MUM’S THE WORDS
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.
