm... 1-- a guy escapes from his routine, dull world to a too-perfect world bursting with color and magic; 2-- He goes on quests in a way that you only get to do in your fleeting, tearfully missed, and sometimes hostilely sought lost childhood; 3-- He encounters all manner of unreasonable and impossible creatures, many non-sentient of which have faces and voices; like the tree and the cloud that got stuck in its branches, and the giant desert stag beetle... yeah the beetle: let's talk about the beetle; 4-- He has a whole conversation with something that itself admits is the guy's very own hallucination, seeming to have a higher self awareness than the monks......... I don't know what kind of Acid it is, or where the Detective gets it, but he better hit me up with some drops, 'cuz life is beginning to be all I can take.

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

Just one thing - the world is not meant to be perfect (there are bad things happening), but the outlook on everything going on is what is different from our world. And that is the main difference.

Under rating threshold (show) If you've played the game "Take a Walk" you may notice the music that plays when you talk to the squirrel on the Happy Town sign is the same as the 2nd music piece in "Take a Walk".

+ - !

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

Yes it is. But we did not know it at the time (Take a walk was out before TGR. We just picked music that best suited the ambiance.

Under rating threshold (show) I cried. The world truly does need a dose of colour and of change. But where do we start? Perhaps simply in our own backyard…

Under rating threshold (show) This strongly reminds me of Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson in its relation of magic, color, and Breath; however, the specifics of it are different enough to be intriguing. Beyond that, this game is quite delightful.

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

For all this will do, the game is unrelated to Warbreaker - even the concept of breath is accidental. I'd read Sanderson before, but Warbreaker I read after the Grey Rainbow was done.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice to see the Developer still reading comments on a game that hasn't had 'Game News' in nearly 2 years, about the time it was the badge of the day. As other people have noted: the story is excellent and has a level of depth and design that is becoming less and less common these days. Thanks for the game!

Me "I told my girlfriend I didn't love her" Wizzard "Wish I had a girlfriend" (looks sad suddenly) ...... OK, well, I'll try this again. Me "I used steroids in gym class" Wizzard "I don't know what those are, but OK I guess; what else?" Me "I put a worm in a girl's ear" Wizzard "That wasn't nice, you should apologize" ............ Dude, are you serious Wizzard? I thought you were evil; do you have some kind of pirate's code for what is evil or something? LMAO Like "linkforever" in the top 5 comments said: hilarious.

Under rating threshold (show) I found myself tearing up at the end. Very few games can achieve beauty like this. It's something that the adventure genre sort of comes with, this raw interaction with a world, but not everyone can create a world worth being in, and interacting with. You did. This was a wonderful escape into a place with people I won't forget. Thank you.

I don't believe so. The game was never intended to have a sequel, unlike Tainted Olive.

The graphics fit the game, I think :) Tainted Olive has much better and more serious drawings, because it fits the story and world.

Under rating threshold (show) I got the same problem as PCX Firebird. After a mission, I get a gray screen, same thing at the start of the game. If I keep clicking, I go through several of them, then the game comes back. I assume they are supposed to be cutscenes. I guess they're broken for me and firebird.

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

Cutscenes, probably, yes. Try waiting for several seconds without clicking, like Firebird did. They should come back on. I just played through the game again and encountered no problem (using Chrome and Opera 12)

Under rating threshold (show) There is a bad glitch when I play... after I get done with a mission, and before I go back up to the mountain, it gives me a grey screen with the mouse pointer in the top left corner, and the music button in the bottom left corner. Could you fix that please?

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

We haven't had anyone with that bug yet. Can you tell me more details? Which chapter? Does the grey screen happen after you click the mountain, or after you click the map? Anything else?
