Aptly named for the contrast-themed Ludum Dare Mini LD #36, Paste's Contraste proves that platformers are an excellent, or at least efficient, way to implement mechanics built around a theme. In the game, players adjust their color to pass through objects of different contrast.
Fortunately, Paste doesn't rely on mechanics alone. Contraste contains clever narrative that pops up for extra laughs and mild reprieve. It may lack the voice acting and visual effects of Thomas Was Alone, but the text provides an extra incentive to work through Contraste's puzzle platforming.
