Gorogoa

Gorogoa

It may be only two hours long, but in those two hours, Gorogoa tells a beautiful story of a life ravaged by war and enriched by spirituality. Assisting this narrative is some wonderfully original puzzle gameplay in which you peel back the layers of each scene to discover new ones. Objectives are accomplished by exploiting perspective tricks and recombining elements separated in space and time, and it all works marvellously. The controls are perfectly simple, and the visual clues for puzzle solutions have that vital quality of being subtle at first but obvious in hindsight. The length is the only real flaw, and then only because there’s so much potential in these mechanics, only the surface of which has been scratched. Aesthetically, the game is adequate at worst and quietly arresting at best.
