Sold me entirely on this game in less than 90 seconds. Jan/Jess awesome combo for puzzle games. Love all the brain noises they make.

The whole "pushing a puzzle block that contains a smaller version of you and the puzzle maze you're inside" reminds me of an old (1977) cartoon short I was just thinking about this last weekend. It was called "The Killing of an Egg" where a guy is reacting to his softboiled egg talking to him when he starts tapping the shell only to later hear a familiar tapping to his own small house. It's one of those pretty disturbing animations that gets lodged in your head at a young age and makes you question if it was real or just a fever dream later in life.

I should've seen this game coming after Pix the Cat.

Real "end of 2001" vibes throughout that final puzzle. What a cool execution of a heady idea.

Gives me vague "Inside A Star-Filled Sky" vibes though that's not a puzzle game.

I had no clue the Beach Boys song was "Barbara Ann." I thought it was always just something like, "bop bop bop, bop bop-a-ram."

The only download option is for Mobile? Is this a backend issue?

Obligatory request for this game to come to the Switch (because I sure as shit won't be buying a SteamDeck for years to come)

[edit]

Though since it's native to Linux, I can theoretically play this without issue on my Chromebook...

I could see trying to get past one puzzle for an hour and being completely infuriated. Stoked to pick this up.

This video is totally borked in Video Bomb (android). It doesn't have any video quality settings at all, and just says the video hasn't finished uploading yet when you try to play it.
