So MD and someone else really opened up a can of worms when they recommended this game to me in the all-encompassing thread. I'm still playing. Still pretty obsessed with it.

I highly, highly recommend this game to anyone who cares about puzzles and open world exploration. There's not much to describe about the game play without giving anything away, but my god the world that's been created in this game is stunning. I can only imagine what this looks like on a real screen, since I'm playing the iOS version.

Below are a few of my favorite images from the game:

Are we really going to start making separate threads for games that have been out for years? I say lock this.

It's more for us to move later. Would be easier to wait until Sarge creates the sub forum

Best of both worlds scenario: you guys should just go ahead and hire a moving/maintenance mod when the time comes.

Actually I don't care either way. Sarge has to create the sub forum because he is admin, so he'll have to move them all. I've actually been meaning to check this out since you first posted about it

Bringing this back on topic...

Watching this guy play through the game is equal parts amusing and wanna-punch-his-face annoying. He is the poster child for smug, lonely gamers. It's encouraging to see him struggle on parts that you already figured out and mind blowing to see him quickly work through the puzzles that took you way too long to solve.

Spoilers, obvi.

I watched five minutes and couldn't watch any more. I got nothing but the "punch him in the face" feeling from that, and I don't want him to ruin the game for me

we have to make up for lost time caused by years of mod oppression.

My son and I were playing this for awhile but then we ran into the first "the land is a puzzle" puzzle and it made both of us a little crazy. Then there's the puzzles that explain their rules by going from step 1 to 2 to 5 and you're left wondering wtf just happened (the puzzles in the treetops come to mind) and neither of us could make the rules stick so we kind of dropped it.

I only bring it up because I saw that it was on the Android store and I was excited to play it but it says I need an NVIDIA Shield to play it. WTF man. It's on the iPad so what the fuck.

I played this game for about an hour and was so confused. I’ve determined I’m too dumb for it.

If I revisited this, I'd probably have to start over. Some of those Tetris puzzles still make no sense to me and now they're built into some of the other puzzles.

My favorite section remains the shady trees and the lab. Those environmental puzzles hit my sweet spot.
