Alchemy for the colour-blind

Alchemy for the colour-blind

Message par Katamari_Naneke » 31 Déc 2018 7:36

So I was hoping to recruit a friend to this game, but then I remembered that he's colour-blind. He won't be able to tell the difference between the R+/R- and G+/G- potion results. Is it possible to have something added to the game history & results list (beneath the deduction table) indicating the colour in text? For example,

"~Illustration~ Paralysis: Green Negative."

I'm pretty sure my friend could manage remembering top = red, left = green, right = blue as far as the properties symbols go, but perhaps others might benefit from some kind of key for that as well.

The potion results have different textures. Red has drops on it, blue looks a little foggy, and green like some kind of fabric. Maybe that helps?

How about giving a shape to each color?

I just renewed my photoshop subscription to draw this high quality idea draft, of a molecule and a seal:

It could be a good idea, valid for almost all the games.

In the case of Alchemists, there is also the problem of the players' cubes and pawns.

@jouons : we won't modify the artwork. I'm not sure this is allowed.

My first proposal could be to add tooltips on images, that would be a good solution on computers but not on touch devices

The best is something like that
I am not colorblind, so it is hard to give a good software, but I thing it is the best solution for your friend.
