AND

Gorogoa is an original puzzle game developed by Buried Signal studio. The author of this production is Jason Roberts, responsible for both the game code and its visual setting. The title appeared, among others, on the PC platform, PS4, etc., and its release was taken by Annapurna Interactive.

Story

The story told in Gorogoa is not subject to unambiguous interpretation. The main character of the game is a boy who collects mysterious objects of religious significance. The story is full of symbolism referring to beliefs from all over the world and has an exceptionally abstract character.

Mechanics

What distinguishes Gorogoa from other logical games released on the PC platform, PS4, etc., are the unusual mechanisms that govern the gameplay. The pillar of the game is solving puzzles, which function on the basis of puzzles (so-called "shifts") consisting of up to four scenes. It is complicated by the fact that we do not match individual parts of one picture, but rather the motifs hidden on each scene - e.g. a bird sitting on a branch on one quarter of the screen, an apple on the second and a bowl on the third one. Arranged properly, the images "come to life", creating a critical scene and thus pushing the action forward.

Technical issues

Gorogoa is characterized by high quality, two-dimensional graphic design, maintained in cartoon style. It looks like a coloured, moving sketch, which looks great on both mobile devices and personal computers.
