MUM’S THE WORDS

EDGE - - PLAY -

Hue’s story is told al­most en­tirely through voiceover, via letters the epony­mous boy’s mother has left for him. Though it’s never re­ally wo­ven into the game’s me­chan­ics, and its at­tempts to marry colours to emo­tions feel con­trived, it’s af­fect­ingly de­liv­ered by ac­tor Anna Ac­ton. As Hue’s mother, she con­veys both an ebul­lient pas­sion for her work and re­gret at how that has im­pinged on her re­la­tion­ship with her son. It’s just enough to en­cour­age you to see how it all shakes out.
