Gorogoa (XBO) | $4 | Microsoft (Gold Price)
Annapurna Interactive is one of those publishers that when a game gets announced, it immediately has my interest. Typically they are games that can be beat in one or two sittings and leave you thinking about them for days or weeks to come. Gorogoa is certainly one of these. One the surface, Gorogoa is a puzzle game about perspectives. With four quadrants of different bits of scenery, your task is to move layers from one to the other to create new interactions and move the story forward. For instance, a ladder in one window may become a train track in another. Intertwined with this beautifully illustrated puzzle game is also an elegant 2-3 hour story about the protagonist’s life. And at only $4 for Xbox Live Gold members, you should certainly take a closer look.
