    the only one I can think of is A Mini Falafel Adventure
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    Tower of Heaven
    Canabalt
    The Pharaoh's Tomb
    probably others I can't remember
    (Hero 3D? if that counts)
    some Homestar Runner stuff, if that counts
    etc.

    also, refusing to use graphical tilesets in Nethack

    also a number of games with very simple coloration, like
    The Power
    Undertale (technically only the demo)
    You Have To Win The Game
    Organ Trail
    Princess Remedy in a World of Hurt

    • the aforementioned Minit
    • Cuphead, if you're a masochist
    • An Unfinished Swan
  • nasty prisms good sir
    Cuphead isn't monochrome, though

    Cuphead isn't monochrome, though

    It has a B&W mode.

    You don't need a fancy mode if your console is connected to the TV with component cables. Just unplug the Cb and Cr cables and you get monochrome. Or unplug the Cb cable but leave the Cr cable for first-generation Technicolor.
  • Shift.

    Yeah I'm digging back into the Flash games.

    Win3.1 Minesweeper has a monochrome mode
  • imagei will watch the heck outta this pumpkin patch

    well i played limbo afterall
  • nasty prisms good sir
    It just occurred to me that certain movies used black-and-white as a sort of artistic choice (e.g. Raging Bull and Schindler's List), and I wondered if any games had done the same and been successful.

    I guess there have been some indie games that did.
