We see a lot of interesting games at Alpha Beta Gamer, but Gorogoa is 15 minutes of the most unique, innovative and intelligent gameplay we’ve experienced this year.
Gameplay is spilt across four beautifully illustrated and animated panels that helped win it the IGF Excellence in Visual Arts Award. These four panels can be moved around, zoomed in and out of and placed on top of each other to solve puzzles, allowing your character to continue his journey through the beautifully crafted world. As you progress, the panels interact with each other in a variety of surprising and delightful ways, allowing for plenty of ‘wow that’s clever’ moments.
Gorogoa is targeted for release late in 2014 for PC & Mac, then subsequently mobile platforms. With it’s beautiful animation (the GIF above doesn’t do it justice), intelligent design and unique gameplay it’s bound to win more awards when it’s released. Personally, it’s already my GOTY. Highly Recommended.
