Still a work in progress, Gorogoa is a lovingly hand-illustrated world suspended inside of a unique puzzle. To solve the puzzle, the player rearranges a few tiles on a simple grid, placing them next to or on top of one another. But each tile is also a window into a different part of the game world--or perhaps into a different world--and each window plays like its own little game. Even so, the key to progressing never lies within one tile, but in the connections between tiles.

The game is tentatively targeted for release in early / mid 2014, initially on PC and Mac, subsequently on mobile platforms.
