Playing Gorogoa is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle where the pieces are alive.

http://gorogoa.com/

There is not much logic to it. Success relies on your ability to notice visual similarities, usually between elements that are conceptually different. For example, you may see rays of a sun on one tile look like the tines of a gear on another tile and be inspired to move them next to each other. The result could then be that the gear and sun rotate together, unlocking some other part of the world.

Itís full of gorgeous hand-drawn illustration, and half of the gameís enjoyment is just admiring the art. Itís not a hard game. Youíll probably be done with it in 3 hours. Recommended if you like a more meditative puzzling experience.

-Erik

I can second this. Bought the game for my roommate's switch a month or two ago and we spent the better part of the afternoon playing around with it. My one complaint is I always felt like like it had a plot that I was too obtuse to understand and that just around the corner it would finally explain it. And then it didn't.

Huh. You're right.

I guess I didn't try very hard to get the story so it didn't bug me.

Maybe that's good advice for somebody playing it... just don't worry about understanding the story.

Have also played, enjoyed. I don't like how some of the achievements include hidden ones you can't guess at, but that's my only complaint.
