I'm assuming that this is envisioned as a kid friendly game.i've been inspired to make a game that does something like what this guy's powers are in that book, but i'm not sure the puzzle/gameplay mechanics yet.

This sounds kind of like an interesting modern take on A Boy and His Blob, which was one of my favorite NES games as a kid. I know they remade it or updated it or something, but I haven't played the new one. Anyway, the different flavored jelly beans changed the blob in all different ways. Punch flavor turned the blob into a hole you can fall through, Licorice flavor turned the blob into a ladder, Strawberry flavor turned the blob into a bridge, etc.Based mainly on the first pages, I could see a platform/puzzle game based around the following :
You can change color at will, and touching objects will give them properties depending on the color (flying, getting bigger/smaller, moving/staying still, ...) you have when you touch them.
You can reset all objects at once, but this does not reset the level (you might need for example to batch reset objects so their new position frees the exit).
The puzzle part is figuring out how to cross the level, the platform part attaining the objects necessary.
I'd use LocoRoco and Heave Ho as references.
For visual clarity, you can have simple black and white backgrounds with greyscale objects, and plain colors instead of spots. Not quite unlike Mirror's Edge.
And if not, then why the heck not!Is there anyone else reading this who has a survey link but hasn't filled it in yet?
