Amazing Technicolor World

Go To
Even the load screens are colourful.

Say you just left a mountain prone to mudslides, then you are surprised you stumble upon a Brightly Coloured Rainforest with multicoloured plants and the skies are rainbow. A world that is colorful even without its wildlife. Congratulations, you just entered an Amazing Technicolor World. But an Amazing Technicolor World is not necessarily any world as a whole — it can also be just be part of one.

Not to be confused with Amazing Technicolor Battlefield, but may be associated with it. Most, if not all cases also fall under Scenery Porn. If the world is dangerous, see Dangerously Garish Environment.

  • In Paranoia, the various areas of Alpha Complex are color-coded to match the minimum security clearance needed to be there legally. These start at Infrared (black), then run through the entire rainbow in ascending order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet), before ending with the highest clearance, Ultraviolet, which is represented with white. The color-coding can be as simple as a meter-wide stripe along the walls, but often, the entire area is painted in the relevant color, or there might be a very narrow path of a citizen's assigned color running along the floor. Attempts by unauthorized personnel to alter the color of anything in Alpha Complex is treason.
