Patch Notes v.

We'd like to start by saying thank you to everyone who has been playing Chroma Shift. We hope you're having a great time!

Thanks to community feedback and playthroughs, we have identified several bugs and issues, which we have addressed. We thank you for your patience as we sort out these issues. You can view the changes below.



-Fixed a glitch where Theta's Dash ability would occasionally fail to break walls, improved its hit detection

-Added collision checks to characters on left and right edges of screen, will prevent dashing, jumping and gliding off screen and locking movement.

-Added changes to the camera to auto zoom out if players were about to go off-screen, and to prevent players zooming in when doing so would leave them off-screen.

-Fixed Anti-Aliasing settings glitch which prevented the AA from being on anything other than low after changing the settings for the first time.

-Added fix for black screen on client when joining game.


-Added several orbs to levels where falling down areas cost the player significant time and added nothing to solving the actual puzzle

-Created spawners for orbs in certain levels where a simple mistake for players forced them to redo whole puzzles. These will spawn at a point where they let the players get back to where they were before the mistake. They do not change the way the puzzles are solved.

-Removed some unnecessary walls and areas that just confused the movement of some levels

-Added a tutorial decal to the beginning of the game to aid with new players picking up controls

-Added several visual aids to help with some of the more obscure areas for the players to go.

-Removed several possibilities for the players to get stuck.


The black screen glitch is hard to replicate reliably for testing. The fix implemented seems to remove the bug but it may still be present.



-Removed a debug instance of controls that remained in the live version


Teleporting and maps not loading correctly were a side effect of these debug controls, those should no longer be possible. Should fix all instances of maps not streaming in and players randomly changing colours.

About This Game

CHROMA SHIFT is a cooperative, side-scrolling puzzle game, where the players utilize different colours throughout the environment to solve challenging puzzles. Set in a devastated future version of earth the players must uncover the secrets of the past and find a way to restore power to their home.

Standing in their way are co-operative color based puzzles that the two characters must overcome with clever use of their abilities and shifting between different colored energy sources. Theta, a large hydraulic based machine can smash through obstacles in his way and carry and throw heavy objects. Psi, a smaller, four armed machine, can transform and bypass security terminals to gain access to new areas.

Key Features:
  • Cooperative Focus - Every part of the game designed with two players in mind. Taking on this challenge by yourself will prove difficult, bring a friend, help each other. You’ll need them for what you’ll face.
  • 6 Uniquely Themed Environments - Whether you're exploring the depths of the Foundry, or trying to make it through the Arboretum, each environment has its own unique look and feel
  • Mind Bending Puzzles - With over 60 puzzles to solve! It might be two dimensional movement, but you’re going to need to think in more than just a straight line if you plan on making it past the facilities defenses.
  • Colours Everywhere - Each area requires the use of the correct energy source to progress. These energy sources are represented by a certain colour. Objects with the same energy source will aid you. But beware, for objects of any other energy source will hinder or even harm you.
  • Environmental Narrative - The very world you walk through tells a story, whether it be the purpose of the area you are exploring, or something about the world, each area has interesting things to see or think about, if you care to look.
  • Collectibles - The environment tells one half of the story, but scattered throughout the facility are fragments of information you can find. N.O.D.E.s are hiding all around, carrying either schematics, or audio logs. Each of these holds an interesting piece of information on objects, characters or history.
  • Colour Blind Mode - Customisable Colours so you can change each main colour to your personal preference for comfortable and easy play.
  • Steam Friends Integration for easy invite and play
  • Same-Screen Co-op: 2 players on the keyboard, 1 controller and 1 keyboard or 2 controllers.
  • Steam Achievements - See if you can get them all!
