I picked this up on a whim this morning on Switch and finished it in a couple of incredible hours. The art is hand-drawn and fantastic, and it's filled with so many awesome "aha!" moments when you figure out how things fit together. Avoid trailers if you can, the discovery of the central mechanic is part of the joy.

It's out on iOS and Steam too, and works just as well with touch controls as with an analogue stick and buttons. It'll be sitting near the top of my 2017 list for sure.

Yeah I saw Rami Ismail talking about this game on Twitter and he had nothing but high, high praise for it

I bought it after seeing this thread and I've played about an hour of it, and I just love it so far. It's a wonderful, inventive puzzle game and everyone should play it. I'm a little bit sad that it's coming out after all the GOTY stuff, it's certainly a contender for my top 10 of the year.

It looks suited for touchscreens. Hopefully it comes to Android.

Bought this two days ago on Switch, absolutely fantastic game. Wish it were a bit longer, but had a great time.

Just finished this and really enjoyed it. Do wish that it was a little longer or played around more with one part of the ideas it used that is only ever used once. I had a similar experience with both Monument Valley games where just as they start to really expand on the gameplay ideas the game ends. It's a very beautiful and intuitive experience that everyone should play.
